  • 10m
  • 300 meters
  • 03m 20s / 100 meters

The swimmnig segment was the most difficult. Reality has kept me from training these last two weeks and the pool is where that really hurt. Swimming the full 50 meters - not pretty.
What would you do differently?:

Train more - pure and simple.
Transition 1
  • 02m 31s

The decision not to wear socks was the correct one. It saved lots of time.
What would you do differently?:

Do a better job of drying my feet. Duh!
  • 43m 3s
  • 12 miles
  • 16.72 mile/hr

I was disappointed with my results with the bike. I thought I'd do better with an average over 17 mph.
What would you do differently?:

Ride more. I also think that using the trainer is good but it doesn't mimic the strains of the road
Transition 2
  • 02m 34s
  • 26m 47s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 38s  min/mile

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The swim portion is my weakest event. I need to really work on that. Being sick last the last two weeks didn't help. I stopped training. I know that hurt the swim and I didn't get many runs in.

You may not have been happy with the swim, but definitely recovered for the run! Nice job!

Great job, I was in your group, # 399. 9th Pl. That was a fun race, I actually hadn't been swimming and swam well, my run was a bit slower then I hoped for. Oh well, I had a great time. They put on good races.

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.

I can't run a seven-minute mile anymore, but that doesn't take away from the joy of finishing
