View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Bodegraven, utrecht
20C / 68F
Total Time = 1h 21m 40s
Overall Rank = 128/181
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 20/31
Pre-race routine:

x2 running training (3K, 6K) / 3 swim training (1K each just distance) / no cycling training
Event warmup:

  • 15m
  • 500 meters
  • 03m / 100 meters

Was last I think (we started in waves) I had not surprisingly a very poor swim.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 02m

time estimate
Was disoriented out of the water could not find my spot easily, took it way too slow to transition.
What would you do differently?:

recon the transition area where to exit the water, way from water to bike.
  • 39m
  • 20 kms
  • 30.77 km/hr

Took me 7K to get in the mood, on 20K that doesn't leaves much to make a difference
What would you do differently?:

exit the water faster to be more on the attack (and I need better wheels)
Transition 2
  • 02m

time is an estimate I don't know for sure.
Again I was disoriented could not find my shoes, entered the wrong row of bikes at to run back and forth, that wasn't very efficient, the rest went quite okay
What would you do differently?:

again recon the transition area to figure the ways in and out.
  • 23m 40s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 44s  min/km

Run went quite well, it felt weird after the bike, but I could find a rhythm pretty fast and then it went okay. I enjoy the fact that we had to run the 5K on 4 laps, that made it easier once you completed the first you could adjust your pace.
What would you do differently?:

run faster...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

lack of training

Event comments:

It's a nice small events - at a nice time of the year - nice for closing the season.
