Age Group Rank = 6/35

  • 500 meters
  • 02m 05s / 100 meters

Felt like my legs were sinking the entire swim. Have to get more OWS practice in. Also had difficulty sighting. Ended up drifting to the right, which is unusual for me.
What would you do differently?:

Swim better, swim faster.
Transition 1
  • 01m 34s

Two main issues here - strap on helmet got tangled up, which lost me a couple of seconds, then dropped sunglasses as I was running out of transition. Overall, could have dropped :15-:20 off this time.
What would you do differently?:

Practice transitions more.
  • 42m 50s
  • 16 miles
  • 22.41 mile/hr

Smooth course. All of the turns slowed things down a little, and having the second lap turn coincide with transition made for a dicey point, but overall pretty good.
What would you do differently?:

Pedal faster
Transition 2
  • 01m 11s

Nothing out of the ordinary here, maybe a couple of seconds to shave, but overall pretty satisfied.
What would you do differently?:

Be faster
  • 26m 37s
  • 3.2 miles
  • 08m 19s  min/mile

Painful run. The PF that I have been fighting really showed the first mile. After that, things subsided to a strong ache. Should have been much faster here. About :45/mile slower than usual.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster
