I started ahead of Marsha because I knew I was about 30 seconds faster. It gave me a nice clear swim. I didn't pass anyone and no one passed me.
What would you do differently?:

Good swim for me.

nothing...T2 has always been fast for me

I went out a little slow and got my legs quickly. Katie came up behind me so my goal was to stay ahead of her. She pushed me pretty good.
What would you do differently?:

This was the best I have run off the bike this year
Post race
Warm down:

grabbed some water and showered up

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I've done this race the last 4 years and this was the quickest by a minute

Event comments:

I was in 2nd place overall for the Grand Prix Series. I knew I needed a good race today. I stuck with a game plan today and it worked perfectly. I ended up getting 1st place AG today and 1st place Grand Master for the Grand Prix Series. It was great seeing familiar faces and talking to everyone since it is the last triathlon of the season.

Are these races too close together to give me any sort of recovery? Will I be spent and unhappy racing back to back weekends and then again two weeks after that?

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.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

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.
