Niagara on the Lake, Ontario
22C / 72F
Total Time = 1h 37m 59s
Overall Rank = 439/537
Age Group = Men 45-49
Age Group Rank = 57/58
Pre-race routine:

Drove down with race buddy, so was up early (5am) and picker up buddy at 6am. Drove down and arrived on site at about 7:30am. Transition set up and registration was done and we were ready by 8:15. First wave to start at 8:30 and I was in 6th wave.
Event warmup:

Walking around the transition getting bearings etc. Light stretching.
  • 20m 23s
  • 4 kms
  • 05m 06s  min/km

Felt good and kept a good pace. Could have beaten the 20 minute mark if I hadn't stopped for water on the run course.
What would you do differently?:

Run straight through and hydrate in the transition.
Transition 1
  • 01m 44s

When got in transition, turned left instead of right and lost bike for about 15 - 20 seconds. Other than that, off with run shoes and on with bike shoes was ok.
What would you do differently?:

Really get to know the bike position from entrance to the transition from the run.
  • 49m 41s
  • 22.3 kms
  • 26.93 km/hr

Some parts of the road was rough tarmc and strong headwinds for half the route. Felt pretty comfortable on the bike, but probably could have pushed harder.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder
Transition 2
  • 01m 31s

Uneventful this time as knew where racks was.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe use cages for this type of race to eliminate the requirement for changing shoes.
  • 24m 42s
  • 4 kms
  • 06m 11s  min/km

Much slower, took longer to get into a nice rythm.
What would you do differently?:

More brick pratices
Post race
Warm down:

Light stretching, wandering the race area and getting food.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Need to push harder.

Event comments:

Good race, will consider doing next year after the Muskoka 70.3
