Extreme Indoor - TriathlonWinter

View Member's Race Log
Chicago, Illinois
United States
Total Time = 1h 30m
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = Under 30
Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Took a cab down to Gold Coast. Had one Snickers marathon bar and some Accelaride (sp). Filled water bottle with half water/g-aid.
Event warmup:

A little stretching to loosen up the shoulders
  • 20m
  • 1375 yards
  • 01m 27s / 100 yards

Felt good considering the water temp. Kept my 100 splits under 1:30 so I was happy about that. I didn't go out too hard, the guy I was swimming next is a member of the Chi Tri club and I knew he was a better swimmer. He covered 1500 yds to my 1375.
What would you do differently?:

Hard to say. Lost some of my focus for awhile.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 40m
  • 14.62 miles
  • 21.93 mile/hr
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 30m
  • 3.66 miles
  • 08m 12s  min/mile

This was an area of disapointment. I had to run back to the locker room to get my new watch/hr monitor. When I got back it was time to run, I couldn't get my watch to the right setting in time and my HR monitor wasn't picking up a signal. So I had no idea how fast I was going and how much time I had left. Really wish I could have gotten the watch to work, very tough running a pace when you don't know how much time is left.
What would you do differently?:

Learn to use your HR mont/watch
Post race
Warm down:

Shower, walking one lap.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Warm water
No watch

great job!
If the water was warm it was probably around 85 (not 75) especially if you were at an indoor rec pool.

Way to go!!!!  The more I read about you folks doing these indoor tris, the more I think I want to do one next winter.  Sounds like a great way to satisfy the tri bug when the outside water is too cold to swim in.
