Biddeford Pool, Maine
United States
Kennebunk Beach Triathlon Club
61F / 16C
Total Time = 1h 26m 24s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = 50-54
Age Group Rank = 12/19
Pre-race routine:

Arrived early, ate breakfast.
Event warmup:

went for a short swim which turned out to be a good move given the water temperature
  • 10m 36s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 25s / 100 yards

My best swim despite the cold temperature. I was surprised when I got to transition and realized I was one of the first few in my wave to get out of the water
What would you do differently?:

Start to the inside more.
Transition 1
  • 02m 12s

I was quite dizzy in transition, not sure why but it did affect my time
What would you do differently?:

  • 44m 58s
  • 14.85 miles
  • 19.81 mile/hr

Lost my new aero bottle in the first mile and turned around to retrieve it. Couldn't get it back in the mount as I watched 8 guys go past me. Lesson learned...don't use new stuff without testing it first!
What would you do differently?:

Don't use new equipment without testing it first
Transition 2
  • 01m 8s

good transition for me.
  • 27m 30s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 52s  min/mile

Wasn't my best run. I need to get into my groove earlier and try to push myself to run faster over the entire distance.
What would you do differently?:

Train more
Post race
Warm down:

stretch, walk

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not having anything to drink on the bike didn't help.

Event comments:

I loved the challenge of the ocean swim. I will be back.

At mile ten I heard a noise like I had gotten paper in my spokes or something. I looked but saw nothing but a few seconds later my rear tire blows out.

Are these races too close together to give me any sort of recovery? Will I be spent and unhappy racing back to back weekends and then again two weeks after that?

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

The challenge? The accomplishment? I want to do this because it is an opportunity to live life. The event is an indoor sprint triathlon. I get to experience the challenge on a safer scale.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

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.

Since I didn't have much time and since it's a super sprint, am I OK just go to at the training relatively hard through Thursday or even Friday?
