Event warmup:

It was a normal tng day. The thursday before I biked 20 miles, ran 6 and then swam 1.8 that afternoon. Not much rest. Plus I was working the graveyard shift all night

  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

I was 2 in Clydesdale out of 12
What would you do differently?:

Warmup and not push so hard 2 days prior. My arms and body were very tired
Transition 1
  • 03m 7s

I was slow running with the bike due to narrow way of people going both ways infront of me and behind me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Need to get the wetsuit off faster and helmet on quicker.

1st out of the 12 in Clydesdale
My chain also came of the big ring when shifting down hill. Cost me a couple of minutes.
What would you do differently?:

Not have popped my chain and wouldn't have rode 20 miles on Thursday. Need to get some race wheels and not have a 11/23 cassette. Need a 11/27 or so.
Transition 2
  • 01m 46s

Came to complete stop and then hopped off bike. Need to get quicker and better. Also fumbled a bit racking my bike.
What would you do differently?:

Practice demounting the bike.
