2013 – Malibu Tri

A great day in Malibu today as I completed my 4th Olympic Tri of the year with one more to go. Ed and I arrived early at 4:30 am and everything went well on setup. The weather was nice at 70 degrees with water temps at a chilly 59 degrees, but very manageable. All week long I have been fighting off a cold and also knee pains, which I now think is actually an IT band issue.  There were a total of 1,017 racers competing today.



Race Stats

My official time was 2:50:52

IT Band issue on the run, resulting in about 4 minutes off total run time due to this issue


1 Mile swim (actually 1.04) – 29:23

25 Mile bike   – 1:19 

6.2 Mile run – 56:41


Overall Place – 521/1017

Division Place – 86/163

Gender – 464/891

Swim Place – 398 ( 39%)

Bike Place 408 (40%)

Run Place ( 51%) 9:08 min/mile

Start time – 7:15am

Age Group -M 40–44



I stuck with the same fueling strategy as SB Tri, but was still weak on the run, for the most part I would say it was my issues with the IT band, but also I didn’t feel as strong. I had only worked out once in two weeks between SB and Malibu, so this could have contributed.
