Race Day Events
70F / 21C
Total Time = 1h 14m 54s
Overall Rank = 56/645
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 15/51
Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 4 and had my usual breakfast of toast with jam and coffee.
Event warmup:

Got to the site a bit late so I had about 10 min in the water to get acclimated to it. Last time in water was September last year. Overall felt pretty good.
  • 08m 42s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 59s / 100 yards

I am a poor swimmer. I don't do anything about it so I don't get better. Swim was average for me.
What would you do differently?:

I NEED to get in masters swim program or individual classes this fall/winter.
Transition 1
  • 01m 40s

Good T1 for me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really
  • 41m 10s
  • 16 miles
  • 23.32 mile/hr

I wanted more. I should get 25 MPH on this course no problem. I will next time.
What would you do differently?:

Push the pace more. There aren't any "Hills" but where there are rollers I need to push harder.
Transition 2
  • 00m 53s

I went to the wrong rack. Missed it by one.
What would you do differently?:

Not miss my rack. I was concentrating on a tree that was at the end of my rack but this woman was walking with her bike and not looking where she was going and I had to stop and holler at her then I was all thrown off.
  • 22m 31s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 14s  min/mile

I didn't push hard enough.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster. I can do 6:30's for a 5k so breaking 7 min for a tri should be no problem. Next time.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched and chilled with Jennie and the kids.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Mentally I think I was afraid of pushing too hard in the swim or bike. If I can break thru that barrier I know I can improve. I did feel great after the race so I stayed well within my abilities so that is a plus. I had a good day and overall nothing really went wrong.

Event comments:

Registration was waaay behind and we had to stand in line for 15 minutes. The race was delayed by 10 min. It wa the promoters first time doing Lake Mills so I am willing to give them a pass. Hopefully they will improve. I think they will. All other aspects of the event were great. Awesome support and volunteers.
