Comments:

Have been running big volume last few months - but took no days off or reduction for this race. Felt really good, and while I finished with nothing left in the tank, I was able to eat brunch and go run 15km more afterwards. Not very stiff the next day either.
What would you do differently?:

Ran an even split race, with only about 4-5 sec variance except for last lap.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched properly this time, and then went in for the huge buffet/brunch they put on.


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Middle of marathon training cycle.

Event comments:

Again with the prizes and draws - 2 bikes, 1 trip for two anywhere Westjet flies, and 100s of $ of gift certs. Huge fancy brunch as well!

In February, I was given a very special gift: a gift certificate to buy a nice road bike. That's when I realized there was no turning back. I WAS doing this.

The XTERRA off-road triathlons consist of a lake swim, a mountain bike trail ride, and a trail run. I decided to try the AZ Xtreme Desert XTERRA Tri as my 1st off-road triathlon, and my 3rd tri ever.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.
