Lakeville, Minnesota

The South Metro STORM Swim Club
60F / 16C
Total Time = 1h 16m 53s
Overall Rank = 6/314
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 3/20
Event warmup:

Just a few strokes in the lake - nothing else for warm-up.
  • 06m 49s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 33s / 100 yards

Decent swim for me! The wetsuit seemed to help! (First time in wetsuit in a sprint.)
What would you do differently?:

Not much. I was a little wide at the first turn, so I could work on that, but that's about it.
Transition 1
  • 02m 16s

Long run up beach.
  • 48m 31s
  • 17.3 miles
  • 21.39 mile/hr

Decent effort on the bike.
Transition 2
  • 00m 56s
  • 18m 23s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 05m 56s  min/mile

Could have pushed a little more early on I think. And the mile 3 marker was a little early, but it was a nice course and nice race! Maybe my fastest 5K in a tri ever!
Post race
Warm down:

I stretched about 2 hours after the race really well while waiting for Sarah and Henry to get back from Perkins.

Event comments:

Nice race! I'd do this again. Everything was well-run, and the course was nice!
