Dallas Athletes Racing
85F / 29C
Total Time = 1h 25m 4s
Overall Rank = 257/419
Age Group = Female 20-24
Age Group Rank = 5/14
Pre-race routine:

Woke up 2 hours early

2 pieces of toast with peanut butter
1/4 of an apple
Event warmup:

Swam 50 yards and a little bit of stretching. I got cold so I tried to do some jumping jacks before my start.
  • 05m 57s
  • 250 yards
  • 02m 23s / 100 yards

I did not feel good in the swim this time, I swam slower than even my practice times. I think being cold and not being able to warm up significantly made it difficult to have a good swim. This swim was more difficult than longer swims I've done.
What would you do differently?:

Try to warm up better.
Transition 1
  • 02m 18s

Even colder getting out of the pool than getting into it which just made everything more difficult. I was happy with it overall, a little slower than ideal.
What would you do differently?:

Practice more
  • 47m 10s
  • 12 miles
  • 15.27 mile/hr

Felt great, impressed myself with my speed. It was nice to see all the hard work riding into headwinds was worth it since I managed my fastest average speed with no wind on race day.
What would you do differently?:

Work on form
Transition 2
  • 01m 3s

Got confused when exiting transition area and had to run back through the transition area to the run exit.
What would you do differently?:

Look to see where the run exit is before the race.
  • 28m 34s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 31s  min/mile

Felt good, PR for 3 mile time.
What would you do differently?:

Keep training
Post race
Warm down:

Very little stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Being cold

Event comments:

It was a good race, overall well organized. The vendors after the race were helpful and nice. I enjoyed this race much more than my first race (Cooper Sprint Tri). If I wasn't moving I would like to do more of the Dallas Athletes races.
