Trident
80F / 27C
Sunny
Total Time = 1h 22m 16s
Overall Rank = 45/322
Age Group = 50-54
Age Group Rank = 3/23
Pre-race routine:

Long ride to Ft. Worth. Power was out the night before until late so not much sleep. Left later than I wanted.
Event warmup:

Set up transition and waited for the swim. Nothing much to speak of.
Swim
  • 06m 2s
  • 300 meters
  • 02m 01s / 100 meters
Comments:

Pool was 3.5 feet deep and the lanes seemed narrow. I was number 111 but plenty of people cheated their swim times and were in the way. Slowed down my swim considerably. Was hoping to do about 5:30.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing much I could do.
Transition 1
  • 01m 58s
Comments:

Somewhat of a disaster here. My race belt was not sized right and fell on the ground so I had to fix that. At the mount line I tried to put my 910XT on to the bike mount and missed. It flew across the road and under a car. Cost me some time for sure. Bummer.
What would you do differently?:

Check all my equipment ahead of time and just leave the watch on my wrist for a sprint.
Bike
  • 46m 2s
  • 15 miles
  • 19.55 mile/hr
Comments:

Fairly technical course. First lap was a feeling out process. Second lap was better when I knew what was coming.
What would you do differently?:

Get familiar with the course before the race.
Transition 2
  • 01m 38s
Comments:

Took my feet out of my shoes at the end of the bike course too early. Had trouble getting shoes on and took an extra few seconds.
What would you do differently?:

Get my shoes squared away to slide them on easily.
Run
  • 26m 39s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 20s  min/km
Comments:

My shoes rubbed blisters on the top of my feet which was painful. Flat besides the one hill.
What would you do differently?:

Go to shoes that I know will not blister.
Post race
Warm down:

Got a Gatorade and waited for my training partner to finish.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

A few minor mistakes that probably ended up costing me a few minutes.

Event comments:

Nice little race in downtown Ft. Worth. I like the downtown race. Pool swim was hectic. Bike course was fun and the run interesting with the big hill.
