Lake George Triathlon
75F / 24C
Total Time = 2h 17m 10s
Overall Rank = 15/386
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 3/29
Pre-race routine:

Decided to drive up the morning of the race, which wasn't too bad. Ate a bagel with PB and milk in the car on the way. Had plenty of time to check in and set up.
Event warmup:

1 mile run with a few pick ups.
  • 24m 26s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 38s / 100 meters

Pretty solid swim. Once again Liam was shot out of a cannon so no chance to hang on his feet. Was able to find a good set early on though.
What would you do differently?:

Not much
Transition 1
  • 01m 29s

Sold, no issues
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 08m 43s
  • 40 kms
  • 34.93 km/hr

Couldn't quite hit the power number I wanted, but that's been typical this season. Overall a solid bike on a course that I'm sure can cause people to go too hard from the hills.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing really
Transition 2
  • 00m 39s

What would you do differently?:

  • 41m 55s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m 11s  min/km

Not my best run, just never really felt all that great. It's not an easy course I know, but still. Felt a bit gassy perhaps. Not my normal breakfast, so maybe that played a role. I also went off course at a poorly marked turn off the bike path into what appeared to be just woods. They really should've had a volunteer there (or a better sign), cost me about 30 seconds I'd say. Toughed it out despite not having it today though.
What would you do differently?:

Not sticking to the usual breakfast may have been a mistake. Going off course didn't help either.
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked around, didn't feel too beat up.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not my best run, but overall a good race for me at a distance I've struggled with more times than not in the past.

Event comments:

Really like this venue, and this was the first time doing the Olympic since 2008, when the course was different (even the swim!).
