Pre-race routine:

Decided to take the train instead of ride my bike to the Y. Turned out to be a mistake, since the train took forever and I missed my wave. Ended up having to wait around a while before I could start.
Event warmup:

None, really. Some stretching and a G-2.
  • 10m
  • 620 yards
  • 01m 37s / 100 yards

I finished with the 5th fastest swim, which I was happy about. The two other people in my wave were incredibly slow, so I missed having a rabbit to chase. On the other hand, it kept me from going out too fast and getting tired at the end.
Transition 1
  • 00m

No real T1-- we had 15 minutes to get to the bike, so I changed out of my bathing suit and put on my Brooklyn Tri Club tri gear. Represent, yo.
  • 30m
  • 19.24 miles
  • 38.48 mile/hr

I really wanted to break 20 miles and I came close. I didn't have my cycling shoes, which might have helped a little. Got the third-fastest bike time among guys and was first after the first two events.
What would you do differently?:

Cycling shoes would have been nice,but my cleats aren't compatible w/the spinbikes,so I don't know that it's worth the trouble. Otherwise fine. I also would have picked a bike with the water bottle on the handlebars, so I didn't have to reach for it. There's really no way to pull a bottle out of a downtube cage without slowing down when you're going at a million rpm.
Transition 2
  • 00m

5 mintes between bike and run. Stretched stretched stretched.
  • 20m
  • 2.15 miles
  • 09m 18s  min/mile

I knew I was going to basically concede the run because of my calf injury, so I walked for a while and then jogged at a really slow pace. In the past I've been right around 8:00, but it wasn't going to be in the cards--I wasn't about to jeopardize the rest of my season over an indoor tri in February. Only managed 19th place out of 26.
What would you do differently?:

Not be hurt.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My calf injury was the only limiter. Otherwise I improved significantly in every area over last year. I had the highest score over the first two events, which were the only ones I could really compete in, so I'm happy with the result. Also worth noting, I think, was that although there's no AG's in this event, if there had been, I'd have finished 2nd in my AG.

Event comments:

I've done this race every year and I really like it as a beginning-of-the-season race to see where I am at the end of the winter. I still think it's a little expensive for an indoor tri and I wish there was a little more swag considering the $60 entry fee. (it's sponsored by a tri store. Howzabout a gel? A pair of socks? a coupon? Somethin?), but as indoor tri's go, it's fun. Doug, who runs the events is one of the best people in the NYC tri community.
