Total Time = 1h 39m 32s
Overall Rank = 139/166
Age Group = Clydesdale
Age Group Rank = 4/6
Pre-race routine:

Stayed locally overnight. My first tri - so nothing really...
  • 17m 19s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 19s / 100 meters

Terrible swim! Thought that I would find it ok as I'm generally an ok swimmer - but had a nightmare. Panicked, couldn't breathe, couldn't keep crawl going - was doing breaststroke within 100m. My entire game plan went out the window in less than a minute.
What would you do differently?:

I need some coaching and lots of practice..!!
Transition 1
  • 02m 36s

T1 was very slow. Didn't think that putting socks on would take so long (wet feet does that apparently). Everything else just seemed to drag on.
What would you do differently?:

Think a bit more on the transition and practice.
  • 49m 53s
  • 15 miles
  • 18.07 mile/hr

Was quite happy with the bike considering. No clip ins, lost the chain on the last hill - so that slowed me a little. Everything else was as good as I could expect.
What would you do differently?:

Work harder on the hills. Think about getting clip-ins and aerobars.
Transition 2
  • 00m 41s

Got the wobbles a little when coming off the bike. Cycled in my running shoes, so just dropped off the bike and carried on.
What would you do differently?:

  • 29m 4s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 54s  min/km

My run was bad. Couldn't keep it going - ended up walking up the hills and running down them. I seriously have to question the time... should have been more.
What would you do differently?:

Better training, use HRM.
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing serious, just had some fruit, drinks and snacks...

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Practice, experience and training.

Event comments:

My first race, so it has to be the best! It was a good experience, whetted my appetite to do another. My goal was really just to complete it, so mission accomplished I guess.

The boat was being tossed around. Someone noted that there were whitecaps on the waves. Another guy said, “This is going to be challenging.” I began to wonder what he meant by 'challenging'.

I quickly browsed an article in Men's Health that talked about doing a triathlon, and how it wasn't really that hard. With a "tsk!" I quickly turned the page while thinking, "Yeah, right!"

All you have to do is say you’re a triathlete and you intimidate the whole world. No matter how much you bench press or what you lift or how many squats you can do.
