Smithfield, North Carolina
United States
FS Series
80F / 27C
Total Time = 1h 24m 51s
Overall Rank = 183/321
Age Group = 50-54
Age Group Rank = 10/16
Pre-race routine:

Mingled with the Tri-Warriors.
Event warmup:

  • 05m 38s
  • 250 yards
  • 02m 15s / 100 yards

Good swim. I was running out of steam because I haven't swam in months. I did try freestyle a little more than I probably should have.
What would you do differently?:

Work on kick turns. Swim more often.
Transition 1
  • 00m 54s

Overall, a great T1. I wanted to break 1m and I did that. I had a little issue getting my feet into my shoes and I also pulled one strap completely through the loop.
What would you do differently?:

Strap my shoe bands onto the bike more securely. Although they did the job, I felt like they were the culprits in getting my feet into the shoes, aside from pulling one strap through. Otherwise, outstanding!

  • 42m 13s
  • 14 miles
  • 19.90 mile/hr

Need to push harder on some longer rides. Overall, I felt the bike went well. I missed the final dismount because it was immediately following a right hand turn. I should have been paying more attention. Cost me about 10s to turn around and get over there. Dismount came up much faster than I anticipated.
What would you do differently?:

Study the map more to see the dismount. I didn't look at it on race day which is something I usually do.
Transition 2
  • 01m 4s

I should have broken a minute in T2. I am not sure what I did wrong. I think it was perhaps when I racked the bike. I had a little issue getting the cockpit over the bar and holding my helmet at the same time......
What would you do differently?:

Do the same. I don't know that I could have improved anything. It just didn't click on time. Overall great job!

  • 35m 1s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 17s  min/mile

Poor run @ 11.5m/mi. Definitely need to concentrate on running more. Incorporate speed training, fartleks, and hills into my training.
What would you do differently?:

I don't feel that I burnt my legs on the bike. I feel that I need to concentrate more on running. Need to adjust my IM training to support more running to build stamina following a hard bike.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked it out for a while. Did some lite stretching. Drank water and Gatorade and ate two Chick filete wraps.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training.

Event comments:

Will race again next year. Good beginner race and also training race.

Are you a mindless eater? Do you eat too much at meals? Or do you graze throughout the day? Start getting rid of those bad habits today.

“Too bad there’s not anything like this for triathletes.” There are a million books and articles on how to train. One of the toughest parts of triathlon training is how to fit them into everyday life.
