Hurley, New York

New York Triathlon
Total Time = 1h 11m 38s
Overall Rank = 8/46
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 2/3
Pre-race routine:

Wow, a LOT of people didn't show up because of the weather. Can't say I really blame them.
  • 13m 45s
  • 2.1 miles
  • 06m 33s  min/mile

Some fast runners that showed up this year, that's for sure. Every time I do a du I always have to repeat in my head "let the runners'll pass them on the bike."

Mile 1: 6:17.
Mile 2: 6:52
Mile .1: 6:35
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, thought I did quite well.
Transition 1
  • 00m 40s

Had to borrow the bike because Buzz cracked. So I didn't want to do a flying mount on this thing. Wasn't familiar with it since I had just picked it up the day before.

Ran with shoes on
  • 42m 36s
  • 14 miles
  • 19.72 mile/hr

  • ..except all the runners were cyclists too! Crazy fast people there today.

  • Haven't ridden a road bike in 2+ years so that was a bit different. The headwind was just incredible turning onto Hurley Hill Rd. Was averaging 26mph until that point. Once on that road had a hard time maintaining 16. Drained me pretty good leading into Dug Hill Rd.

    Dug Hill Rd is the devil. Straight up and just nonstop. I'm sure it would have been much easier if I had Buzz. I couldn't stand and climb as the frame was rubbing the wheels under such torque and I also didn't have my lowest gear as it would shift in then shift out immediately.
    Transition 2
    • 00m 27s

    No flying dismount, wasn't comfortable doing it on a bike I wasn't familiar with.
    • 14m 8s
    • 2.1 miles
    • 06m 44s  min/mile

    I'll admit that at when I saw how far the guy in front of me was and how far the guy behind me was at the turnaround I let off a little bit.

    Too far ahead and too far back that no one was catching anyone.

    Performance: Good
    Course: First mile is the easiest of the two. Downhill, then flat, then a little bit of climbing. The second mile is evil. The hill you cam down you go back up. It's short but brutal.

    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).

    Is it possible for loners to work in a small group and still have plenty of time on their own? Training in small groups can give many benefits.

    My first duathlon was a success. I had so many fears before the race but none of those fears happened. And when it was all over, I felt I had accomplished something big.

    This program should be used for an athlete who is new to duathlon and their goal is to complete a sprint duathlon without difficulty. The schedule consists of 3 workouts per week in each sport.

    This program should be used for an athlete who is an experienced duathlete and their goal is to complete a medium distance duathlon without difficulty.

    Don’t forget this is an incredibly big year for sport with the Olympics back in Athens where the modern Olympics started, and especially triathlon to make its second appearance.

    "I was wondering if this is a sensible approach? Should I get "better" on short distance and then move to something longer or do what I want if I feel I can do it whatever the time?"

    Bricks refer to training on two disciplines during the same workout.
