Pretty easy swim. Tried to save some for the bike.
Transition 1
  • 02m 23s

Not too bad. Not great. Wasn't crowded in my area so I got lucky.
What would you do differently?:

Was pleased with this transition
  • 41m 28s
  • 13.67 miles
  • 19.78 mile/hr

I'm a terrible biker. I need to change this. It kills my time.
What would you do differently?:

Work more on biking.
Transition 2
  • 02m 1s

Not too good here. Arrived with a pack. Got flustered putting on running shoes.
What would you do differently?:

Stay patient
  • 23m 15s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 29s  min/mile

At the start of mile 2 I realized I had too much left in the tank. The bike usually caches me out. In this case I didn't cycle well and then could have ran harder.
What would you do differently?:

Come out of the shoot faster on the run.

Event comments:

Still fun going to the Chicago Triathlon. It's crowded and it's hot. But it's a fun race.

I'm doing the 22 week sprint tri program and the 2 mile bike ride it starts with is not very challenging. I see this as a opportunity to train the right way and challenge myself. Any ideas?

This past spring I realized a few of us were heading in the wrong direction physically. We were getting together for poker games and kids’ birthdays, but that was it.

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.

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.

Should I have time goals for the first sprint? Should I just finish the race at a reasonable pace? I'm not sure how to approach this.
