Bribie Triathlon Series 2013-2014 Race 4 - Triathlon

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Brisbane, Queensland
28C / 82F
Total Time = 1h 32m 6s
Overall Rank = 406/439
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 19/25
Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 3:30, had the usual black coffee. In the car and away by 4.06, ate a small tub of raisins, dates, and nuts on the way. Arrived at 5:30, got set up then had a rest in the car.
Event warmup:

Walk up to start line. Hang around chatting
  • 14m 40s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 58s / 100 meters

Caught by the current and first pushed in to shore, then overshot at the last buoy. Felt quite strong and confident despite being punched in the head a few times. Goggles stayed on and leak-free, and no jellies!
What would you do differently?:

Sight more often- eg every 2nd breath
Transition 1
  • 00m

Time 3:34 (included in swim and bike times) Ran out fine but shoes sagged (rubber bands too stretchy and old) and had confidence issues trying to get on and not take out another cyclist at the mount line.
What would you do differently?:

Use fresh rubber bands, bought not recycled. Run a little further away from the mount line to give some more space. More practice getting feet in and out of shoes.
  • 46m 9s
  • 20 kms
  • 26.00 km/hr

Pushed the bike hard, enjoyed it. Had a gel at 10km
What would you do differently?:

More bike training, more long brick training
Transition 2
  • 01m 4s

T2 went quite well
  • 31m 16s
  • 5 kms
  • 06m 15s  min/km

Felt very slow with all the later (faster) waves zooming past me and my legs like lead. Managed to push myself to keep running, however slow, and not walk. Started to feel better around the 3km mark and settled into the stride. Took a few mouthfuls of water at each table and tipped the rest of the cup over me
What would you do differently?:

Do more training! Esp bricks.
Post race
Warm down:

a few cups of enduro, fruit, then hang around chatting. Swisse recovery bar and a sausage sarnie

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training esp bike and run strength. Overall fairly happy with result considering it's 9 weeks after I pulled my calf and sidelined myself
