Washington, North Carolina
United States
FS Series
80F / 27C
Total Time = 2h 36m 53s
Overall Rank = 22/66
Age Group = 45-49
Age Group Rank = 6/12
Pre-race routine:

set up transition, chatted with friends
Event warmup:

dynamic stretching
  • 33m 35s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 14s / 100 meters

swim was putrid. 32 high at water's edge. should have been closer to 29 or so. yesterday i thought the course was long and some others said that. however today my shoulders are not even sore (nor upper arms). that tells me i didn't go hard enough. i thought i was very efficient in my stroke and thought i was pulling water well. apparently not
What would you do differently?:

swim harder
Transition 1
  • 01m 35s

  • 1h 12m 14s
  • 24 miles
  • 19.94 mile/hr

good ride. auto fill says 26 but the shirt says 24 so we will go with the shirt. that pace makes much more sense for how i felt. overall a good ride for me
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 00m 37s

again, decent.
What would you do differently?:

  • 48m 51s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 07m 53s  min/mile

decent run. fell off the last quarter of the run. was hoping for 45
What would you do differently?:

keep training with speed work. not sure what would have made a difference yesterday otherwise
Post race
Warm down:

waited for Wilson to finish. stretched a little and ate some food. had a beer :)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

dismal effort on swim and bike fitness. the bike fitness is coming along better, but still needs a lot of work

Event comments:

enjoyed this race. it is in my hometown, so that is nice. nice food and stuff afterwards. FS Series does a good job putting these races on

I looked at the swim buoys and start thinking, "Man! How am I ever going to swim that? That looks like a very long distance from the bridge. I have never done it in one go." There's no turning back.

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).

I signed up for a Sprint in July, an Olympic distance in September, and the Alcatraz tri in October. If I'm going to do it, I'm going to do it all the way.
