Cheyenne Sprint Triathlon
70F / 21C
Total Time = 1h 16m 27s
Overall Rank = 20/66
Age Group = M45-49
Age Group Rank = 3/13
Pre-race routine:

Again, failed to get a decent nights sleep before the race...maybe 3-4 hours of quality sleep. Had a bowl of granola and a large coffee on the drive up. Arrived and set up a bit late, almost didn't get setup before they closed transition. Oops. Pre-race meeting and down to the swim start.
Event warmup:

200m swim, then wait 15 minutes to start. The usual.
  • 13m 36s
  • 600 meters
  • 02m 16s / 100 meters

Well the time doesn't reflect it, but I felt I was having a decent swim for me. Sighted pretty well, felt a good, steady stroke was maintained throughout. No "oh shit" moments, kept HR in check and got out of the water feeling OK. The time reflected a fairly pedestrian swim though, certainly not a fast swim. Oh well... it is what it as for now.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing that I can think of
Transition 1
  • 01m 10s

The wet suit was a little difficult to get off the ankles, other than that, OK.
What would you do differently?:

More Body Glide on the ankles perhaps
  • 36m 34s
  • 14 miles
  • 22.97 mile/hr

Good bike, pushed about as hard as I could, without really trashing the run. No issues with the bike on this day.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 46s

The dismount was less than smooth, once I got off the bike, I went right through T2 pretty well.
What would you do differently?:

Keep one foot on the a pedal on the dismount so I have leverage to swing the other leg over the top tube.
  • 24m 18s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 49s  min/mile

Never found my running legs, and had no gas in the tank to push it. Run time was 30 seconds slower than last year, and 15 sec/mile slower than I was hoping for. I have really not had a good run yet this season and I will have to revisit why that might be....
What would you do differently?:

I am not sure, but I will be working on figuring it out.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around and socialize with other finishers. A couple bottles of water, bananas and a really tasty breakfast burrito.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Again, one of the best run races of any size I have done. This continues to be a favorite and I will be back every year. I might add this is a good race for beginners, as well.
