  • 1931 meters
  • 02m 28s / 100 meters

went out slow and esay- had no idea how I would feel afterwards and didn;t want to burn out on swim.
What would you do differently?:

Go harder next time.
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 3h 30m 49s
  • 56 miles
  • 15.94 mile/hr

goal was to finish with enough left for the run. Did that well. got a headached, as usual, about mile 35.
What would you do differently?:

Need to train for longer rides- do several over 59 miles, not just a few. Also, practice rideing harder for longer. Goal is to go faster next time, not just to finish.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 2h 32m 12s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 11m 37s  min/mile

Goal was to finish! I did. Walked through aid stations. Ran relatively slowly. pace was good.
What would you do differently?:

May try to train to run stronger. But a 2:32 half is only slightly slower than an average half for me.
Post race
Warm down:

Ate the fruit and piece of pizza. Sat in the shade for awhile. Walked bike back to hotel.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Goal was to finish, not go fast. Garmin died, so had I known I was so close to going under 7 hrs, I would have.

Event comments:

Took place at Disney- would like to have had better food at the end- it was not good. Beer would be nice! No music, no party atmosphere. Just finish and that's the end of it.
