Hamilton, Ontario
HSBC Multisport Canada Triathlon Series
Total Time = 8h 30m
Overall Rank = 18/104
Age Group = 40-49
Age Group Rank = 6/11
Pre-race routine:

None! Didn't even know I was doing it until 45 minutes before the race. Someone had dropped out and I took their spot. Raced home and grabbed some gear. Made it back with not a second to spare.
Event warmup:

Race from car with all my gear, dropped it in transition area, ran to the water in my bike shorts. As I touched the beach, the horn went off. I had to ask some of the people waiting where we were swiming to!
  • 08m 38s
  • 400 meters
  • 02m 10s / 100 meters
What would you do differently?:

Know I was racing or decide quicker.
Transition 1
  • 01m 54s
What would you do differently?:

Need to stop fussy around. Just go! Still having troubles getting on a wet jersey.
  • 20m 40s
  • 10 kms
  • 29.03 km/hr

Not a good ride. Only averaged 29 KM/H. Out of gas from swim.
What would you do differently?:

Check tire pressure!

Transition 2
  • 01m 41s

Again, just fussing about. Need to just go!
What would you do differently?:

Forgot to take off helmet even after all that time. Didn't wear socks and it still took forever. That seemed to work out ok. Will try that in practices.
  • 13m 6s
  • 2.5 kms
  • 05m 14s  min/km

Had a stich for most of km 2. Lack of training for run/brick really showed here.
