Pre-race routine:

Indoor Tri, starting at 9am
Event warmup:

10 min spin, calibrate power trainer.

  • 09m 13s
  • 500 meters
  • 01m 50s / 100 meters

Much improved swim pace for me.
Transition 1
  • 01m 8s

Run from pool to the far gym to the bike already setup on trainer
  • 27m 11s
  • 12.5 kms
  • 27.59 km/hr

All the power trainers were set to 70kg riders. This was an advantage to the heavier guys, and harder for the lighter ones. I was only a minute slower than a female ITU pro - and the poor 15 year old kid was just struggling with it for almost into the next wave.
What would you do differently?:

Going to recommend that they set the weight based on a weigh in as they have an electric scale right outside the gym. Didn't matter much to me as I'm around that weight.

My powermeter battery was dying so there are big gaps of 0 power in my profile. My goal was to hold over 210 for the whole thing and I'm pretty sure I did.

Transition 2
  • 00m 20s

Off bike, shoes off, Zoonie shoes on, off.
  • 12m 13s
  • 3 kms
  • 04m 04s  min/km

Thought I was holding sub 4 but guess not.

Event comments:

It's in the middle of winter and it's a good start to the season and rewards off-season work. Lots of elite or sub/elite participants too.

They need to figure out how to calibrate the power resistance to account for weight.
