Age Group Rank = 9/27
Pre-race routine:

Last night had BT gathering at Marinos. Choose to eat light with salmon and sweet potatoes. Packed up transition bag and got wetsuit bag ready, reviewed time estimates with Kevin so he can be the look out for me.

Goals for the race:
1. Have fun the whole day and do my best
2. Accept I did my best w/o regard to pace/placement-this is hard for me
3. Go hard on the bike and run and see what happens; try and push myself more than I normally do.

Beyond those goals I really wanted to do sub 3 as my A race last year I did 3:01:15 with a long bike course. I had done the excel spreadsheets and thought I could do it if I had a decent swim and could run my average aerobic pace. I had looked up last couple years race results and figured I had a good shot at getting hardware as they go 10 deep.I can't control how others have trained only me.

I race better on my intuition and feel than by watching numbers on my HRM or powermeter. I've been doing this for the last year and go faster w/o gadgets. I brought my powermeter and taped over display so I get the data but didn't race by it..may sound strange but I'm hard on myself and I need to race in the moment and this allows me to do it best.

I get to transition around 6:07 and it is dark. My rack mate has a bike pump I ask if I can borrow it to pump up my tires. Crude the pump gets stuck on rear tire and I rip the valve out of the tube. I can't get the pump off so I carry my bike to bike shop people, wait in line, and the guys changes my tire. I see that I never changed my tire from my trainer cheapy tire...roll it off nothing I can do. He changes tire, pumps it up and it sticks over the rim. He takes lets the air out and does it again; I worry that it will have wrecked the tube, no he says it will be okay. He starts adjusting the drop outs to get wheel in better, then shifts thru the gears...I'm like ahhh now is not the time to adjust my bike. Then he need to adjust the stem on my front tube as it wouldn't let air in and it was low...I have 8 minutes to set up my transition area...stressful. I get everything set up and realize I gave my race sunglasses to my husband Kevin. Oops I have a spare pair, set those up...greatful to get out of the transition area 90 seconds before the deadline...DQ if you are late.

Next time bring my headlamp for easy transition set up in the dark.

Phew..now about 90 minutes until I start. Kevin and I walk over to swim start wait in endless lines at the restrooms, then we get my chip...lines were horrible. Now time to get ready to race.

Swim
  • 38m 54s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 22s / 100 yards
Comments:

Found a small group of 4 BTers 'Lucy' Chrisine, Olivette, Irene 'panout' and to start the swim with. As has become my habit I laugh and be goofy before the start as it keeps me calm...whereas most folks are really quite intense and serious.

The swim goal for me was to feel comfortable doing a longer ocean swim. I felt a little panicky about 30 seconds into swimming, but overcame that and just kept swimming without stopping. I'm not fast, but had fun and felt comfortable which is a huge step for me.

I tried to pick up the pace after rounding the first buoy. I had a little trouble drifting right on 2nd leg but sighted more often and corrected quickly.

I actually passed some folks in the waves in front of me not many. The white and red caps caught me.
What would you do differently?:

I'm working with my coach to develop a strategy to improve my swimming. My pace hasn't improved in last year it seems to have gotten slower but my endurance and feeling more comfortable has come along. My two Int'l distance races I did last year I swam 39 & 29...was hoping for 33-37 today.

I'd have been more competitive in my group if I could even have an average swim time...it is a little frustrating to keep working at it with no real results.
Transition 1
  • 01m 51s
Comments:

I heard my husband cheering for me...which always motivates me.

I went into T1 and saw my time and thought my goal of going sub 3 was shot. I was quick and did well. 3rd fastest T1

  • 20.03 mile/hr
Comments:

Transition went well and I was fast, on the bike passed folks right away and nailed it from the get go as many seemed timid riding on the cobblestone. I had ridden that part of the course 4x the day before so knew I was comfortable with it. Found I was heavy breathing quickly and tried to ease up but had a hard time with that. I found what was my comfortable pushing pace in time and was able to just go and really have a blast. The young fast women in the AG that started after me who swim fast, I raced with...it was great. At one point I was behind this women who we'd been back and forth a bunch, and I hear a motorcycle...referee coming so I pass her as I was kind a close to her but it packed with people. I ended passing about 10 folks and the motorcycle stayed with me about 30 seconds and I knew I was nailed for something. Figured sub 3 was a lost cause here but more annoyed that I didn't think I did anything wrong compared to others.

