Green Member: Tim Hartley
Event: Toyota US Open - sprint
Class (yours): Clydesdale 40 +
Results: 3rd place
Local Knowledge and Conditions: Great day for a race.
Pre-Race Strategy & Warm Up: Stay away from the sharks. Find my bike rack marker. Keep a good rythym on the run start.
Psychology: Remember that I'm racing for fun. Injuries this year meant that I couldn't achieve my goals. But, I can still be thankful and enjoy one last race.
Race Break Down -
Swim - Good start. Kept away from the sharks. Sighted real well - very little extra distance.
Bike - Liked the hills at the start. Got into a decent cadence but just didn't have the power or stamina today.
Run - Surprised myself! This race was the third time I'd run since July 5. Felt great - during the race.
Lessons Learned (Or Re-Learned): There is no substitute for training.
Future Goals (include skills executed well and skills needing improvement): Work this off-season for a solid base for next season. Improve swimming form and speed.
Fitness (endurance, nutrition, hydration):
