Pre-race routine:

Wake up 3 hours before, eat banana and wrap with almond butter and jam. Drink two cups of tea. Take my time at transition. I like to arrive at least an hour before start time.

Basic stretches and swim warm up.

Transition 1

What would you do differently?:

I'd like to learn to jump on the bike with the shoes clipped in. Also want this to be under 2 min.

What would you do differently?:

Not sure really. I want to get my average up to around 34 for next season, but I'm not sure I would do anything different other than ride faster.
Transition 2

What would you do differently?:

I'd like to figure out running with shoes off.
