white lake spring sprint - Triathlon

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
white lake, North Carolina
United States
Setup Events
60F / 16C
Total Time = 1h 31m 23s
Overall Rank = 63M/123M
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 6/8
Pre-race routine:

Took Friday and Saturday off before the Sunday race. Did 2 runs, a bike and a swim earlier in the week. Drove out to the event on Saturday but arrived just before Midnight. Should have planned better to get more rest.

Arrived 1.5 hours before gun which allowed me to check in, setup transition, and make a bike adjustment.
Event warmup:

Not much warm up.
  • 18m 41s
  • 750 meters
  • 02m 29s / 100 meters

This was the worst swim I have had, and usually its my best of the three events. Felt like I couldn't breath, and couldn't move. Didn't feel like the conditions were too bad but it was a little choppy for a lake
What would you do differently?:

Two years ago I used a full sleeve suit. Will have to reconsider using wet suits in the future.
Transition 1
  • 03m 51s

Was leaving TZ when I realized timing strap had come off my ankle. Oops! Ran back and fished it out of my wet suit

8th in AG and 95th out of men.
What would you do differently?:

With exception of the dislodging my strap, I thought TZ went well.
  • 42m 21s
  • 14.3 miles
  • 20.26 mile/hr

Sensor wasn't picking up my speed. Raced by feel, and overall it was to my benefit. My second fastest average speed during a triathlon.

Drank during bike and finished my aero bottle. Took a gel within the last mile or two
What would you do differently?:

Ran low on time and didn't double check the sensor for my bike computer. This is the second time I have done this and both times I have been happy with the results.
Transition 2
  • 01m 34s
What would you do differently?:

  • 24m 59s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m  min/km

Sprint 5K PR
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and cheered some folks on

Event comments:

Typical well run Setup Events Race. This was the second time running this race, and will likely race again next year.

Good T-shirts. They did pack up the for sale items pretty early, and would only recommend that they keep selling items thru awards.

My first triathlon was at age 56. At first I was just the cameraman at my daughter's first triathlon, then I am doing the races that she has done.

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?

Training in the cold can be effective and fun with some planning. Overall, prepare for the environment, stay hydrated and dry, listen to your body and have a great safe cold weather outing.
