Delmar, New York
United States
YMCA of Bethlehem and Town of Bethlehem
50F / 10C
Total Time = 54m 27s
Overall Rank = 9/145
Age Group = M20-29
Age Group Rank = 3/15
Pre-race routine:

Pancake breakfast, then rode down to the park to check in and set up for the race.
Event warmup:

Easy spin on the bike to the venue, then ran a warm up mile a few minutes before the start.
  • 12m 50s
  • 2 miles
  • 06m 25s  min/mile

Started off a bit fast, but was able to settle and hold a pretty strong pace
What would you do differently?:

Not go out so hot (6:18 for the first mile)
Transition 1
  • 01m 10s

Pretty solid transition, had a little trouble clipping my helmet with the gloves on, otherwise no issues
  • 26m 8s
  • 10 miles
  • 22.96 mile/hr

Knowing the roads well definitely helped me get into an aggressive mindset and I put down a hard pace and held it throughout the ride.
What would you do differently?:

Not much
Transition 2
  • 00m 37s

Smooth T2
What would you do differently?:

  • 13m 42s
  • 2 miles
  • 06m 51s  min/mile

Definitely had a harder time with this run, but based on my place no more so than others. Managed to keep the pressure on and hold off a guy about 15-20 seconds behind me most of the time.
What would you do differently?:

My fast start probably caught up to me a bit here, but nothing too bad.
Post race
Warm down:

Cheered on others, stretched a bit

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not too worried about this, just felt good to get out and race for the first time this season.

Event comments:

Very fun local race, well organized by ARE. Will likely do this one again in the future.

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.

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?"
