5430 Sports Corp.
84F / 29C
Total Time = 1h 40m 14s
Overall Rank = 483/1054
Age Group = M 40-44
Age Group Rank = 56/91
Pre-race routine:

2 Pancakes with PB for bfast. Nibbled on a bagel before race start
Event warmup:

15 minute ride. 10 minute run. 10 minute swim.
  • 16m 5s
  • 880 yards
  • 01m 50s / 100 yards

I was out of the water at 14:45. Overall, pretty happy with my swim. I started near the front of the group, maybe a liitle too far forward, but I would probably start there or close to it again. Better than waiting in the back for everyone to get going.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe start a LITTLE further back for what my speed was, but not much.
Transition 1
  • 01m 20s

Hopped on the bike and promptly went off the road. Rubber band didn't break. I had to reach down and break it. Had a hard time getting into my shoes.
What would you do differently?:

More practice hopping on bike and getting into shoes.
  • 55m 2s
  • 17 miles
  • 18.53 mile/hr

Very disappointed in my speed. Had hoped for closer to 21 mph. My bike fitness was not where it should have been.
What would you do differently?:

More training miles
Transition 2
  • 01m 19s

Couldn't find my stuff!! Took at least 10 seconds looking for my spot (it was only 2 bike racks away).
What would you do differently?:

Mark my spot with something.
  • 26m 29s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 32s  min/mile

My Polar pace and distance were reading too fast! I was holding a sub 8:00 pace according to my watch, but overall was actually 8:33!! I don't know if I could have run much faste anyway.
What would you do differently?:

Make sure watch calibration is correct before the race.
Post race
Warm down:

None. Some stretching.

Event comments:

Another great 5430 event! Will plan on continuing to do this event in the future!
