Manahawkin Lake Park III, New Jersey

DQ Tri
75F / 24C
Total Time = 1h 15m 9s
Overall Rank = 92/151
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 1/4
Pre-race routine:

Cinnamon pop-tart and coffee
Event warmup:

Warm up for the swim became extremely embarrassing, as I was caught out in my "own little world" and had to hide behind the lifeguard boat so the race could start. Luckily I was in Wave 3... gah.
  • 09m 28s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 09s / 100 yards

Holy hell - I was so happy to get out of that water!
What would you do differently?:

Um, pay attention and RELAX.
Transition 1
  • 02m 32s

First race ever clipping in - not yet ready for flying mounts! But that will come soon. Goal was to stay calm and not compound issues from swim.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing - I was very happy that I regained by composure and competitive spirit so quickly after such an abysmal swim.
  • 33m 28s
  • 11 miles
  • 19.67 mile/hr

Very very pleased with bike. Felt that I gave all I had and didn't fall off in transition - WIN!
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 2s

Didn't fall down switching to running shoes. Nice!
What would you do differently?:

  • 28m 40s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 11s  min/mile

Did the triathlon shuffle. Definitely felt tired with very little in the tank. But once I figured out the race was a 5K (duh!) and that I was half way through I found a little push.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I felt a little tired this past week. Immediately following race I got a sore throat which then turned into a cold. There has been a LOT of work/personal stressors as well.

Event comments:

The awards were mixed up - the top 2 girls in my AG pulled out to take 2nd and 3rd overall females but that was not posted until the next day so we all took home awards one rung lower than we should have.

But on the UP side I get a WIN in my Age Group!!!!

After doing duathlons for the last couple of years, I decided to go for a triathlon. Starting with an Olympic-distance race perhaps wasn't wise, but it was fun (of a sort).

Is it possible for loners to work in a small group and still have plenty of time on their own? Training in small groups can give many benefits.

This program should be used for an athlete who is new to duathlon and their goal is to complete a sprint duathlon without difficulty. The schedule consists of 3 workouts per week in each sport.

Don’t forget this is an incredibly big year for sport with the Olympics back in Athens where the modern Olympics started, and especially triathlon to make its second appearance.

"I was wondering if this is a sensible approach? Should I get "better" on short distance and then move to something longer or do what I want if I feel I can do it whatever the time?"

Bricks refer to training on two disciplines during the same workout.
