first tri (Read 1948 times)


old Paratrooper

    OK, it was a super sprint but was more about learning to run a tri than anything else.  I had a great time and finished 250 yd swim, 7 mile bike and 2 mile run in 48:22

    Goal: 3 2  1more sprint tri this spring/summer and 2 Internationals in the fall--Half iron spring 2012

      congrats!

        Congrats Skypilot! So do you have any more tris on the schedule?


        Needs more cowbell!

          So are you totally hooked?

          • 2 olympic distance duathlons -- 6 days apart -- PR at least 1

          • 130#s (and stay there, gotdammit!)

            I'd like to try a tri, with about those distances for the bike & swim, but with longer run.  Minimize my weaknesses, you know.   Of course, no such beast exists.

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

              yes,  I am totally hooked, I'm doing a regular sprint at White Lake, NC on May 8th then other sprints for the summer planning to move  to olympic distance in the fall with the intent of a half at White Lake in next May

               

              Thanks for the encouragement!

                325th place or bust!

                  Congratulations!  Those short ones are a fun way to try one out and get your feet wet, so to speak.  Smile

                  PR: 5K 22:41, 10K 51:05, HM 1:59, Sprint Tri: done!

                    Did a full sprint today rather than the Super Sprint I did as my first one, felt like it went really well, I learned that my SCUBA wetsuit isn't designed for open water swim competition, it  functioned much like a parachute! but I had fun!

                      As long as you remember to take off your bike helmet before the run, it is a success. Bonus points for not leaving your swim goggles hanging around your neck during the cycle Smile

                      It's a 5k. It hurt like hell...then I tried to pick it up. The end.

                          just looked at the results, I was in the Master Clydesdale category and took 10th of 19.  If I had run Master Novice I would have taken 3rd in class, wouldacouldashoulda I guess my 1:36:35 for a first sprint length wasn't too bad....

                            No way man!  That's great.  good job.

                             

                              GREAT job! That's awesome! I hear the open water swim is really tough to adjust to. Keep up the good work!

                              I don't half-ass anything
