Figured we should get a race report thread going.
Today: Rumpass in Bumpass Sprint (750/12mi/5k).
Did pretty well. Seems like slow times overall. Swim was a bit long. Bike was windy plus they had the mount/dismount line about 100-150 yards from the timers....so lots of transition time got added to the bike. Plus, in poor shape...all of my speeds were lower than the olympic I did last September and it's only half the distance.
32/420 men, 5/42 in the 25-29. Got pipped at the line because I didn't listen to the person yelling at me from the sidelines. Either way, no points for 4th either, and was a minute+ off third.
Swim 13:40, 5/42, 47/420
Bike 34:59, 5/42, 40/420
Run 20:53, 8/42, 49/420
The running needs some work. Been spending all my time in the pool and on the bike. Need to be running at least a minute faster. Swimming also needs some work...haven't ingrained some of the new stuff I've learned into my stroke. All in all, not bad for the first race of the season. And a severe wake up call to start running more often.
Next up, practice race in May...then an 'A' olympic race in June.
