View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Challenge Copenhagen
21C / 70F
Total Time = 1h 11m 7s
Overall Rank = 264/1092
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 50/83
Pre-race routine:

Went to work as race was in late afternoon/evening
Event warmup:

Did not do any warm up - knew that the swim would be sought of a warm up for given the current state of my swimming abilities
  • 09m 43s
  • 400 meters
  • 02m 26s / 100 meters
What would you do differently?:

Learn a proper freestyle
Transition 1
  • 04m 45s

Just bad but its my first race. Lost track of where my bike was. Not good on a sprint like this.
What would you do differently?:

Memorize the location of my bike.
  • 35m 4s
  • 18 kms
  • 30.80 km/hr

Started out too fast but got my puls down. Perhaps I even maintained a puls that was too low since my rank in the run was significantly better.
What would you do differently?:

Take it easy in the beginning and try not rush it.
Transition 2
  • 03m 53s

Again very bad.
What would you do differently?:

Do an iron man distance instead so that transitions doesn't matter as much
  • 17m 43s
  • 4 kms
  • 04m 26s  min/km

Did well and perhaps too well since I fear I might have held back on the bike just a little too much. Otherwise it seems I have a relative advantage on the run leg compared to bike
What would you do differently?:

Not much. Really kept it cool and felt like a robot. Of course not a superman pace, but with more training I shure I'll do better next time. Would like to run a distance like this in 4 min/km some day.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training and transition technique.

Event comments:

Organized for the first time. Generally ok but they had some probems with the bike course wich was a 2x lap. They should have done more to inform people on the course that you needed to do 2 laps eg.using signs and not just voulenteers shouting"second lap" at the very last minute. . Many I think missed the warnings.
