Pre-race routine:

Did the Super Sprint prior to this event.
  • 07m 3s
  • 300 yards
  • 02m 21s / 100 yards

Felt calm and relaxed during swim. One person passed me, but he was passing a lot of people, so felt like I lined up in the correct order.
What would you do differently?:

Swim faster?
Transition 1
  • 01m 8s

Little bit faster than the super sprint. Opted not to wear a jacket or socks, it was costing time in transition and I figured with it being a sprint, I could get warm and dry pretty quickly.
  • 47m 32s
  • 13 miles
  • 16.41 mile/hr

Only second time I have been out on the new Felt. As with the super sprint, there was a tailwind going out and a nasty headwind on the way back. Passed a number of people on the hills. It was just a nasty day.
Transition 2
  • 02m 13s

Not sure what I was doing in T2, baking a cake or something? Jeez...
What would you do differently?:

Go faster? Get with the program?
  • 36m 31s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 47s  min/mile

Had a decent run (for me). Felt like I "got my legs" very quickly. Allowed myself to walk up the big hill.
What would you do differently?:

Need to work on hills more
Post race
Warm down:

Mary and Ginger had finished before me and were dancing at the finish line as I came through. It was fun and they made me laugh and kick it in a bit. Loaded up the bike, got on some warm clothes and enjoyed some pizza. Everyone who did both the mini and the sprint received a cowbell and a bottle opener, which was a nice touch.

Event comments:

nice local event!

At mile ten I heard a noise like I had gotten paper in my spokes or something. I looked but saw nothing but a few seconds later my rear tire blows out.

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.
