Welwyn Garden City, England
20C / 68F
Total Time = 2h 54m 41s
Overall Rank = 89/145
Age Group = M40-49
Age Group Rank = 18/29
  • 28m 42s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 55s / 100 meters

Decent swim! A couple of bumps and knocks, but pretty stress-free. Water pretty murky and warm.
What would you do differently?:

Approach buoys a little wider. Do a few 1500m time-trials for prep to gauge performance and confidence.
Transition 1
  • 01m 46s
  • 1h 25m 43s
  • 40 kms
  • 28.00 km/hr

Found it hard to get momentum, a little lack of race-prep and nature of course, I guess. Used aero-helmet and tri-bars so should have been quicker.
What would you do differently?:

Prepare for race with efforts & intervals to increase sharpness.
Transition 2
  • 01m 31s
  • 56m 57s
  • 10 kms
  • 05m 42s  min/km

Aimed for under an hour and achieved that but I was pretty empty by the end.
What would you do differently?:

Avoid park run day before and long run on Thursday night!
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of specific training and nee to lose a little weight.

Event comments:

Hard race, but good. Decent swim, slow bike and slower run! Shouldn't have done park run yesterday! Quite a lot of traffic on road by end of bike leg.
