Rev3 Wisconsin - Half Rev - Triathlon

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Dells, Wisconsin
United States
88F / 31C
Total Time = 7h 09m
Overall Rank = 197/250
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 9/15
Event warmup:

Putting on my wetsuit feels like a warm-up. It was already getting hot and sticky at 7am!
  • 41m 45s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 59s / 100 yards

The water was dead calm and the time trail start made for a very relaxing swim. There was very little contact. The return buoys were pretty close to the out buoys so I did get a little off course for a bit. I should have gone with my sleeveless suit as it was warm enough. My shoulders still tired in the full suit. I was a bit congested due to allergies so not the greatest swim but not bad either. The run up the hill from the lake was included in the swim time which I walked.
Transition 1
  • 06m 32s

I had a lot of trouble getting my suit off. The air was really sticky and that suit didn't want to come off my feet.
  • 3h 36m
  • 56 miles
  • 15.56 mile/hr

Who knew the Midwest had so many hills. There was a lot of sizable climbs on the course. I also found the descents to be a bit tricky so I couldn't really get the full benefit. I also need to spend more training time in aero as my core wasn't up to the full 56 miles.
Transition 2
  • 02m 26s

I should have reapplied sun screen! Now I have sunburn tatoos of my age and race number
  • 2h 41m
  • 13.1 miles
  • 12m 17s  min/mile

It was sooooo hot on this run. My body shut down right from the start. I don't do well in heat and this course offered no relief from the sun. I ran every flat and down hill but had to walk the ascents.
Post race
Warm down:

I was overheated and badly sunburned. My body temp didn't normalize until late that night. Even drinking at every aid station I was severly dehydrated.

Event comments:

Rev 3 always does a great job and this was no exception. Its a hard course and the weather made it even tougher. It was a good wake-up call for me as I'm sure IM Boulder won't be any easier on the weather front. More heat training is in my future! I'm also going to work on doing a better job of sun screen application!

We interview Rev3 race director Eric Opdyke. Eric is going to bravely face the series of questions we’ll be asking several race directors this year.
