Chisago Lakes Triathlon - Triathlon

View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Chisago City, Minnesota
United States
82F / 28C
Total Time = 6h 05m
Overall Rank = 112/231
Age Group = f50-54
Age Group Rank = 6/11
Pre-race routine:

Showed up just before 6am and could have used just a little more time. Ate overnight oats and blueberries, and chai 3 hours before race start. Drank PH 1500 on the drive to the race
Event warmup:

Short swim, then gel 15 minutes before start
  • 43m 12s
  • 2112 yards
  • 02m 03s / 100 yards

First section was a little tough. Choppy water, and I was super out of practice with a wave start. It was a little congested. Finally calmed down after the first turn. Then things mostly went smoothly. Felt fine the rest of the way. Glad I went with my clear goggles.
What would you do differently?:

More practice trying to draft off of feet.
Transition 1
  • 02m 41s

I should have worn my sneakers from the beach. I could have run through transition much faster.
  • 3h 06m 6s
  • 56 miles
  • 18.05 mile/hr

Mostly went ok. Did great with my hydration and nutrition. Did manage to lose a rear hydration cage/bottle. Next time I need to tighten screws before a race. Managed the pain in my foot and back ok. Stayed in aero most of the time.
Transition 2
  • 02m 23s

Sat down to switch shoes. I just about never do that. Probably slowed me down
  • 2h 10m 37s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 09m 58s  min/mile

Kept it nice and steady, and walk when I needed to.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. It went pretty well considering the heat. Glad I did a heat protocol leading up to the race
Post race
Warm down:

walking around, trying to eat and drink, packing up all my stuff, waiting for Mary to finish

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not much. Maybe more consistent run training.

Event comments:

Mostly ok. Though some miscommunication with how the swim start would be, also they allowed headphones, and suggested people bring their phones on the bike course.
