Versailles, Kentucky

60F / 16C
Total Time = 1h 15m 45s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 2/
Pre-race routine:

wake up. pack stuff, forget race number belt and sunglasses, drive to race site.
Event warmup:

stand around.
  • 06m 41s
  • 400 yards
  • 01m 40s / 100 yards

this was a great swim for me, since i've not been in the water in about a month or so.
What would you do differently?:

register earlier, so i'm not crawling over people doing the breast and back stroke.
Transition 1
  • 00m
What would you do differently?:

need to practice more transitions, since i've had so long off, i could tell this was a little rusty. also, i would remember my number belt, so i wouldn't have spent about 1 minute trying to work the stinkin safety pins.
  • 42m 42s
  • 14 miles
  • 19.67 mile/hr

for the most part, this was a well-controlled course. there were a couple of spots that needed more traffic control, and could have used more marking off of the appropriate route. Overall, though, this was a great course to ride. i think i may have to add this to my training repertoire.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 24m 18s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 49s  min/mile

it's a lot more difficult to run off road. this weaved up and down hills, and through the forest. it was so humid back there, mostly because of the recent storms. i was hurting on this part, i think predominantly from this.
Post race
Warm down:

stopped moving.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

early season, class c race, didn't have any goals going into it, other than to not get injured.

Event comments:

this was a non-chip timed event, so i don't know how i ranked in each of my splits, but that's cool. this was a class c race anyway. i was talked into this swim by one of the gyn-onc fellows i'm friends with. he is getting read to do the florida half IM in about a month, but thought this would be a fun little race, so he talked me into it.
