3rd Overall, Snake River Triathlon

Posted by Dave Erickson on Apr 24, 2011 2:07:23 PM


Last weekend I raced in the 6th annual Snake River Triathlon in  Lewiston, Idaho.   It was my third year competing.  In 2009, I raced as  a team with race director Mike Collins.  Mike did the 500 yard swim  (7:05) and I did the bike and run.   I finished the  12 mile bike course  in approximately 35:30 (20.3 mph average) and the 2 mile run in 14:57  (7:28 average).   Our combined finish time was 58:24, good enough for  2nd team overall.


Last year I raced it as an individual.  My swim time was 8:18, my  bike was 33:47 (21.3 mph average) and I did the run in 16:38 (8:19).  My  overall time in 2010 was 58:56, good enough for 22nd overall  individual.


This year was going to be different; I told myself.  I spent a lot  more time in the pool during the off-season and stuck to my bike  workouts and ran more consistently.  I had faith that my training plan  was going to pay off.
