31st Annual Clermont Triathlon Series Event #1 - TriathlonSprint

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Clermont, Florida
United States
Sommer Sports
86F / 30C
Total Time = 1h 17m 32s
Overall Rank = 104/292
Age Group = M40-44
Age Group Rank = 17/36
Pre-race routine:

Nothing Special (per normal)
Event warmup:

  • 09m 1s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 03s / 100 yards

Really had a bad time keeping a straight line. Could not get around anyone without spending too much energy or having to go around their other side.
What would you do differently?:

Probably get out to a safe distance on outside of course to avoid crashing into people
Transition 1
  • 02m 22s

Had trouble putting helmet and race belt on before being able to unrack and hit the road. Also, shoes would not let me slide in and hit the hill before I had my 2nd shoe on.
What would you do differently?:

Mentally run thru how to execute in T2 so I have a fresh game-plan in my head. Wasted too much time wondering if I had everything on before leaving.
  • 40m 11s
  • 10.68 miles
  • 15.95 mile/hr

Did not have the extra gear(s) on this bike leg! I felt tired and overwhelmed by the course. Definitely feeling lack of training showing it's ugly head.
Transition 2
  • 01m 44s

T2 went off a lot better but still took my time and used the break to catch my breath
  • 25m 59s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 23s  min/mile

Felt sluggish still from the bike and never really recovered. Just felt flat on this race.
Post race
Warm down:

Lots of water, and fruit from post-race tent

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not sure what to put this on, outside of lack of specific training. I felt flat the entire race and never snapped out of it.

Event comments:

While a lot of people like to rag on the Sommer Sports Clermont series, I think you get what you pay for and more. The race(s) is/are on schedule, transition is organized and safe, the course is well-known especially to drivers and residents, and you know what to expect coming in. In the age of overpriced and under-delivered races, this series is something you can definitely enjoy.
