View Member's Race Log View other race reports
Cultus Lake, British Columbia
Outback Events
10C / 50F
Total Time = 1h 51m 18s
Overall Rank = 3/~200
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 1/~20
Pre-race routine:

Had about an hour drive to the race site. Had plenty of time to get organized. I had Oatmeal and Flax seed with raisins for breakfast. About 2hrs before I had an Ensure. Then had a bite or two of a power bar when I felt some hunger before the start.
Event warmup:

5-10 min jog to get the heart pumping and body warm. Stayed out of the water.
  • 16m 58s
  • 1500 meters
  • 01m 08s / 100 meters

Very cold water. Got used to it after 500m but it was a shock to the face when I first jumped in.
The course was definitely short. No way I averaged 1:08/100m
Transition 1
  • 02m 20s

Horrible transition. I decided to wear arm warmers that took soooo long to get on. I should have just ditched them as it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. All well.
  • 1h 00m 18s
  • 40 kms
  • 39.80 km/hr

I rode hard but the legs felt great. No burning at all. Flew up the climbs. Made sure to drink as much as I could... HEED and Sustained Energy mix.
Transition 2
  • 00m 50s

Quick second tranistion. Nothing wrong.
  • 31m 21s
  • 10 kms
  • 03m 08s  min/km

Felt solid. Ran hard, pushing it the whole way. Had a gel in hand and tried to eat it but my mouth gets so dry I couldn't swallow it all. had to ditch half of it. was gaining on second place but just couldn't reel him in before the line.
Very happy with my time relative to others. Michael Simpson can hammer out some fast runs and i was only 1 second slower. I'm sure his max effort would have put him a bit faster, but I'm thinking not by much.
Post race
Warm down:

16minute run for cool down Nice and easy.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Some stomach cramping/bloating in the swim cause some discomfort. Probably didn't slow me down though. All in all I had a good race. Painfully slow transitions.

Event comments:

May need some adjustments to the distances but all in all it was a good race.

Wow, awesome result! You must be happy with it?! There were definately some distance issues, how long to you think the swim and run were?

Congrats on a great race!
