2014 – Ventura Tri

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.

Analysis

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
