Pre-race routine:

Drove out to buffalo.
Event warmup:

  • 08m 25s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 55s / 100 yards

Was crowded but I felt this swim was a good reflection of my increased focus of getting better in the water. The wave included men and women which was different than I'm used to.
What would you do differently?:

Typically I start in the back of my wave but I think I'm fast enough that I need to start closer to the front now. I should try sprinting in the beginning and then settling in. This would help a lot with the crowds.
Transition 1
  • 02m 6s
  • 37m 41s
  • 12.06 miles
  • 19.20 mile/hr

It was a little windy and the course was a little hilly. However, considering the last two months that my bike training has almost entirely been my 6 mile commute I killed this!
I would say the one downside of this race is that the bike is crowded. I think I've heard that from others who do buffalo every year. I got super annoyed when a guy on a tri bike passed me on the inside towards the end of the bike length. He should know better!
What would you do differently?:

Looking forward to biking more this summer and getting faster.
Transition 2
  • 01m 34s
  • 24m 29s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 54s  min/mile

Hilly/rolling run. First mile or so had a few little hills which are very challenging as your legs are getting acclimated to running. I passed a few folks on the run and I know I passed one woman in my AG.

Event comments:

I did buffalo tri about 8 years ago. It's a fun race. It is about 1 hour from my house but the lake is beautiful and the bike course is interesting.
