Poznan Triathlon - Triathlon1/2 Ironman

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Poznan, Poznan
15C / 59F
Total Time = 4h 54m 2s
Overall Rank = 36/607
Age Group = 30-39
Age Group Rank = 17/264
Pre-race routine:

Nothing special, made mistake instead of staying in the hotel drove for 1h 30 minutes and was late for the transition, good set up etc...
Event warmup:

Not much warm up.
  • 37m 52s
  • 1900 meters
  • 01m 59s / 100 meters

The hardest swim I ever experienced. Over 600 people going in the same time. Have to get used to this kind of experience.
Transition 1
  • 02m 21s

So many people in the transition area, had to run with bike few meters longer.
  • 2h 34m 3s
  • 90 kms
  • 34.94 km/hr

Going really good for 70 km and then feel like I run out of steam. Well, I didn't train enough bike last 2 months before race, due to injury and other comitments.
What would you do differently?:

Don't make training mistakes 2 months before most important race of the season.
Transition 2
  • 02m 15s
  • 1h 37m 31s
  • 21 kms
  • 04m 39s  min/km

Hard run, fight all the way with myself and a wish to run faster. I think not enough training on the bike cost me few minutes on the run as well.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.
