Alcon Tri for Sight - TriathlonSprint

View Member's Race Log
Lexington, KY
United States
Total Time = 2h 27m 58s
Overall Rank = 53/61
Age Group = 30-35
Age Group Rank = 9/12
Pre-race routine:

I didn't register until the day before so I had to start in the last wave of swimmers. I didn't realize how this would affect me until the day of the race. I didn't start until an hour after the race time, so my food was all messed up.
Event warmup:

Out of all contestants, I was 168/182 or in the 92%
I was 87% out of women and 75% in my age group.
  • 18m 5s
  • 800 meters
  • 02m 16s / 100 meters

I was 57% out of all women
What would you do differently?:

I would learn how to do the kick turns at the end of the lanes. I would wear good goggles. I would register early so I didn't have to swim last.
Transition 1
  • 07m 43s

First of all, you had to run all over God's green earth to get to the transition. I lost my bike because I was nervous and it was knocked over. I had a snack and I was really glad because my food was messed up. I put my shorts on while I was wet, which wasn't good. I ran barefoot, which I would probably do again...
What would you do differently?:

I would make sure my transition area was better. I would wear shorts into the pool instead of trying to put them on.
  • 1h 13m 30s
  • 18 miles
  • 14.69 mile/hr

I was 70% out of women overall.
Transition 2
  • 02m

don't remember much about the transition here....
  • 46m 40s
  • 4 miles
  • 11m 40s  min/mile

I was pretty tired on the run. Also, it was four miles, which I thought made it harder. It was a beautiful run though through the campus park area. I enjoyed it.

I was 84% overall for women
What would you do differently?:

Just keep on keeping on is the motto for me on the run.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

The food situation was a big factor I think on me being tired during the run.

Event comments:

Looking forward to doing this one again next year and improving my time. I hope I am going to kick ass!

Performance: Average
The race was in a pool and I think I swam well. I didn't have swimming lessons at this point, so I didn't know how to do the turns at the end of the lanes. Also, I had to start an hour later than I anticipated, which means that my food timing was all messed up.
