Pre-race routine:

got to the race early enough to set up T area and relax a little with the team. No stress there
Event warmup:

able to get in the water for a couple of minutes just to get used to the gross murkiness.
  • 30m 31s
  • 1760 yards
  • 01m 44s / 100 yards

swim felt very good. had some dizziness the beginning of the 2nd loop
What would you do differently?:

swim faster
Transition 1
  • 05m 9s

this is a significant improvement on the past two races
  • 1h 29m 31s
  • 24 miles
  • 16.09 mile/hr

I'm so freaking slow but this pace is faster than my average.
What would you do differently?:

pedal faster
Transition 2
  • 02m 27s

This is my first racing changing shoes in T2 which added some time but I can work on that. I need to switch my laces to the ones that don't have to be tied. I was dehydrated after the bike so I needed to take some time to take in some liquids.
What would you do differently?:

change shoe laces, bring liquids with me going out on run.
  • 56m 24s
  • 6.5 miles
  • 08m 41s  min/mile

Ugh, this was pathetic. My legs were tired from Saturdays long run and I was tired in general plus dehydrated bc I didn't drink enough on the bike. My legs wouldn't move.
What would you do differently?:

I could have pushed harder.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Mileage was off and not crazy about the course loops.

My performance was okay but compared to the rest of the field I struggled. I need more practice on the bike and a better nights sleep the night before.
