2014 – Ventura Tri

Posted on Updated on

The Ventura TRI came and went despite the fact that I had picked up a chest cold. I am super glad I did it. It was harder than last year, but I had a strong swim and finished the job. This is an important point for me.

The CVMM guys Bill and Stephen, they both had very strong races.

My official time was 3:11:30                                             (2:44)


1.5K (.93 Mile) swim  – 27:43                                          (28:32)

40K (24.8 Mile) bike –  1:31:57                                     (1:19:00)

10K (6.2 Mile) run – 1:07:45                                           (52:43)



I will avoid excuses, but here are the facts. Chest cold persisted two weeks prior to the race with respitoray issues and general tiredness. I did not work out two weeks leading up until the race and was achy all over. I weighed 10lbs more than last year and in not working out like last year.

26 minutes slower

1 minute faster on the swim

12 minutes slower on bike

15 minutes slower on the run
