Open Water Swim 06-29-12

I am planning an open water swim on Friday evening at 6:30pm at 7 lakes state park. The beach there is quite long and straight so is good for swimming some laps. This is a casual affair where you can go at your own pace. If you have any questions drop me an email on the link at the bottom of this post.

Look forward to seeing you there.

Anyone Can Tri

This past weekend was the Anyone Can Tri triathlon and duathlons. Mike Brokenshire represented the Rhino's putting in a fine performance in the sprint to cross the finish line in 12 place overall and I believe 2nd in his age group. If anybody else was there please let me know.

Well done Mike!

Big Fish Race Report 

Sunday June 10th saw 4 Rhino’s turn out for the Big Fish Tri/Du at Big Fish State Park. It turned out to be a beautiful day, if a little warm.  While the air temp was nice and warm, the water was 71 deg F meaning that wet suits were still the order of the day for most people.

In the Sprint Tri (500m Swim, 13 mile Bike and 3.1 mile run) we had Dick Egan, Mark Hughes and myself, and in the Olympic Tri (1500m Swim,, 25mile bike and 6.2mile run) we had Dan Wilson.

Dick deserves a special mention as he finished in third place in his age group with a time of 1:39:47. Mark also deserves a special mention; he successfully finished his first Triathlon in a time of 1:22:26 and was 11th out of 20 in his age group.

Dan put in a good performance in his Olympic distance event finishing in 10th spot in his age group and completing another step towards his first Half Ironman in September.

As for myself I finished 13th out of 33 in a time of 1:18:33. My swim was, as expected, slow, I was pretty good on the bike and average on the run. My goal going forwards is to improve the swim portion of my race. This is where there is most potential to gain a minute or two. I think most triathletes feel the same, so look out for some open water swimming practice announcements.

 

Keep Triing