Turns out I got a drafting penalty and she couldn't read my number so I almost got a second 2' penalty for number issue but she was able to read my helmet number.

There were either 24 or 25 turns we had to make some tight others not. I found that I could carry my speed through the turns better than most folks who braked a lot and then powered up after the corner. I worked with my coach on cornering earlier in the month I saw how much it helped me corner smoother, brake less and waste less energy.

Rest of ride was uneventful, it great though and I really had a blast. I came into transition and knew I had done well as I could see I was around 1:15 turns out I was 2nd and averaged 20...whoo hoo!! Only 1:07 off first in my group. When I started riding, I hit my powermeter button to make sure it was on and ithe nub thing it was on rotated and was dangling stuck on my aerobars...see so many bike problems but still I did well could have been some issues. Last 5-7 miles was windy but I didn't matter riding on instinct.

The competitive me loved passing all those Athenas in the first few miles...they got farther and farther apart though and I think I passed the last one I recalled about mile 20 and only 1 I recall passed me back on the run.

I saw Christine as we went into the Golf Course Loop and Sue on the way out of the Golf Course area and knew she nailed an awesome swim.

I wish they had overall results listed so I could see how I placed overall in my splits.

I drank 40 oz of Gatorade w/extra electrolytes and took a Lava Salt tab, & had 5 Cliff Shot Bloks.


What would you do differently?:

I wonder if I pushed to hard on the bike, but it was so fun to race hard and pass so many folks.

Given what happened on the run, probably needed to take in more electrolytes/fluids on the bike.

Of my whole race most pleased with bike performance I guess all the riding I've done this year almost 1300 miles and riding outside all winter in the cold in MA paid off today. Still I want to get faster...over 21 in an Oly...next year.

Later my coach Will looked over my power file for the race
1st 35' Normal Power was 170 with avg HR of 151
2nd 35' Normal Power was 155 with avg HR of 151

Pushed to hard on the first half of the bike, became either tired/dehydrated 2nd half and pushing hard on bike probably caused the crash on the run. We adjusted my power numbers based on this race. I will be working on proper pacing going forward.
Transition 2
  • 01m 45s
Comments:

It is cool to come back to transition and see hardly any bikes racked just like when I left; which confirms that I passed many out there.

First time T2 faster than T1 as I put socks on T2 which normally slows me down..not today. 2nd fastest T2.

As I came out of T2 I figured I still had a chance at going sub 3 if I could put together a good run of just over 10 m/m, but man I was proud of myself for an awesome ride and actually teared up on my way out.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing
Run
  • 1h 07m 19s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 10m 50s  min/mile
Comments:

Run well went okay but really it was hard...I started walking after about 5' to take my Lava Salt and do my inhaler then back to running as I get run induced asthma. The run it was hot...walked a little as needed but only every 8-10'. I was breathing so loud racers in front of me would turn and look at me.

You'll be proud I was able to pee while running oh..got socks and shoes messy...oh well. I now am a tri-peeier if that is a word as I can pee swimming, biking and now running...such excellent skills to learn when you are 45 year old mother of 5.

I started hurting bad (it was only sort of bad before that) with 2 miles left and felt crampy in calves and hammys and I was afraid I'd fall down as I could hardly lift my legs. As I got closer to the finish the cramps would move up or down my legs with every stemp I can't remember which but started or ended in calves and would move up or down to my glutes..it was tough and I felt like I didn't have much control over my legs and that I might tumble over at anytime. Kevin said I looked like I was walking dead was running strange and that I gave it my all and that I was toast. I finished and walked felt much better almost okay.

On the course it was fun to see various BTers along the way...first say Big O, then on way back Lisa (Gatorgirl), then Janice (Foolproof) who I high 5ed and was excited to know she had done the swim WTG!, then Wendi looking good, and I know I saw more women but I'm blanking on who all I saw as I was just trying to push on...I think wearing the BT tri top is cool as all BTers yell at me which is so encouraging even if I don't know them or recognize them at the moment.


What would you do differently?:

Not run in the heat/sun..pretty hard to have a good run as my training runs have been in the 50 degree and under temps and it was close to 90 today. I need to accept I'm 1.5m/m or more slower with the heat. Perhaps I pushed to hard on the bike which hurt my run...but riding was so fun.

