GREEN MEMBER: Dian Fiala
EVENT: Historic McKinney Tri
CLASS: 40 – 44
RESULTS: 6th AG
LOCAL KNOWLEDGE/CONDITIONS: 2nd time to race this course. Flat bike/hilly run! Weather was great.
PRE-RACE STRATEGEY/WARM-UP: Followed usual routine and got in a short run and swim before race start.
PSYCHOLOGY: Used this as a training race, so I wasn't as nervous as usual.
LESSONS LEARNED: Two things: don't sign up for a sprint the weekend after a 70.3 and when the bike racks are wobbly, put helmet/glasses on ground. I put my stuff on my bike and when I got to T1 it was scattered!
FUTURE GOALS: More speed work in all disciplines to get faster! I improved my personal time by 5 ½ minutes this year, but it wasn't enough to podium! For sprints I really need to push harder!
FITNESS (hydration/nutrition/endurance): All good.
SOMETHING FUNNY: nothing really stands out!
