Dallas Athletes Racing
68F / 20C
Total Time = 1h 16m 1s
Overall Rank = 124/356
Age Group = M40-44
Age Group Rank = 12/27
Pre-race routine:

Same as always. But I had been fighting with my girlfriend and she didn't come to the race, so that was on my mind a little bit.
Event warmup:

Some really light jogging in transition. Didn't do much race prep. so no point in warming up a whole lot.
  • 05m 9s
  • 275 meters
  • 01m 52s / 100 meters

As usual, I self-seeded appropriately, even though to do so I have to lie on my registration and put about 30-45 seconds faster than I'm capable of. Just goes to show that people do not know how to self-seed at all. I think I got passed by 2 people and I passed 2 people. So, it was very even. I'd only swam a handful of times before the race and that was it for the past year. I didn't really lose much swim fitness over the past year either.
Transition 1
  • 01m 21s

Felt strong coming out of the water and had a good T1
  • 39m 35s
  • 11.5 miles
  • 17.43 mile/hr

Didn't push it on the bike because I wanted to have a good run. I had also not done any kind of specific race prep and probably would've cooked my legs if I had gone hard.
Transition 2
  • 01m 23s

Nothing good or bad. Just a regular T2
  • 28m 33s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 13s  min/mile

Just stayed within my normal pace range like I do on every run.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretching and that was it

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I did zero race prep and have just been doing my normal workouts all year. I wanted to see how I'd perform like this.

Event comments:

Nice easy course and I like the venue. Last year's swim was only 1 second faster on the swim and about 3 minutes faster on bike and run each. I was really trying on the run last year and just didn't care too much this year.
