Middlebury, Connecticut

Pat Griskus Triathlon Series
80F / 27C
Total Time = 2h 16m 53s
Overall Rank = 9/303
Age Group = Male 20-24
Age Group Rank = 3/12
Pre-race routine:

I woke up 4 hours before the race began, showered, and arrived at the race venue at 05:10.
Event warmup:

10 min, 1.4 mi.
  • 31m 9s
  • 1760 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

A disappointing swim time, but it had to be measured long. About 1 min of this swim should be included in T1 because the time mat was located at the entrance to T1.
What would you do differently?:

Be a better swimmer.
Transition 1
  • 00m 49s

A good transition.
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 08m 6s
  • 25 miles
  • 22.03 mile/hr

A decent bike ride for me, but not great. I should have been able to perform better given the contour of the road.
What would you do differently?:

Be a stronger cyclist.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Included in Bike Leg.
What would you do differently?:

  • 36m 51s
  • 10 kms
  • 03m 41s  min/km

I was disappointed with my performance because I got out-run. It did a good job at fueling me to train harder, however.
What would you do differently?:

Not much I could do. Just run faster.
Post race
Warm down:

A little jogging and stretching.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

A nice race.
