Eased off the pace a little bit
Transition 1
  • 02m 3s
  • 3h 24m 39s
  • 56 miles
  • 16.42 mile/hr

I was pretty wiped out by this point. Could not seem to get any momentum. Lack of training became apparent. You should be in Ironman shape to participate in this event.
What would you do differently?:

Train more.
Transition 2
  • 01m 52s
  • 2h 28m 37s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 20s  min/mile

Lots of walking up the hills. Even on the downhill sections had to slow the pace down. It was an experience to say the least!

Event comments:

This is a fun weekend of racing, but I was not in shape for it. Would like to try it again sometime with more deposits in the training bank.
