Carrollton tri - TriathlonSprint

View Member's Race Log
Carrollton, GA
72F / 22C
Total Time = 1h 33m 5s
Overall Rank = /350
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Ate a bowl oatmeal (3 hrs prior)
listened to my "pump it up" CD (burned especially for races)
Got there an hour early to set up transition area
downed half a bottle of pepto
and some energy gel called GU which really helped in the bike

Event warmup:

did a quick run and stretches (especially arms)
  • 14m 18s
  • 500 yards
  • 02m 52s / 100 yards

Felt so much better than the last two swims, I was still slow but I did not panic at all this time. I kept plugging away, I only had to breast stroke about 5% of the entire race.
What would you do differently?:

Practice higher distance swimming, improve speed, more open water practices
Transition 1
  • 00m

T1 went well, I took my time instead of rushing through which made it a bit easier to slip into shoes and get some water in me
  • 42m 13s
  • 12 miles
  • 17.05 mile/hr

Didn't feel as good on the bike today. The hills were brutal to me. I think I should of geared down a little instead of trying to attack them. It ultimately wore me out. The energy gel did help tremendously.
What would you do differently?:

More hill training.
New bike :)
Transition 2
  • 00m

Good Transition, made sure I was fully hydrated before starting the run
  • 30m 43s
  • 3.5 miles
  • 08m 47s  min/mile

I don't think I was prepared for all the hills on the run. Just when you thought you were through them another was looming around the bend. I kept a consistent pace though. Only got passed by twice.
What would you do differently?:

Wear my yankz next time, I had to stop and tie my shoes at one point. D'oh!
Post race
Warm down:

warm down walk around track at finish line

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I think I needed more rest

Event comments:

What a great race, it was very challenging. It was very well put on too! Kudos to the organizers. This one will be on my calender next year for sure.
