View Member's Race Log
Surf City, NC
United States
78F / 26C
Total Time = 1h 02m 36s
Overall Rank = 71/112
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 9/17
Pre-race routine:

Drove down night before and got packet; got up and drove back race morning with two friends who were also racing; set up transition area
Event warmup:

jogged a mile; rode 4 and walked in the ocean to prepare myself for water temp
  • 14m 16s
  • 800 yards
  • 01m 47s / 100 yards

did not swim well at all; free style maybe 25% of time, breast stroke the rest; got out of sync after swallowing first wave; never got into a groove; everytime did freestyle, ended up pulling to the right (toward the beach)
What would you do differently?:

try to concentrate more on stroke; try to find a way to swim in the ocean some more for practice
Transition 1
  • 02m

was easier getting shoes on than expected; feet were clean, no need for water;
  • 25m 23s
  • 8 miles
  • 18.91 mile/hr

could have pushed harder
Transition 2
  • 00m 30s
  • 22m 59s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 25s  min/mile

could have pushed a little more;
What would you do differently?:

push harder on run
Post race
Warm down:

jogged and stretched

What limited your ability to perform faster:

not pushing myself to go all out, reserving energy which I should have used; have to get more in race metality for these short races

Nice time on the race. Your run was very fast especially considering that you ran on sand!
