30 Bananas a Day!

LFRV comes first place in Delta Sprint Triathlon!

Heyo,

"People say I'm too skinny. I say they're too f***in slow."
-DR

I just got back from a wet, windy, and bloody cold sprint triathlon. I came first place in the 20-24 age group (and i'm only 19!) but still not sure where I came overall because the final results are yet to be posted...I'll update this blog when I see those...

I'd like to thank the 811 diet because over the past 12 days I haven't done much training at all and still had a great race. I biked twice, ran once, and swam 3 times in the past couple weeks but still managed to finish the race in 1hr 14min :D

10 minutes into the bike my feet were completely numb. I was cursing the weather and didn't know how I would be able to run-let alone slip my feet into my shoes. It took me 3km to finally get a good-solid-steady-fast pace going so I only truly felt strong on the last 2km. I ended the race with my signature sprint to the finish where the commentator said: "If Ted swam and biked as fast as he ran he's sure to have a great time!" ;)

My first sprint triathlon times:
750m swim 13min (aimed for a sub 12. There were 8 other people in my double sized lane though!)
20km bike 40min (right on target)
5km run 21min (was hoping for a sub 20 :( )


Nutrition: Before the race I ate 2 bananas and 2 oranges and drank/juiced(w/ my mouth [thanks for the idea Michael Arnstein]) 15 oranges. During the race I only drank coconut water. And after while I waited around for my PRIZE I ate 2lbs of dates. For dinner I'll have a big bag of spinach followed by 20-30 navel oranges :D

Stay fit,

TC

I'll let you know what my time is, haha it might be not so good...but hey we have to start somewhere I guess lol.
Yeah I would definitely love some tips and such, definitely. I really want to improve. When my mom was my age she ran like 5.5 minute miles (and people say I could be her clone, I don't really see the "twin" resemblance, but who knows haha). Maybe I could get there some day...or at least 7 minute lol.

Fred eh? I'll accept that.
Thanks Sami, and thanks asiris for the visuals!

Bristol, let me know what your 5km time is! If you have any questions about training or recovery let me know I'd be happy to help you improve your running :)

Wow awesome job!
I'm 19 too, and you're an inspiration!
I mean, I just jog for fun but I'm becoming inspired to try training hardcore and doing it right so I can try some races or something. Actually I am going to be in a casual 5k tomorrow...
Well anyway, awesome job! thanks for posting this :)

Great job Fred! I find the begining of a race tough, but once I get past a certain point I feel stronger too! I've never tried a triathlon...sounds fun! I'm working towards becoming more athletic.
