Rottne, Kronoberg
15C / 59F
Total Time = 3h 06m 16s
Overall Rank = /30
Age Group = Female all ages
Age Group Rank = 4/5
Pre-race routine:

My first oly on my home turf.

Up at 7, walked to the site with the dog to pick up my start kit. Breakfast and walked back with my gear around 8:30.

Event warmup:

Not much, just walking around, light stretching and a few strokes to get a feel of the water. Not too cold (18C) perfect
  • 33m 40s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 14s / 100 meters

Faster swim than I imagined. I was counting on 38 minutes. Very nice feeling from start to finish
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 02m 56s

A slow transition but that was the plan , being my first oly. I figured if I took my time in transition, it would give me some time to catch my breath. Took the time to dry myself off a bit and put a windbreaker on. Forgot to put my helmet on and had to walk back a few meters to get it. Rookie mistake !
What would you do differently?:

Do not hide the helmet, even if it’s raining, that way you are less likely to forget it!
  • 1h 25m 48s
  • 40 kms
  • 27.97 km/hr

2 laps of 20k each, headwind on the way out, tailwind on the way back, which was nice.
Also faster than planned (1:30) despite the rain which by then was quite heavy.
First race on the new bike I bought last year. He did well

Transition 2
  • 01m 33s

Another slow transition, as was planned, Took the time to sit down, dry my feet and put socks on.
  • 1h 02m 18s
  • 10 kms
  • 06m 14s  min/km

Slower than my goal (60) but I may have overestimated my ability here. The run is definitely my weak point, mainly because I don’t train enough due to various aches and pains. Still, It felt good the whole time.
What would you do differently?:

Train more if my body permits it

What limited your ability to perform faster:

First oly out of the way. For years (7 to be precise) I never wanted to do anything longer than a sprint but I like this distance and will certainly do more in the future!

Event comments:

A small village race, very well organised, plenty of happy volunteers despite the dreadful weather.
