Pre-race routine:

Stayed in Marble Falls the night before. Slept 2 hours only.
Wheat bread with nutella, bannana, gatorade, water.
Event warmup:

Run and stretch
  • 14m 51s
  • 1000 meters
  • 01m 29s / 100 meters

Held a good tempo. Weird round first buoy and need to navigate better.
What would you do differently?:

Backstrokes around buoys
Transition 1
  • 01m 4s

Left shoes on bike again and it worked well. Still struggling with my bearings after exiting water.
What would you do differently?:

Swim/bike practices?
  • 1h 07m 6s
  • 23 miles
  • 20.57 mile/hr

First hill put me into distress. I was very reserved over the rest of the bike ride and felt too good by the end.
What would you do differently?:

I would have payed a little more attention to the course profile and take it out a little harder knowing it was mostly downhill on the way back.
Transition 2
  • 00m 54s

Love my Zoot shoes but they have been pretty difficult to put on in the last two races when my feet are damp. This usually leads to calf cramping before the run.
What would you do differently?:

More body glide on my shoes.
  • 32m 26s
  • 4.4 miles
  • 07m 22s  min/mile

Was anxious about the distance and held a good tempo that would keep me from blowing up. Was happy with my time but know that I should be able run a faster pace by now.
What would you do differently?:

Run with a higher tempo/pace
Post race
Warm down:

Short run and lots of fluids

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Longer distance than I have done in the sprints

Event comments:

This race was my third of the season and overall. It was a tough race but a good challenge for me.
