Pacing and trying to figure out the route LOL

stretching, just jogged about minute

Comments:

I felt out of breath the whole way. I was BOP as expected since I only jog. However, I was shocked to see my time for the first mile. No wonder I was out of breath! I have never run that fast that far! In fact, on a treadmill I have only done a 10" pace for about 1/4 mile.
What would you do differently?:

Had on tech long sleeve, tech running jacket, and bike jacket, and my bike gloves. Should not have worn the running jacket, but if it rained harder I thought I would be cold on the bike.
Transition 1
  • 01m 5s
Comments:

Fumbled a bit getting glasses on and the helmet over my hat with the gloves on. Then slogging thru the mud over to the road.
What would you do differently?:

not sure, needed the hat because of the rain. Maybe the gloves should have been put on in transition instead of before the run.

Comments:

As expected, right at the back. Passed by several, I passed one. Finished the bike section next to last. Not too bad for my old steelie. Pretty much at my top training speed.
Actually felt that I recovered my breath on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Get a road bike
Transition 2
  • 00m 41s
Comments:

smooth and pretty quick, had to dodge a couple mud puddles.
took off helmet and gloves. left on glasses and hat and jacket. I had the race belt over the bike jacket and didn't want to fight with it.
What would you do differently?:

nothing

Comments:

Still wished I had one less layer on. Felt sloggy but tried to concentrate on form. Passed 2-3 people.

Must have done okay. Another faster than my average run! Totally shocked at my run times! In a good way LOL
What would you do differently?:

nothing
Post race
Warm down:

Tried to breathe! LOL Walked around, changed my outer layer of clothes. Ate and drank a little.

Event comments:

This was my first multi-sport event (actually only my 2nd event ever, since 1st one was a 5K in November.

This gave me some experience in a group and in transitions to give me a base to work from. Glad I did it.

Dee, what a phenomenal race, especially with the obviously sloppy conditions out there! Whatever your secret is for shaving that much off your expected run time is, you need to share it. Great job!

It was cool to meet you there. Congrats on doing so well in your first multi-sport event. You will only see your times improve as you do more, and moving to a road bike will definitely help with that.Thanks for finding me and saying Hi.
