Shubie Dooby Tri - Triathlon

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Dartmouth, Nova Scotia
20C / 68F
Total Time = 1h 25m 3s
Overall Rank = 20/116
Age Group = M3039
Age Group Rank = 8/22
Pre-race routine:

Got up, had breakfast, played with the kids for a bit. Hoped the rain would subside.
Event warmup:

Rode to the race site (about 5km), picked up my chip, did about 300m of easy swimming.
  • 14m 47s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 58s / 100 meters

Went out easy from the gun; couple of running steps into the water and then a shallow dive before settling in. I was good to the first buoy, feeling pretty strong and comfortable and then the lack of swimming kicked in. I could feel my form fall apart and I was able to hang on to feet for a couple of strokes before falling out of the draft. I just aimed to settle into a nice pace and stay long and strong throughout. After the turn buoy to head back to shore I was taking several waves to the face which was surprising since there was very little chop and it didn't seem to matter which side I was breathing on, I was taking on water. Swim until my hand touched the bottom, stood and jogged up the beach.
What would you do differently?:

Swim a little in training
Transition 1
  • 00m

Good transition
What would you do differently?:

  • 44m 25s
  • 20 kms
  • 27.02 km/hr

Not a bad ride but I was more cautious with wet pavement than I have been in the past; took most turns easy and just tried to stay safe for the most part. This is a challenging course with the hills and I just tried to stay comfortable to setup a decent run. Effort seemed a little low in many spots but I just didn't have the extra gear that I wanted. Tried to stay tucked in aero and make the best of it.
What would you do differently?:

More riding.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Solid transition
  • 25m 52s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 10s  min/km

Run started okay with out of transition but like the bike, I just had nothing behind this. I cranked up the pace a couple of times but there was no sustaining it so I settled in and did the best I could. Cruised the finish to cap an enjoyable day.
What would you do differently?:

Run more
Post race
Warm down:

Walked and then rode home.

Event comments:

I have always been an athlete, growing up playing team sports like basketball and soccer. I also ran in a couple of 10K races every year, so I had no reason to worry about running a 5K...right?

After I left the running store, I couldn't stop thinking about the sprint tri and how much of a challenge it would be for me. So instead of joining a gym, I started riding my bike and it felt great.

A product review of the Louis Garneau Tri Air Triathlon Shoe. After nearly two years of testing, see how this shoe performed. Currently being replaced by the Tri Air 2.

I couldn’t help but feel that the race had beaten me. Perhaps duathlons were more for me? No, I was more determined than ever to succeed. I was determined to get on top of my swimming.

This life of mine is not so different from yours. It has a multitude of similarities. I suffer from uncertainty, I get nervous at the thought of registering and when getting to the starting line.

I am not going to buy a tri-suit before my first tri - I want to make sure I am going to stick with this before I spend a lot of money on it so I want to figure out what will work best.

I couldn't believe that my splits kept getting lower! I started to run harder after I passed the "5 km" sign and picked a few people that I wanted to pass.
