I have just had my best (sprint) race yet, but the times for all 3 disciplines were not what i achieve in training, so simple question, are your PB's achieved away from the bright lights (as Mohammed Ali would say) or do you pull out the performances on race day?

If your best happens only in training and not in competition there's a word for that.

Choking.

So yes I pull out the best on race day.

Nope I'm a choker, well documented panicer.... If I'm still swimming at 8h15 tomorrow morning I've done it again...

err are you doing all 3 disciplines together in training.

If you get fast training times in a single sport in training, then, over the 3 you will be slower.

err and sprint distance - sorry - cant help there - I dont understand that distance
Its too hard for me

i love sprint distance and i put in some of my best run times on 5ks although i always find my swim is a bit of a let down as in a race theres 5 to a lane maybe and my records are done in an empty lane. Race day adrenaline seems to work for me, an example is the Dambuster triathlon where i took about 3 minutes off my PB over 25miles on the bike on the same course as i practice on quite regularly.