I was within 15 seconds of my PB for a run split for this distance so given the weather it was okay; but my run has improved a lot this off season and I want to see the results in my tris. My run pace drops off a lot in tris compared to just running and I hope this year to have that drop of be less.

I wish I knew the answer to having a good run in a tri...why does it always hurt so much? Doing my long runs, intervals or aerobic runs are always more enjoyable than running in a tri.

Since October until March I have struggled with Plantar Fasititis and then in January Achilles Tendinitis so maybe I'm being to hard on myself...as my running was very limited much of the off season.
Post race
Warm down:

Tried to find Kevin and in walking around, both my legs cramped up and I feel over face down on the grass and was in horrible pain. Some kind triathletes helped push up my toes as they were stuck pointing down. BTers Rick and Jeff saw me collapse over and Rick said later that as I fell I did it in a way he thought someone having a heart attack would fall. It was so painful...cramps got a bit better..Rick got medical to come get me...finally my husband Kevin found me. I just stood up as if I moved my legs cramped. We got a ride in the cart over to the medical where they worked on my legs and I drank 50 oz of Endurance Gatorade. They worked on my legs by pressure, ice and pushing things opposite way. They advised doing an ice bath to help things get better faster.

They sent me over to massage tent, and I was pushed to front of the line as I had been in medical...hope it helps.

I wasn't able to eat until after 3pm and I finished at 11:24...strange I wasn't really hungry.

I had hoped I could place in top 10 by looking at finishing times of those in my division in the last couple of years thought I really had a shot. While lying in medical tent, saw the results board so we went over there after medical, I find that I'm 9th, but not sure if that includes my penalty if I got one or not. Back side of the board yep I got 2 minutes for drafting while I passed those folks. Now will that push me out of 9th and 10th.

After awhile the awards start so I go up and ask at the table if I placed since honestly I had no desire to stay if I didn't. Yes I got 9th including the penalty. We wait, wait and wait as they go thru all the AGers, once they get to the old folks, the announcer had a story about everyone. They were running 1.5 hours late. Finally the Clydes, then the Athenas...they start at #10, and go in reverse order and don't list me as placing...WTF? I go up to the desk and talk with them, and point out the women who told me I was 9th. Finally they find another list and I'm listed as 9th with the 2' penalty so they give me the men's Clydesdale 40-49 award. Kevin & I waited 90 minutes or more for the award kind of disappointing how it got messed up. When the results were posted on-line at first I wasn't listed anywhere. I emailed with the timing people and they had a bug so all the rule breakers like me were not listed at first.

Because awards took so long my bike was lying on the ground in transition as they were taking it down. If they had run on time or announced what order they were going in, I would have been able to take care of picking up my transition, eating, and changing and be back in time to be skipped.

MOP baby..."You were 654th out of 1264 women" at St. A's...geez I asked the timing officials..not bad for racing as a 46 year old!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

1. Heat: Being from MA not used to training or racing in high temps.
2. Fitness: This was a C race for me as I'm working to my early season peak in early June...so was a little fatigued...hard to accept doing C race results though
3. Pacing: We tried something at pushing hard both on bike and run and I paid for my nice bike split on the run
4. Dehydration/Cramping: This is the second Int'l distance in a row that I have had major cramping issues on the run; last one it was in the 70's...need to solve this so I can do well in my upcoming Int'ls and HIM.
5. Swimming...need to set up a plan to improve with my coach.
6. Finishing losing weight..like to lose 10-20 more pounds get to 100-110 total lost...easier to do everything lighter.

I can make the list of what limits my performance, but if I think back in 9/04 I did my first tri and averaged 12 mph on the bike, now 2.5 years later I nailed over 20...it is pretty cool with hard work and smart training thanks to my coach Will how I've improved. 2 years ago my first longer race I was 4:21 in a 1/4 IM (basically a Int'l distance with shorter swim) now I'm a little bummed that I was 3:04 + 2 or 3:06...not 2:59, but does it really matter?

I'm struggling a bit with my mixed feeling about performance acceptance and sort of my dreams/hopes of what I could do. Last year I improved a lot 14-16 minutes on the same sprints as the year before, and an hour at Mooseman Int'l, I need to accept the gains will be smaller this year with probably more effort.This race I PBed the bike for speed, was only 15 seconds off run PB after hammering on bike..it is a early season race should set me up well. It is hard to compare race paces from one race to another as conditions vary as it does from year to year at the same course, but I can't help doing so.

