Indian Springs Tri the Parks - TriathlonSprint

View Member's Race Log
Jackson, ga
United States
79F / 26C
Total Time = 1h 17m 20s
Overall Rank = 105/438
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 19/50
Pre-race routine:

Drove 1 1/2 from home, ate a Snickers Marathon Bar and drank half of a Gatorade Endurace
Event warmup:

Slow swim...felt great especially after my shoulder injury earlier this year that limited my training
  • 13m 47s
  • 600 meters
  • 02m 18s / 100 meters

Stayed with the lead pack for the first 200 meters then started to drop back
What would you do differently?:

I need to get back to doing speed work in the pool. Due to my injury I have only been doing slow base yards.
Transition 1
  • 01m

T1 was on grass and there was a small hill that you had to run down to get to the road. Kind of treacherous in bike shoes
What would you do differently?:

  • 38m 18s
  • 12.4 miles
  • 19.43 mile/hr

I drank too much on the bike at first and got a horrible side stitch about 8 miles into the ride. Overall I was happy to break 40 minutes on the bike
What would you do differently?:

Not drink as much
Transition 2
  • 00m 40s

The downhill out of T1 was an uphill out of T2. I had the advantage as my rack was on the end closest to the bike exit/entry
  • 24m 5s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 46s  min/mile

The side stitch finally went away after the first 1 1/2 miles of the run were done. After that I was able to run my normal pace (sub 7). Overall I was a little disappointed with this split as I am normally around 20 min for a 5k
What would you do differently?:

drink less on the bike
Post race
Warm down:

walked around and talked to friends and drank water

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I have done virtually no speed work in any of the events. The plan is to get my speed up for the Olympic at West Point or Richard Russell.

Event comments:

The Tri the Parks series is a great race series for those just getting into the sport. I recommed it to all of my beginning athletes.
