Schaumburg, Illinois

Schaumburg Park District
85F / 29C
Total Time = 1h 12m 39s
Overall Rank = 19/350
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 5/75
Pre-race routine:

Seperate transitions - dropped running gear, then set-up bike, didn't want to lose spot, so squeezed in 200 swim as warm-up and stretched on the pool deck.
Event warmup:

Swim and stretch
  • 06m
  • 437 yards
  • 01m 22s / 100 yards
Transition 1
  • 02m

Sat down on stool, didn't have everything perfectly set-up - shoes not open, jersey over tool, too much fumbling.
  • 43m
  • 15 miles
  • 20.93 mile/hr

Almost lost it in a corner where the pavement meets the curb, had to unclip to save from calling....cost time.
Transition 2
  • 01m 30s

Too frazzled, trying to catch breath - not seamless.
What would you do differently?:

  • 20m 9s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 06m 30s  min/mile

Good run, knees and back felt good, went w/o socks and that worked.
What would you do differently?:

I would forgo the hat, since I took it off and it fell, slowed me down.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched after hydrating.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Transitions, near miss bike crash, and losing the hat during the run.

Event comments:

The water stations were tough - hard to slow down to grab a dixie cup of water, eventually just asked volunteers to throw it on me.
