Pre-race routine:

Breakfast: 4 pks of oatmeal, banana, almonds and water
Event warmup:

Gel 45 mins prior to race
spun on bike for about 5 mins to loosen legs and make sure starting out I was in right gear
jogged for 5 with few sprints
  • 05m 43s
  • 400 yards
  • 01m 26s / 100 yards

Caught a guy at the 275 point and wasn't really able to pass till last 50
What would you do differently?:

Not sure, paced myself well, could have gone a bit harder but with that guy there wasn't much I could do so just accpeted it.
Transition 1
  • 02m 24s

It was cold and being wet and trying to get socks, gloves and Long sleeve jersey on was a challenge to say the least.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure, hope for warmer weather?
  • 45m 30s
  • 16 miles
  • 21.10 mile/hr

Had some bloating issues but that went away. Sipped on water every few mins, took gel at mile 6.5 and stood up last 2 miles pedaling to really stretch my legs. Bc so cold and windy, thighs were really tight most of the way, especially when I would begin to hammer it on an uphill.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, could have gone slightly harder I imagine but with my legs feeling the way the did, I wanted to make sure to run strong so ...
Transition 2
  • 01m 9s

replaced shoes (tying shoes was difficult but that was due to fingers being numb.
  • 19m 40s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 06m 20s  min/mile

Legs were tight and heavy until the last .75 mile and that point I was all out sprinting. Until this point I was going as fast as my legs would let me. FELT GREAT ABOUT THIS RUN!! Was over 1 minute faster than my run on monday when simulating this TRI.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure, not much I could do with legs
Post race
Warm down:

walked, stretched and pounded some bananas.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I was physically prepared for distance but cold weather was not fun in T1 and T2 and bike.

Event comments:

OK race, no drink stations on bike (which you shouldn't need) and 1 drink on the run at the turn around point. Fun race and would def do it again.
