Tri Fit Racing

21 Posts tagged with the fit tag

One of the muddiest and roughest Xterra's I have done. I have the cuts and bruises to show. You know it's a tough race when they give you a Sog Knife as a trophy.

Super fast swim, followed by a muddy slip n slide ride on the Trek Superfly 100 thru the woods, over the bridge and up the hills. To finish it a wet run thru the mud puddles to the finish.

My good friend, Alexander, helped me with the mantra for this race: "Worry about what I can control, effort-pace-focus!"

Now its time for a vacation with family and friends.

Jesse Tubb and I rode into Xterra Ex2with a plan to pull a Shake in Bake. I went after the Tri Solo to chase more points to qualify for the USA Championship. While Jesse hit the Duathlon to chase a spot on the podium. Lucky it all came together for us. I took 2nd in the age group getting 67 points and Jesse nailed the 1st place spot on the podium.

This was my 3rd Xterra for the season. I was 2nd in the US point standings Atlantic region, only one point behind 1st place. Everything was set for a great race, course was dry, sun was out, the Superfly 100 was looking, and I was feeling fast. That might have just been the 2 large cups of coffee.

On the first lap of the swim I saw some nasty toes go by and knew right way it was Eric Sorensen. I jumped on his toes, knowing he would have a fast pace. I checked my pace time on Suunto t6d on the short run between swim laps. I was a little ahead of pace but felt good. I could not keep up with Eric and was on my own for the 2nd lap.  I hit T1 and jumped on my Trek Superfly 100and was out on the bike. The Suunto bike pod engaged and I was right on pace. I was confident going into the bike as I had done Ex2Aventures 9hr Cranky Monkey race on the same course 2 months earlier. I rode smart and had no problems. A quick dash in and out of T2 I slipped on my K-Swiss Keahou with the Sunnto foot pod. I was running down the 5 remaining miles. I took a moderate  pace for the first 3 miles. As mile 3 to 4 has you scrambling down rock's and crawling backup the other side. Then I opened it up for the run into the finish.

My nutrition was right on. I had a bar at the being of the bike and GU Roctane gel at the end of the bike. On the run I had a GU Roctane at miles 2 and 4. I sucked back a bottle or two of the course Gatorade.

Crossing the finish in 2nd place gave me enough points to be ranked 1st in the Xterra Atlantic region and 13th nationwide.

I found Jesse in 1st for the Duathlon age group and 2nd overall. We could not be happier with how our day went.

GU Energy send me a case of the mix flavor gels and GU Brew Electrolyte tablets. The mix flavors had some good ones and a few funky ones. I always throw a few extra ones in my jersey as you never know and the funky ones are always great give aways.

This will be my first change to use the Electrolyte tablets. I will let you know what I think in a few days.

IMG00039-20110522-1216.jpgI was 3rd out of water, crushed the swim in 11 minutes. My plan was to pedal smart, hold my position and save it for the run. 5 miles into the bike, I was 4th or 5th and boom....I flated the front tire. I rode it to the rim, changed it as fast as possible. Even a couple of minutes lost on a fast course like Reveille Peak Ranch is the difference between finish at the front or middle of the pack.

I still picked up some point for the Xterra series. Looking forward to the next race.

Thanks for being there:

Xterra Reveille Peak Ranch

Posted by TriFitRacing May 21, 2011

I'm headed out today for a pre-ride before tomorrows race. If you get the chance to ride at the Reveille Peak Ranch do yourself a favor and get out there. It's a great facility and some of the best single track around. A lot of trails have just one element to offer, twist, rollers, flat, climbs, etc... Not the Reveille it has a trail to offer whatever gets you excited.

This is my first Xterra for the season. I will use it to dial-in my equipment and get a feel for my fitness level. I will be racing on my new Trek Fisher SuperFly 100 29'er. Looks like the trail will be fast, flowing, rocking, with a few climbs. I'll set the bike up today as I go, but my guess will be a tight suspension for fast, flowy and climbs.

I want to thank Jamie at the Rpr for welcoming me and getting me point down the right trail.

Kimani and I pedaled into the Ex2Adventures 9hr Cranky Monkey race with a expectation to have fun. First or last as long as we had fun getting there. Between us we hammered out 11 laps of fun. I could not have pedaled with a better partner. We are already discussing what in next on the duo team race schedule.

Results: Overall 16th of 166. Age group 8th of 21.

I am excited to have GU Energy Labs to support my racing nutrition. If you have followed my story, Tri Fit Racing, I have always used the GU gels and Roctane's when training or racing.

With the start of my racing season begin with the Boston Marathon, followed with Xterra andHalf Ironman you can bet I will have GU in my pocket.

After losing 160lbs, going from 355lbs to 190lbs, I am very concerned about what I put in my body. GU has the right blend of nutrition for me to continue my weight loss program and keep me moving.
