View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Hamilton, Ontario
HSBC Triathlon Series
24F / -4C
Total Time = 1h 42m 43s
Overall Rank = 36/182
Age Group = M 40-44
Age Group Rank = 5/15
Pre-race routine:

Set up transition, registered, visited the porto-potty.
Event warmup:

20 min easy run, followed by some stretching.
200 m easy swim
  • 16m 46s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 14s / 100 meters

Need to work on breathing and navigation. First wetsuit swim of the year so I should not be too hard on myself.

Would have hoped to swim faster. Rememer there is a long run to T1 which is included in the swim time.
Transition 1
  • 01m 28s

No tri shoes so I put the shoes on in T1. No socks. Other than the suit getting stuck on my left heel T1 was good.
  • 50m 52s
  • 27 kms
  • 31.85 km/hr

Good bike ride. Got up to speed in 5 min. Took my liquid on the rollers.
Transition 2
  • 01m 8s

Good transition.
What would you do differently?:

Not take a gel in T2. Take it on the run.
  • 32m 30s
  • 6.5 kms
  • 05m  min/km

Got into a steady pace that I could keep moving and not blow up. Never chacked my watch until the last km.
Post race
Warm down:

Light stretch. Dip in the lake. Eat. Drink.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Fear of pain.

Event comments:

Well organized. Great race site. Good course. Will consider this race again next year.
