Pre-race routine:

got up at 3 and left the house with crew on tow by 430
got to race site early for packet and T spotting a very nice location
Event warmup:

stretch arms and test the water to see direction and strength of current
  • 20m 18s

  • 10m 09s  min/mile

How I could have run 5K in 20:18? Well, I didn't - it was a 2 mile R1
What would you do differently?:

prepare for the unexpected (storm, hail, strong wind)
Transition 1

very quick T1, everything in order
What would you do differently?:

perhaps practice leaving my shoes on the pedals and taking off with them there.
  • 38m 28s

i dropped the hammer at "go" and didn't look back. Must have passed about 20+ people, eventually started pushing along with another dude and we took it to T2 together
What would you do differently?:

train high gears
Transition 2
  • 00m

very good T2
only issue at getting off the bike, I still had one shoe on while the other was off (left clipped). This took about 3 secs
What would you do differently?:

practice quicker dismounts
predefine if shoes on or off
  • 29m 29s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 50s  min/mile

very tough run, legs felt fried and didn't respond to speed.
What would you do differently?:

train intervals and fartleks - speed work. Also need to do some weight for hams and front knee.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

second run, no speed

Event comments:

I love the fact that this is a series and you get to meet some of the same people from other areas who would not normally race in your destination. Weather did not cooperate with us today but the organizers really worked to make it safe for us.
