New Boston, Michigan
United States
Total Time = 1h 39m 9s
Overall Rank = 97/125
Age Group = Clydesdale
Age Group Rank = 7/14
Pre-race routine:

Had a Strawberry/Banana Protein Shake. Also learned I had a flat tire before the race. This was after I change the flat the night before. I put a new tire on and learned it pushed my tire out which can dangerously close to falling out of fork. Need to get fixed!
Event warmup:

None, just a little soft stretching.
  • 27m 59s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m  min/mile

I had a good run.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 6s
  • 40m 32s
  • 12 miles
  • 17.76 mile/hr

I chose to go for efficency oppose to muscle. Use a lower gear to save legs for run.
What would you do differently?:

Pushed a little harder. I wanted to average 18mph.
Transition 2
  • 00m 50s

I felt like this was a good transition.
  • 28m 37s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m 12s  min/mile

Started to feel cramps set in at beginning of run. I ran conservative until I felt like the cramp would not come on.
What would you do differently?:

Probably drink more water and not sprint to bike finish.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I need to bike more. Running has improved but need to get biking hours in!

Event comments:

Love doing this race to start the season.
