Lawrence, Massachusetts

Merrimack Valley YMCA
50F / 10C
Total Time = 1h 07m 11s
Overall Rank = 50/130
Age Group = 35-40
Age Group Rank = 3/7
Pre-race routine:

Got up at 0400...two hour drive. Got there 1 hour early. Had plenty of time to get everytying ready and set up transition.
Event warmup:

Swam 100 easy.
  • 05m 21s
  • 250 yards
  • 02m 08s / 100 yards

Had good swim. I didn't have the confidence to start in the right spot in line. I should have started with the 5 min group, instead I started with 6:30. Had to pass a few people, and even ended up walking in the shallow end to get around two other swimmers.
What would you do differently?:

Start in the right spot, and swim a little harder.
Transition 1
  • 02m 1s

No problems with T-1
  • 34m 29s
  • 10 miles
  • 17.40 mile/hr

The bike kind of did me in. The course was very rough, lots of turns, and soaked.
What would you do differently?:

Train more on the bike
Transition 2
  • 01m 8s

It was kind of a suprise going from bike to run. The legs are little rubbery and my right ankle hurt a lot.
  • 24m 14s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 05s  min/mile

After the ankle and legs got used to running, it wasn't too bad. I wished it was a little be longer.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough training on the bike. I'm happy with the swim and run.

Event comments:

Great first time race. Well organized, and lots of volunteers.
