Pre-race routine:

Got off work at 06:00 and came home. Ate some cereal and fruit with two cups of coffee. Stomach was a little bothersome.

Event warmup:

Left early to get in a 45 minute run before the race. About half way there I realized I forgot my bib. This is the second race in a row!!! Ran straight to the event and borrowed a phone to call my daughter. Did some speed drills waiting. She showed up just as the race started. Tada!

I used this for my LT test. Haven't done one in a while.
What would you do differently?:

If I was serious about the race it would have been a 15 minute warm up with strides.

Warm down:

Grabbed a bottle of water and jogged around the park.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Haven't trained for a all out 5K.

Event comments:

This was a good race. I hope they keep doing it. Lots of vendors and food trucks with a variety of stuff to choose from.

Overall: 0/
Performance: Good
I had a slightly faster time on my Garmin and I forgot to hit the stop button when I crossed the line for about 15-20 seconds. My time was 22:26. Minus the 15-20 seconds would have given me a 7:16 m/m pace. This is closer to the truth. I watched pace and averages through the entire race.
Course: Simple. Some long hills with not much elevation gain.
Keeping cool Good Drinking

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).

There was a long run from the water to the transition area at the London Tri but I quickly found my bike and headed out onto the road.

First, with your upcoming 5K, I strongly advise you to check out the “Couch to 5K” training schedule. This training schedule is a GREAT way to get back into running safely and wisely.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve had weight issues. I remember standing on the scale as a child weighing 60 pounds and feeling fat. My family dealt with stress by eating.
