View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Memphis, Tennessee
United States
50F / 10C
Total Time = 8h 16m 52s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = M45-49
Age Group Rank = 102/125
Pre-race routine:

Nervous as all get out
Event warmup:

Arm swings and jumping in the air
  • 1h 09m 31s
  • 2000 meters
  • 03m 29s / 100 meters
What would you do differently?:

Train for the race, never swam over 1000 meters, work on getting comfortable in the water and getting more water time
Transition 1
  • 09m 38s

Took my time, was a long run to T1 from the swim (.34 miles), just wanted to make sure I was ready for the ride
What would you do differently?:

Not much, could have run a bit more, but just wanted to finish
  • 3h 49m 46s
  • 56.2 miles
  • 14.68 mile/hr

Course was good, rode my road bike for the comfort. Did not hit my nutrition plan at all, stomach got sour (probably from the Welch chews, too much sugar) Took too much time in the aid stations, because of stomach, but will work on nutrition better next time
What would you do differently?:

More bike time, use the tri bike, and get thru the aid stations. Also my Garmin acted up, so had to fiddle with it.
Transition 2
  • 10m 41s

Took too much time in T2, but wanted to make sure I survived the run
What would you do differently?:

Just add some more speed in T2
  • 2h 57m 40s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 13m 34s  min/mile

Needed to run more than 3 miles or 10 in a week. My walk / run plan was good and have tons of room to improve
What would you do differently?:

Train for this race next time. but proved that I could gut out this race
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training, or lack of. No swim, 50-70 miles a week riding, and 3-7 miles a week running, won't cut it.

Event comments:

Could have had more pizza, but that is what I get for being so late
