Berwyn, Pennsylvania
United States
YMCA of the Upper Main Line
82F / 28C
Total Time = 1h 25m 31s
Overall Rank = 146/269
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 7/16
Event warmup:

Modified TNT Dynamic Warm-up
  • 11m 43s
  • 492 yards
  • 35m 43s / 1500 yards

I did pretty well. I didn't have anyone sharing my lane and I had to go in a slower heat, so I didn't push myself as hard as I probably could have. I think I can improve my time a little.
Transition 1
  • 05m 2s

I just need more hours of experience on my bike and transitioning onto my bike. I think I need different bike shoes so I am not "clopping" to the bike starting line.
  • 38m 19s
  • 10 miles
  • 15.66 mile/hr

I still don't have enough balance, so I had to stop for each water break (3 breaks total). Overall they didn't really affect my time at all. Again, once I get more comfortable biking, this will improve dramatically.
Transition 2
  • 02m 41s

Riding with on top of shoes? Jumping off moving bike? Not a chance. Still have a ways to go before I am comfortable with that.
  • 27m 48s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 56s  min/mile

I didn't hydrate enough during my transition and the 1 water stop on the 5k was not enough. I wish I had my hydration belt or had consumed a little more fluid in transition...maybe I needed to drink more during my bike leg.

Warm down:

P90X post work-out stretches

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Leg strength still lacking, not comfortable enough on road bike still

Event comments:

This is an awesome event! It's definitely a must for first-timers and great as a pre-Tri season warm-up to get focused. I look forward to doing this event every year.
