View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Holmsjo, Blekinge
23C / 73F
Total Time = 59m 52s
Overall Rank = 17/71
Age Group = Female all ages
Age Group Rank = 4/36
Pre-race routine:

3pm start so no need to get up early. drove from house around 12. got there 1h30 before start. Set up my stuff, had a chat with people I knew.

Doing this distance for the 2nd time. The goal was to beat my time from then (58:29)
Event warmup:

a little run, some stretching, some swimming
  • 06m 35s
  • 300 meters
  • 02m 11s / 100 meters

Once I found my space after the chaos at the start, nothing to report, went according to plan.
my watch said 330m so a pace of just under 2 min. I can't do better than that right now

45 seconds faster than last time.
Transition 1
  • 01m 29s

A good transition, 11 seconds slower than last time but I wore a westsuit this time

so Swim + T1 about half a minute faster - so far so good
  • 32m 24s
  • 16 kms
  • 29.63 km/hr

lots of up and down. pushed hard downhill and on flat to make the ups easier. Worked most of the time. 26 seconds faster than last time. Still going great

Transition 2
  • 01m 15s

Good T2, 8 seconds faster than last time. Still going great
  • 18m
  • 3 kms
  • 06m  min/km

that's where the fun ends. Had heavy legs, couldn't get going and when I got passed by 2 girls, I gave up trying.

Really unhappy about my lack of willpower. Did a brick the day after (20k+3k) and ran the 3k in 16 minutes so it's not the legs or the lack of condition, it's my stupid head.

Warm down:

Sat down and cried, feeling really stupid.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

the thing between my ears

Event comments:

Small village race. Very friendly and well organized. Room for everyone, beginners and more routined athletes alike
