Pre-race routine:

Organized, relaxed. Easier than last time.
Event warmup:

Form run, easy jogs. Not much but got warm.
  • 39m 27s
  • 3 miles
  • 13m 09s  min/mile

Run felt good, didnt have to stop and walk at all. Thought I had an easy pace, in hindsight maybe too easy but this being first duathlon I didnt want to leave all there with another one coming later.
What would you do differently?:

Not much, maybe picked it up a little bit.
Transition 1
  • 01m 26s

Went good, wouldnt say I hurried through it.
What would you do differently?:

Would wore my clips
  • 58m 56s
  • 15 miles
  • 15.27 mile/hr

Just felt slow on the bike. Not sure why, maybe because I wasnt clipped in. 10 miles in both hamstrings "rolled-up" on me so that really slowed down my last 5 miles. Very high profile, caught a lot of drag.
What would you do differently?:

Clipped in.
Transition 2
  • 01m 41s

Both legs locked, had to walk into transition and ease into the run. dealt with pain from that the rest fo the 3 miles.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure. Nothing
  • 41m 36s
  • 3 miles
  • 13m 52s  min/mile

Hamstrings rolled-up could not really get a good stride, didnt have a really big impact on the run compared to the first 30miles, but I probaly could have hit that harder. Ran the last 200 yards with Joe and Abby - great great stuff.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Hugged my wife and children and walked a bit.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Used this as a heavy workout day, wasnt ready to go fast and didnt. I did cover a distance longer than I ever had, set some marks to beat in May and really left a lot out there.

Event comments:

Well organized, secure, and overall a great time.
