Lake Geneva Bigfoot triathlon 2010

Good stuff. I did my first Olympic distance today, and I think I can really start to like these. Long enough where it's challenging and you can hammer down a little while, but not too long where you get bored and your brain shuts down. This race seemed pretty well organized, and the weather was almost perfect, surprisingly.

Scott and I were in the same starting wave, and lined up in the middle of the swim. You could actually stand the whole way which was nice, because at the start there were so many people bumping while they were swimming all crooked and sheeit, and it was hard to get in a rhythm. At least it was fair and no dirty racing out there, there was quite a bit of bumping and kicking, but nobody was playing dirty, so I got to mix it up with everyone. I kind of liked it actually, it was more like a street fight, and I was doing well. Finished the swim about a minute faster than Scott, at 21 minutes for .9 miles. Swam straight and felt good.

I put on socks for my first transition, so I was a little slower than Scott, but I did see him in T1 for a few seconds, which sucked. I wish I could have been gone by the time he got there so mentally he would have felt a little defeated.

I got my bike out first and he was right on my tail. Scott and I kept trading places the whole way, making sure not to draft so we didn't get DQd. That was the hard part, because I was so used to road riding. After a while I just kept a 4 or 5 bike length distance so I didn't have to think about it much, but I sure didn't want him to get away from me, so I kept him close. Man oh man were we frickin' haulin'! Some of these tri guys can't ride a bike to save their lives! We averaged somewhere around 24.5 mph the whole time, even with the hills, and sometimes we were going over 30 on the flats. We passed about a hundred people at least like they were standing still. That was FUN. I was dropping the hammer, but I still kept some in reserve, because my average HR was only 167, which is fairly low for me in a typical race. If I had an actual TT bike I could have gone way faster I think. I was in the drops most of the time except for the hills, but the aero effect was hitting me on higher speeds. Compared to Scott's aero Cervelo, TT bars, Zipps and disc rear wheel, I'm surprised I was able to stay with him. 25 miles in 58 minutes, but I'm guessing it was a tad shorter or something because the math doesn't add up. A quick look at the results showed Scott and I had the 2nd and 3rd fastest time in our age group missing 1st by only 10 seconds.

T2 was fine for me, and I got out a bit faster than Scott who had to put socks on, but he was quick and we started out the run pretty much together. I had hoped all my running in the last month might pay off here, but no such luck. He started taking off on me, and I couldn't hang. He put 3 minutes on me during the run, so he wound up beating me by about that much. I averaged around 8.75 minute miles, to Scott's 8 even. Still we both sucked compared to these tri freaks. I'm sure they were saying, "These cyclists can't run to save their lives!" Better than the last tri, where I could only do 9 minute miles for 4 miles and was ready to die. This time, it was 6 miles, and I was still pacing myself a bit, so the run was tolerable, but still some work to be done. It was a trail run, so that made it harder, plus with the light rain we had during the run the trails were muddy as hell in some spots, like the warrior dash covered in slippery mud. I could barely get up some of the hills, like they were covered in ice. 52:28 for my run. Meh.

Overall, not a bad finish I guess, though it sucks to lose to a friend. If I could have kept under 8 minute miles I would have been satisfied with my run. Once I get running down I should be pretty fast at these, so I have my work cut out for me in the next few months. Great race, and I will probably do this one again. On a side note, Jesus H Christ are the women TOYT! Tons of bangin' bodies in bodysuits going on at these triathlons. I would probably go just to watch the chicks and drool at the ridiculous TT bikes! I think I finished 61st overall, if this printout is correct. No idea how many racers were there, but it seemed quite a few. Anybody thinking about doing a tri, this would be a good one to do, being able to walk the entire way for the swim, and all the miles were marked so you could see your progress. My total time was 2 hours 15 minutes.

AWSOME!!! You and Scott could really do well at this sport!!! You both did really well for your second tri, that's for damn sure. The two of you with your HUGE cycling base and quick learning curves are coming up quickly. These tri guys have something to be scared about. If you stick with I think I could help you with the running part. I've taken a lot of advice this year from some of the tri guys I met that I could pass on. Get through your HIM and we'll talk. You're on the right track for that right now. But after that, if you really want the running there are things you should change about how you're training it IMO. But that's just my opinion......who know's if you want to hear it or not. You'll need to help me come up on the bike and the swim if I ever want to be able to mix it up with you two. I got a feeling I got a looooooong way to go!! When we start riding again I'll share some of the stuff the tri guys helped me with.

Nice job!!

Thanks dude. Yeah, I'm gonna need some help in the run. I have the cardio and the muscle, but for some reason I just can't put it all together yet. Scott thinks my form sucks, which is probably true, because I run like a runningback and don't "float" like some of the other people I see run. I will take you up on whatever tips you have for me. Plus, I'm gonna see if I can go to a running clinic where they watch your stride and make suggestions on how to improve. Yeah once I get through with this crazy HIM I am gonna work on my running hardcore. That is truly my weakness right now, and costing me big. You'll get there in time, but you have a decade of cycling to catch up to me. If you stay with it steadily, you can get there pretty quickly I bet.

Results are up, which suck the way they display them, and they have each place per discipline the same, which I'm sure aren't correct. It says I finished 58th overall now, out of around 600 or so. Pace was actually 24.4 on the bike, 8:27 on the run. Bested by two chicks too it looks like! Looks like I got top 10 or less on the bike overall, and not by too much. I need a TT bike!

