Overall Rank = 37/770
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 5/74
Pre-race routine:

Continental breakfast
Event warmup:

Swam 200 yards to loosen up.
  • 08m 22s
  • 600 yards
  • 01m 23s / 100 yards

Tried to keep the swim easy so I wouldn't have my heart rate shoot through the roof at the start of the bike. That I did - kept the effort real easy. Gave up the AG win, but a bike split is what I was really after in this race.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 50s

14/74 here. Not bad, not great.
What would you do differently?:

  • 40m 14s
  • 16.2 miles
  • 24.16 mile/hr

Put up a very good bike split. Slow start and coasted too much at the end, but other than that a good effort. Without the slow bookends I was chugging along at 24.4mph. Aimed for 250w average and measured out at 249. No complaints there.
What would you do differently?:

Better start and finish.
Transition 2
  • 01m

11/74 here, so pretty decent. Could get a little faster here, though.
What would you do differently?:

Need to learn to get feet out of the shoes and leave the shoes on the bike.
  • 22m 54s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 38s  min/mile

Given the lack of run training lately I'm not terribly surprised. And I left a lot out there on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Train more.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Run training.

Event comments:

Great race. Hit the 24mph I was looking for on the bike, so that was a big accomplishment.