I'd do much better if I was better balanced...I look at my race results and they are farther apart than anyone else's in my division as far as placements. Strange 1.5 years ago I never would have though my run placement would be my second best part well if transitions mattered more I'd rock there too...advantage of being a Mom of 5 chaos always reigns.

I think to much...but it makes it fun for me..even w/o gadgets I was calculating my finish times throughout the race as they have splits at each end of transition I knew I had 63-64 minutes to run to come in sub 3 so 10:15 m/m.

All this playing around in FL last couple weeks, come home & go to work and find someone else sitting at my desk...guess what I lost my job..."they have moved in another direction". More time to ride & train for now...so guess the time off continues.

Strangest fact..I was the oldest women racing in the BT crowd this weekend....it was little weird as I don't feel old.

Later: My coach Will asked a great question have I started any new medications and could they play a part in my cramping. I read the odd side effects of something I started taking in January it can cause heat prostration due to decrease sweating in hot environment...ahhh....well probably not good idea to take while doing a 3 hour race in 85 degree weather. But would that cause me to be overhydrated and not dehydrated...crap...need to figure out if I can take something else instead. Smart thinking on Will's part as I hadn't considered that.


Event comments:

The best thing about the race was all the BTers that were here and all the fun we had before, during and after the race. All of you that didn't do it mark December 1st on your calendar and sign up for the race next year!

'Q' Jeff did an awesome job with the social events...kudos to him!

The best part was your smiling face on the run!  You are such an awesome athlete!  Glad I got to race with you!

Your goals for St. Anthony's were:  Have fun, enjoy the challenge of the swim, be mentally strong, go fast on bike/run and see what happens.  It looks like you accomplished all of those.  I know you LOVE calculating the numbers ... your brain never stops!  You did amazing in spite of the cramps and penalty.  It sounds like you had such a good time.  I have a feeling you might not be an Athena next year.

I can't believe how much BUTT you kicked on the bike, girl! Yeehaw! I hope to be that fast someday. I must get myself over to MA and ride with you sometime this year.

It was absolutely great to meet and spend time with you and Kevin. You guys are genuinely nice people and I can't wait to hang out at another race. Those pictures are great by the way, did Kevin take them?

You are on your way to a fantastic tri season...I can feel it!

WOW great race Kathy

 I love seeing people I know on the course

It was awesome meeting you this weekend.  You embody the spirit of triathlon!  When you got to Marino's you walked around the room with a big smile greeting friends and introducing yourself to us newbies.  I was really impressed by your outgoing nature!

You are also an inspiration.  I know that you have spent a lot of time losing wieght and training with a determined perseverance which resulted in an INCREDIBLE time!  It really helps me to see where i can be if i continue to work hard like you have.  At this point I have found an enjoyable outlet whicih involve so many great people  like yourself which makes the weight loss secondary to something bigger. 

 

If I keep it up, I too can inspire someone to change their life, train harder and post remarkable times at triathlons.   You are proof.

I hope all is well in North Attlebury!!  We'll keep in touch (unless the Yankees cannot get out of the basement - I will disappear to suffer the humiliation in solitude)

I would have panicked with the tire issue before the race. Glad you got it fixed in time. Great job.

I don't think I'll run behind you or get to close based on your nature call.

I got cramps just reading your race report.  

Fantastic effort, and I've only got two words for you:  Hard Ware.   Cramp THAT!!!

Congratulations on a race well run. For an early season C race, I think your time was outstanding. I think you'll see some time improvements this year. It stinks you didn't get you award on time and announced, but glad you were able to collect some hardware. I hope those cramps aren't leaving you suffering this week with workouts. Good luck with your season.

Great Race....Awesome bike.  You sound like me on the swim....once you get going you do fine, but getting into the right tempo and pushing through the initial wall is tough.  Once we figure out how to get into the groove earlier, we will shave off some good time.

 

Hope you make it back to the race again next year.

    Woo Hooo...average over 20 on the bike. Awesome!!   On your C race no less. Too bad about the cramping.  At least it didn't stop you from finishing the run.

I can't believe you got a drafting penalty...whats with that?

Can't wait to see what you can do at Mooseman!
