Comments:

I had a horrible time in the swim. My wetsuit was too tight. I had not adequately practiced with this wetsuit. I panicked. I did most of the swim as a backstroke. I did some freestyle and I was always surprised by how well it would go. I need to get over this hump.
What would you do differently?:

Comments:

I got stuck in the wetsuit. I could not get my hands out. I walked over to the race director who was at the swim exit. He freed my hands. I could not get the suit off my legs without getting on the ground. It was humiliating. I lost my goggles when I struggled with my hands
What would you do differently?:

I would have done more getting out while I was still in the water.

Comments:

The bike went well. I could have pushed a little harder, but it was very humid. I did not want to blow out my legs and become useless for the run.
What would you do differently?:

I wish I had fixed my cadence magnet before the race. I am trying to ride with a higher cadence but I think I slacked a little.

I should have slipped out of my shoes before the dismount line.

It was very muggy. I think I should have pushed a little harder.
Post race
Warm down:

I jumped in the lake.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Poor swim and muggy day.

Event comments:

I think this is a good small race early in the season that helped me understand what I need to work on as I prepare for Ironman Louisville.

The first time I ventured into the deep murky green lake and could not see the bottom my muscles tensed and my imagined fears surfaced. What exactly lies beneath?
