Tri-California Events
70F / 21C
Total Time = 1h 42m 6s
Overall Rank = 147/204
Age Group = M35-39
Age Group Rank = 14/18
  • 11m 7s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 32s / 100 yards

I held myself back and did more breast stroke than originally planned. Being my first event I was more concerned with finishing.
What would you do differently?:

Spend more time doing crawl instead of breast stroke.
Transition 1
  • 03m 48s

Took my time drying off a bit and changing from rash guard into t-shirt. Had a brief moment of confusion with my socks thinking they were on upside down.
What would you do differently?:

Not dry off as much, wear a tri-suit/top so I don't have to change shirts. Bring socks with marked heels so I don't think they are backwards!
  • 52m 38s
  • 12.4 miles
  • 14.14 mile/hr

Settled in for a comfortable ride, didn't push myself too hard. Riding a hybrid bike I was passed frequently by those on tri/road bikes. Had a fun little race with another rider on a hybrid, passing each other as we alternated up and down hills.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder on the start/finish hill now that I know them better. Upgrading to a road bike will speed up my bike time dramatically.
Transition 2
  • 01m 53s

Had a slight cramp in my right calf as I twisted my foot out of my pedals. When I put my racing belt (with run number) on I tried to buckle it behind my back catching my shirt a few times.
What would you do differently?:

Stretch legs a bit on the bike leading up to T2. Buckle race belt in front then turn it around.
  • 32m 40s
  • 3 miles
  • 10m 53s  min/mile

The steep hill forced me to walk as I have not trained running on hills much at all. I was able to stride up the hill with long strides so I kept a reasonable pace.
What would you do differently?:

Train on hills! Push myself a bit more on the flats.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretching my legs followed by fruit and pasta!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Holding myself back on my first event.

Event comments:

Excellent event for my first Tri. It wasn't too crowded so I was able to relax and just enjoy the event.
