23rd Annual Tri For Fun #2

August 20, 2010 —

This post is pretty late, but I figured it is still good to post for record keeping. Back in July, I did the Tri For Fun just to get back in the grove. This was my first Tri since Wildflower, yet I had barely preped for the race at all. I think I rode my bike twice in the week before the race. Pretty much a poor showing on my part.

I'm pretty familiar with the course, having done it a number of times.

SplitDistance (mi)Time (h:mm:ss.ms)Pace
Swim0.2277:1529:10 min/mi
Swim to Bike Transition1:39
Bike to Run Transition1:17
Run3.125:048.16 min/mi

Not the blowout improvement I was hoping for (I only improved by 8 seconds off last year's time), but improvement none-the-less. I think I stayed up way too late the night before and was super tired during the run. I just sort of lost energy and couldn't finish strong in the run, which shows as it was one of my slowest run performances yet. Serves me right for sorting pictures late into the night.
