Swim was pretty doof took a few seconds to get my air after a good kick. I think this may have been a little short but it was Wet suit
What would you do differently?:

WEt suit got stuck on my shoulder.... That is a first. Helmet got stuck clasped on my bike, also a first.

Lost the front group that I swam with in T1. Embarrassing. Lost 1 min. Horrible
  • 42m 44s
  • 16.1 miles
  • 22.61 mile/hr

Had computer issues and lost ~15 seconds fixing it on a downhill. Probably not too much overall. Avg 215 wanter to avg 230-240. Just need to focus more in the future
What would you do differently?:

remember to get bike computer taken care and did not hold the watts I wanted to so I would focus better
Transition 2
  • 01m

Not great had a small issues getting shoes on
What would you do differently?:

Run a little faster in transition
  • 20m 43s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 06m 41s  min/mile

Was very happy with the run. I have basically run 8 min miles for a long time with little speed work so I had no idea what to expect. Passed my AG at mile 1 and kept him at bay.
What would you do differently?:

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.
