Pre-race routine:

Poor sleep.
Cheerios, banana, electrolyte drink 3 hours before race
GU pack 30 min before race

Event warmup:

  • 14m 49s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 59s / 100 meters

Good swim. Lots of wading.
I can go faster but it was really congested as we caught up to previous wave.
Transition 1
  • 02m 32s

bit of a run from beach hence longer time.
Noticed bit of a stomach ache coming out of water.

  • 20 kms

ok ride. I need to push myself more.
What would you do differently?:

Push harder. Get better hydration system. Get aerobars
Transition 2
  • 01m 27s

a bit slow. Stomach was killing.
  • 34m 14s
  • 5 kms
  • 06m 51s  min/km

a disaster. I had set myself up with a good swim and bike. My legs and lungs felt good but my stomach was a mess. I had to walk, stretch, almost puke, almost use washroom but not finishing was not an option. End of the day I got it done missing my run goal by almost 9 minutes.
What would you do differently?:

Need to investigate GI issues.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I was really disappointed. This was the first time I really missed a goal badly. I will learn from this and use this experience to make me better. I realize that this happens to all athletes at some point.

Event comments:

great event and location.

It was unfortunate that the guy in the Oly passed away. RIP
