I expected this my run is way slow in trianing i run 10 minute miles so i knew about how the run would be
What would you do differently?:

I need to train thru the winter on my run! I also need to take in more electrolytes for cramping thankfully it was not a hot day

Warm down:

i felt like laying down but toughed it out

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Basically I had not done an olympic distance and in hindsight i could have pushed harder on the bike
