Pre-race routine:

Quick breakfast and coffee at the house before biking down to nokomis. Doesn't get much better than a race start 1 mile from home.

  • 01m 51s / 100 yards
Comments:

This was a great swim for me. I felt like I was doing well during the swim and I was glad to see my time when I exited the lake. I sited well. The water was the perfect temp for a wetsuit. I didn't get caught behind anyone slower. It was really as good as I could hope for.
What would you do differently?:

The swim is, and maybe always will be, my limiting factor. Going to swim through the winter this year and I am going to hire a swim coach to try to get my swimming in alignment with bike and run.

Wetsuit came off quick. Was glad I wore it.

  • 46m 38s
  • 15.5 miles

Comments:

Oh so close to 20 mph. I love this race but man this bike course is not conducive to fast times. There were a few awkward turns, almost u turns and this seal cost that they use on the creek and river parkway roads is bumpy enough to be annoying. I know we all have to bike the same bike course but I think I got spoiled by the Chisago bike course a few weeks ago!
What would you do differently?:

I think I'm going to buy a tri bike for 2018. Yikes!
Transition 2

Run
  • 24m 14s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 51s  min/km
Comments:

Not my best 5k. Good swim and good bike and ok run. Is it possible in triathlon to do well in all three on one day?? Probably not!
