View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Perth, Western Australia
30C / 86F
Total Time = 1h 45m 23s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group =
Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Got up fed sorted the dogs, had some breakfast and set off at about 6:40. Race start wasn't until 8:30 so I had plenty of time
Event warmup:

  • 13m 11s
  • 600 meters
  • 02m 12s / 100 meters

The first lap was easier than the second, because on the second lap the girls doing the next distance down are starting to get into the pool too. This leaves very little room to spread out. Also at present my swim fitness sucks a bit.
What would you do differently?:

Train more
Transition 1
  • 03m 46s

The run from the pool to transition is probably 200m and a good half of it is on chip seal, so not good on bare feet. Happy with this took my time a little just to keep my heart rate down a bit. Took a little while to find my bike but not too bad.
What would you do differently?:

Toughen the feet up somehow
  • 42m 20s
  • 18 kms
  • 25.51 km/hr

Really happy with the average speed on this ride. By lap 4 it was getting really crowded, especially at the turn around point. By lap 5 & 6 there was a bit of a line up to get around.
Transition 2
  • 02m 17s

Uneventful. Run in change shoes and put on hat head out again. Lost my spot a bit and it took a few seconds to find it.
  • 43m 47s
  • 6 kms
  • 07m 18s  min/km

By the time I started the run it had started to get fairly warm and there was very little shade on the course.

I found it really hard to get into a rhythm and I probably walked half of the run.
Post race
Warm down:

Grabbed a cup of water. Transition was open so picked up my stuff, loaded the car and headed home.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of consistent training.

So proud of you, Stacey!!  You did great, especially on the bike.  Heat and no shade sucks so I wouldn't get too down on yourself for walking--sounds like it got pretty beastly out there.  Beating your goal time by *15 min.* is fantastic!!  Way to go!!!

Chipseal, grrr!  That's the devil's creation, I tell ya.  Nice job on the bike, and the swim sounds like there was congestion which is no fault of yours.  Congrats on whupping your goal time!
