Pre-race routine:

banana at home. On drive ate small pbj, 3 pancakes.

Event warmup:

Stood in bathroom line for 30 minutes, ridiculous. Just did some calisthenics.
  • 31m 49s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 56s / 100 yards

Good swim. I'm a bit bummed of the time, maybe I could have swam harder? But I think I swam fairly straight, so it wasn't zig zagging as the problem.
But I swam all the way through. Controlled breathing from the start and didn't freak out. Only did a few breath strokes to see where I was going when the sun was really bad, and kept my head down and just swam a lot better.
What would you do differently?:

Go harder?
Transition 1
  • 04m 50s

Another bad T1. This time I was looking for my HRM strap that I forgot to put on. Couldn't find it till after race. Should have just gave up sooner.
  • 1h 27m 4s
  • 26.1 miles
  • 17.99 mile/hr

This bike course is crazy. The hill was hard. In my last low gear in triple, standing up last 1/4 mile, but made it. Still not at a good bike fitness level, but did ok.
Transition 2
  • 01m 57s

I got both feet out of shoes on bike. I seem to have problems racking my bike. Other than that, it went well.
  • 49m 29s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 07m 58s  min/mile

Good run. Wasn't sure if I could keep up pace all the way through.
Post race

Event comments:

I had a great race considering it was my first Oly. I'm happy with my performance.

Bathroom craziness was just stupid.
