Pre-race routine:

Awoke at 5:30, two english muffins, cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee
Event warmup:

Mild stretching
  • 10m 9s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 16s / 100 yards

Been swim training more but my pace was slower than last season. Disappointing! Kept straight and swam freestyle most of the way.
Transition 1
  • 03m 4s

The more I rush the slower my transition times are.
What would you do differently?:

Just remain calm throughout transition.
  • 39m 20s
  • 12.6 miles
  • 19.22 mile/hr

Pushed the bike well. Some tri bikes passed me on the flats but i passed a few on the hills.
What would you do differently?:

Consider Aerobars.
Transition 2
  • 01m 20s

Went out the next day and bought quick tie laces for running shoes.
What would you do differently?:

Quick tie laces.
  • 24m 20s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 07s  min/mile

It was getting warm and muggy by the time I got to the run. Felt like I was carrying a fifty pound backpack at the start. There was a water stop 50 yards into the run. I rarely take water on the run course but this time I did. Seeing my run time when I finished I felt like it wasn't too bad considering how I felt at the beginning. Then I remembered that it was 3 miles not 5K. Too slow!
What would you do differently?:

Need a couple of brick workouts for this season.
Post race
Warm down:

Not much. Someone had a bike stolen out of transition. Not happy to hear that since I just retired my $300 25 year old Schwinn and bought a new Trek Madone.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training.

Event comments:

DQ Events put on good low key races. I do many of them throughout the summer.
