Pre-race routine:

Nothing specific. T2 set up for running, biked to T1 and got ready for the swim
  • 22m 30s
  • 820 yards
  • 02m 44s / 100 yards

This was a longer swim then my first Sprint Tri. It was intimidating but I feel like I did a better job then my first one. I probably did the entire first half complete front crawl. My second short swim aroung the two outside markers was done with back stroke. Last 1/3 of race was done with combination strokes - front crawl, back stroke, side and breast.
What would you do differently?:

I have to remember to use the de-fog application on my googles. I also have to do a much better job sighting - I stink LOL - and I need to trust myself that I can swim these distance front crawl.
Transition 1
  • 00m

What can I say - I am learning.
What would you do differently?:

  • 40m 23s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 18.47 mile/hr

I need to get better and stronger. I also need to learn how mucy energy I can expend on the race course. I feel like I am leaving some speed out there.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m

OK I guess.
What would you do differently?:

  • 27m 24s

I am leaving some time out there. I need to learn how fast I can go.
What would you do differently?:

Run more.
