The triathlon training blog of Phil Barnes

It's all about the photo


It doesn't matter how fast, or how slow you are. It's all about how fast you look in the photo. Exhibit A: Me at the Cornwall Triathlon yesterday. Slowest bike split ever = best bike photo.

Les Splits

1500m Swim: 30:50 (2:03/100m); T1: 2:18; 40K Bike: 1:23:21 (28.8km/hr); T2: 0:30; 10K Run: 48:43 (4:52/km)

Final Time: 2:45:11, 43/75 Overall, 11/14 M30-39

Analysis
  • Swim felt good, surprised so slow, maybe a tad choppy
  • T1 - slow, missed my rack took too long catching my breath
  • Bike, couldn't get my mojo going; slick and wet
  • T2 - fast
  • Run - felt good, didn't give up, kept running, dug into the suitcase of courage (just a little)
  • Overall - As good as I could have done. Didn't give up. Lost a bit of focus in T1.