Wow CP, thats a great time on a normal road bike.
One question, why was the bike only 24.xx miles?
The Olympic Tri I did last month was 29 miles... Weird.

Are you ready for Racine?

The "scenery" seems to depend on the event. Last one we went to seemed to be populated by (very) average Joe's. There were maybe 3 hot chicks.

Thanks X. Man if there was any way I could manage to get a TT bike for Racine I would do it. Everybody says they are SO much faster than a regular bike, even Scott, who usually lies right to me to save face. So they must help. No idea on the distance, which my Garmin actually said 23 something, and the race had it listed as a 25 miler. It seems all these smaller tris are different as far as distance, even though they stick to a similar distance, so your times can't be compared from one to the other. Yep I'm as ready as I'm gonna be. Not really looking forward to it actually, just going to finish it to say I did it. I don't think it will be any fun going for that long, especially with my attitude towards running. The swim will be fine, the bike will be good, and the run will suck. I don't think anything at this point will change that outcome. I am actually more looking forward to my next Olympic tri and somehow working on my running more. Once I figure out how to run I will enjoy these a LOT more.

the guy is a stud. He also won the Galena tri overall this year and took 3rd at the quad cities tri.

this is his first year of actually trying.

he is the community college cross county running coach and he used to run in college as well. He normally runs low 5 minute miles and is one hell of a bike too. I can keep pace with him on the bike but he destroys me on the run.

Hmmmm. He should offer some sort of pro bono coaching service to runners with massive potential.

Well, another great race. They really put on a show at this one. Tons of people, and fairly well organized for this size race. Competition seemed even faster than last year, and results showed.

No warm up, which probably wasn't too smart, but I didn't feel like doing much of anything until I had to. Started out the swim uneventfully, and settled in. HR was low and steady, and I was taking it easy with no issues, which usually happen on the starts, so it was nice, for a while.

Almost halfway there were a few slower swimmers from the wave in front of me, and we got in a group for a minute. There was another swimmer on my left pretty close, and when I went for a breath on the left he accidentally slugged me right in the jaw. Pretty nice shot actually. I knew it was an accident, so I didn't retaliate, and just moved a bit to the right.

Just after that, there was another guy who must have been trailing me from my wave and was on my right. Out of nowhere he just pushes my shoulder to move me over. Pretty deliberate. Not sure why he did that but I pushed back and got his head. I didn't see him after that.

After the turn, the sun was directly in my eyes now, and my goggles were filled with water from all the battling, so I couldn't see shit on the side, and only a bit when I sighted forward. All the swimmers were so spread out now, and we had the other waves coming toward us too, so I just kept seeing tons of people all over the place. There was a guy on my left I was pacing with, so I just stayed next to him, because when my head was in the water, I could see him pretty well. Apparently, we both swam left and into the swimmers coming towards us. I pile drove somebody head on, and we hit pretty hard on our shoulders. Not cool. Obviously my fault, so I felt bad, but not bad enough to stop. Rest of the swim was as expected.

I thought I had a decent swim, but maybe not, I'm not sure. It felt longer than last year, even though it was listed as the same distance. I was 6 minutes slower than last year, so not sure what's up with that yet.

On the bike, it was as expected. I screamed past everybody and was pacing myself pretty well. A few dudes thought they had something for me when I passed them, but once they showed their wheel I hammered down a bit more and left them behind. Bike was strong and solid. Next year the disc wheel and Zipps should put me on top. I wound up finishing 8th overall in the bike, and only 1 minute behind the overall fastest bike time. Next year. Next year...

I used my Speedfil hydration bottle for this, and I love it. I need to adjust the hose a bit, but it works very well. I didn't drink as much as I should have, and I knew it. My stomach wasn't feeling too well after the swim, probably because I drank so much lake water. I only ate one gel the whole race, and only drank equivalent to one water bottle the whole race too. Not good.

My transitions went quick, and I am getting better at these for sure. The run started out OK, and for the first couple miles I felt fine. My kid was there with me and was running with me for the first 2 minutes screaming at me the whole time. "no pain no gain" and "pain is temporary but failure lasts forever". Little smart ass. No wonder I call her "Mini Me".

Thankfully she couldn't follow me into the woods, and I settled in to what seemed like a decent pace, between 7 and 8 minutes per mile. The first couple miles felt alright, but after that my dehydration started catching up to me, and it was downright painful the entire remaining 4 miles. HR was skyrocketing, and it was all I could do to keep running and not walking. Man that hurt, once again. I really need to work on my running, and next year I'm chilling out on the biking and training for a marathon. That oughta do it. Everybody kept passing me on the run praising me for my bike ride, but still they were passing me on the run. Nothing like working backwards during the run. That sucks.

Overall, I did OK. My bike time was faster than last year, and so was my run, but my swim was much much slower, so I'm not sure what happened there yet. I got 8th out of 67 in my age group, and 69th overall out of 583. Time was 2:19. I beat Scott pretty handily, and another guy who I know from my daughter's tri team that does a lot of these including Ironmans, so I was happy about that.

Special props to Tony who did his first tri ever, and an Olympic one at that. Didn't have any issues and finished the whole thing no problem. Nice work dude.
