Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

Trouble getting HR up...ran 1 mile with short sprint.
  • 14m 20s
  • 2 miles
  • 07m 10s  min/mile

Always a struggle
Transition 1
  • 00m 38s
  • 54m
  • 20.6 miles
  • 22.89 mile/hr

Almost washed out front wheel on gravel in a 90° turn. Lucky to stay upright. Kind of ran out of gas at mile 15...disappointing. Slammed a GU. I wasn't fully engaged, no one to chase down after the first few miles.
Transition 2
  • 00m 48s

Couldn't unclip helmet for a few seconds.
  • 15m 27s
  • 2 miles
  • 07m 44s  min/mile

Walked at drink station. Walked again on bike path....terrible.
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing. Grabbed my bike out of transition early so I could take my time back to the car and return for awards.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Behind on training because of long foot injury. Need to change some things off season. Came out with a win in AG but was only a 6 overall.

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).

Is it possible for loners to work in a small group and still have plenty of time on their own? Training in small groups can give many benefits.

My first duathlon was a success. I had so many fears before the race but none of those fears happened. And when it was all over, I felt I had accomplished something big.

This program should be used for an athlete who is new to duathlon and their goal is to complete a sprint duathlon without difficulty. The schedule consists of 3 workouts per week in each sport.

Don’t forget this is an incredibly big year for sport with the Olympics back in Athens where the modern Olympics started, and especially triathlon to make its second appearance.

"I was wondering if this is a sensible approach? Should I get "better" on short distance and then move to something longer or do what I want if I feel I can do it whatever the time?"
