Age Group = moutain bike
Age Group Rank = 2/15
Pre-race routine:

woke up at 4a, coffee pb & j sandwich and banna
Event warmup:

light jog and dynamic stretching, swam a couple hundred yards prior to my wave
  • 12m 35s
  • 880 yards
  • 01m 26s / 100 yards

got great start thru the surf line, hit the first buoy and got settled into a very comfortable pace. was at the last buoy before we knew it.
What would you do differently?:

Could have definitely pushed a bit harder.
Transition 1
  • 02m 45s

actually tipped over for a second in the shoot out of transition. it was very narrow and crowded. only lost a few seconds
What would you do differently?:

more body glide on legs
  • 58m 1s
  • 18 miles
  • 18.62 mile/hr

really pushed the bike leg. the hills were not too bad and kept my speed up pretty good. hardest part was the last mile in parking lot against the wind and dealing with traffic. was averaging >19 prior to that.
What would you do differently?:

nothing. I thought it was a very good ride.
Transition 2
  • 01m 53s

almost ran past my rack but teammate caught me
What would you do differently?:

not much
  • 30m 24s
  • 4 miles
  • 07m 36s  min/mile

pretty good run but was never able to really turn on the speed in middle portion. maybe not enough nutrition. did finish strong for last mile. probably <7 min pace
What would you do differently?:

try to push thru miles 2 and 3 a bit harder
Post race
Warm down:

light jog, stretching and nutrition

What limited your ability to perform faster:

maybe a bit more rest the night before and more nutrition.

Event comments:

this is a great race and the volunteers were really out in force. event was well organized and lots of fun. cannot waiting until next year

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).

Since your “A” race is your marathon, which you stated in your question, this should be your main focus. I encourage you to taper a bit for the sprint distance triathlon.

Keep in mind that the taper period is as important to your body as all of the long hours you’ve put in the pool, on the bike and on the road. It is meant to help you rest, recover and rejuvenate.

I’m a 240lb man, and I run relatively long distances. How would you recommend training for marathon and IM distances as heavy as I am?
