Tri-Rock Lake Geneva Tri

Recap from Tri-Rock Olympic distance.
First off, I had a SUPER GREAT RACE and was a TON of fun. I went into the race a bit dehydrated and knew it. Just too much going on in personal life to get proper nutritional training in and on track.

Like a few others I know this was my first crack at Olympic distance Tri, which is .93 mile swim (my longest swim to date), 24.8 mile bike (my strong point) and a 6.2 mile run (now my weakest link or the three events). There were 532 to participants with a 169 females and 363 males
I know was going to be in trouble when I got a cramp in the leg part way though my swim, but I had an AWESOME swim by my standards and was out of the water in 33:34 and according to my Garmin 910xt I swam 1.09 miles. Lake Geneva was a beautiful lake to swim in as was very clear and awesome, almost felt like sightseeing the bottom of the lake floor. It felt so effortless and I owe to my swim coach and friend Sue Donley.

Onto the bike my strong portion of the three events. I got and took my 3 Hammer endurolytes almost right away as wanted to stop the cramps for the bike portion and hope would stay away for the run but no such luck. In the end, I drank both my Cytomax filled water bottles and finished 57th overall with avg speed of 21.5 mph on the bike and I was not on a Tri bike either. I owe my trainer Chris Lombardo props for the bike endurance and The Bike Haven for the bike and maintenance.

The run, oh the run, let’s just say that I need work on the run and know it. I was happy with my run, even after watering a tree 3 miles in, LOL. Running a 10:01 minute mile pace over the 6.2 miles will not win the foot race and was almost dead last overall, but I really don’t care. Do I want to improve my run game, YES I do and it will come in time.

Overall, I had a SUPER GREAT RACE time and an awesome event, but could have done without the cramping in the legs, but it is what it is...
