Pre-race routine:

Before the swim: came home from work, relaxed, short nap after an afternoon snack of yogurt with fruit. Did take an allavert (didn't know more than one in 24 hours could make drowsy, not a good idea afterall).
Before Sat events: Organized bags, double checked flat repair kit, checked list, loaded car, ate cheerios with fruit and a whole wheat bagel.

What would you do differently?:

I had strep throat this week and on ABT's since Tues, so overall it was good taking that into account.
Transition 1
  • 00m 38s

just a little disorganized, should have visualized it before doing it.
What would you do differently?:

  • 39m 55s
  • 12.5 miles
  • 18.79 mile/hr

great start, just over half way in, got a bit of nausea and had to slow pacee for deeper breathes to help this.
Transition 2
  • 01m 30s

Elastic laces were just a little too snug, had a hard time donning the right shoe.
What would you do differently?:

Not wait until last minute to change laces in my newer shoes.
  • 32m 9s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 22s  min/mile

first time I didn't cop out and walk some, I may have jogged quite slowly at first, but it wasn't walking! YEAH!
What would you do differently?:

more running with training, it is my weakness.
Post race
Warm down:

walked, drank more water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Swim events ran ahead of schedule, rest of event late (as typical) while waiting for the kids portion. Should just schedule the adult start time 45 min after the kids instead of 30.
