Pre-race routine:

Ate 1/2 Clif Bar with coffee, Drove 1 hr 45 min to race,Picked up packet, Put on race number, Put bike and helmet on rack, then shivered in the freezing rain until race start.
Event warmup:

  • 16m 35s
  • 1.8 miles
  • 09m 13s  min/mile

Really felt good despite the freezing rain and 40 degree temp. My legs felt great.
What would you do differently?:

Well, I could always run faster.
Transition 1
  • 00m 42s

Time was good. We had to run up a short hill out of the transition area to get to a flat spot to get on the bike, that was not good.
What would you do differently?:

I did okay I thought.
  • 42m 32s
  • 10 miles
  • 14.11 mile/hr

The headwind in conjuntion with the freezing rain really made this one of the hardest bikes I have ever done.
What would you do differently?:

Practice biking more with Headwinds.
Transition 2
  • 00m 49s

Good time.
  • 19m 6s
  • 2 miles
  • 09m 33s  min/mile

Feet felt numb after bike, but I did okay once the feeling started coming back. I felt pretty good. The course was REALLY Muddy around the finish.
Post race
Warm down:

Hot Chocolate! Found a warm, dry spot and changed into some dry cloths!

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

I got 2nd place in my age group! yeah!! After all the racing in the cold, rain and mud, we had to have our van (along with many others) pulled out of the muddy field we had to park in. Needless to say we went straight home, took a hot shower and bundled up the rest of the day. :)
