Pre-race routine:

Got here too early.
Swim
  • 14m 1s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 48s / 100 meters
Comments:

Rectangle courses encourage congestion.
What would you do differently?:

Seed myself higher.
Transition 1
  • 01m 28s
Comments:

This transition is overly spread out when it doesn't have to be.
Bike
  • 31m 20s
  • 10 miles
  • 19.15 mile/hr
Comments:

No one to ride with for 3/4ths of the course, soo many slow riders.
What would you do differently?:

i think I could tear this course up (for me) if i had folks to ride with. It is smooth for 75% and the downhill is more of an aid than a hindrance.
Transition 2
  • 01m 51s
Comments:

Slow. Tux Bros having the non-elites loop to get to their bikes is bs.
What would you do differently?:

Exaggerate my times so I get a preferred rack.
Run
  • 27m 44s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 14s  min/mile
Comments:

Passed lots of slow folks but shoulda/coulda done better.
What would you do differently?:

Push it. This course is easy.
Post race
Warm down:

Just chilled. Knew I should have done better.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Needed to breakthrough.

Event comments:

This is a good race because of the venue esp. the ride. I am suprised they couldn't find a better run course.

Tux Bos please starting posting your results on monitors in real-time. Waiting 1.5 hours for results to fully process is 2nd class. I thought I may have slipped
on the podium for clydes so I hung out. Tux Bros really needs to step their game up on some many levels.

At mile ten I heard a noise like I had gotten paper in my spokes or something. I looked but saw nothing but a few seconds later my rear tire blows out.

Are these races too close together to give me any sort of recovery? Will I be spent and unhappy racing back to back weekends and then again two weeks after that?

When I told my husband that I planned to work toward completing a sprint triathlon, he smiled and was supportive, but a bit disbelieving.

The challenge? The accomplishment? I want to do this because it is an opportunity to live life. The event is an indoor sprint triathlon. I get to experience the challenge on a safer scale.

This plan is designed to make you go faster. 3 workouts per week in each sport, 2 days of strength training and core work. The maximum volume is around 10 hours toward the end of the 12 weeks.

Since your “A” race is your marathon, which you stated in your question, this should be your main focus. I encourage you to taper a bit for the sprint distance triathlon.

Since I didn't have much time and since it's a super sprint, am I OK just go to at the training relatively hard through Thursday or even Friday?
