View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Chatham, Ontario
YMCA of Chatham-Kent
Total Time = 1h 18m 46s
Overall Rank = 40/120
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 7/10
Pre-race routine:

Good drive down the 401, everything went smoothly. Odd set up in the transition area as people just put their bikes where the wanted, so some had really good spots and others not. Asked about it and they said they were trying. Thats all that really counts
Event warmup:

Didn't do much other than swim out to start.
  • 17m 47s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 22s / 100 meters

There is no way this was 750m. It would be my slowest swim by almost 3 minutes if it was. Heard many people say the same thing and also heard they had issues with the measurements prior years.
Transition 1
  • 02m 23s

Slow getting going for some reason. Long transition area
  • 36m 54s
  • 18.8 kms
  • 30.57 km/hr
Transition 2
  • 00m

T2 time was included in the bike segment
  • 24m 5s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 49s  min/km

Took a bit to get going. Frozen from seat, so hips were tight
Post race
Warm down:

Food and water was a long way from finish line. Hot dog or water

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Bicycle seat is still an issue

Event comments:

Race was late due to tree branch falling on course. Having never been there, had to ask for instructions inside of park as to where to go. Upon arrival, seemed like they were rushing around and long wait line even though I was pre registered
