Standard pre-race, all good.
Event warmup:

Short acclimatization in water
  • 1h 06m 39s
  • 3862 meters
  • 01m 44s / 100 meters

Was a very tough swim, too many people and very cold. Over 100 people pulled from water. No open water to swim for duration. Stayed relaxed and felt good.
Transition 1
  • 05m 29s

Hands were cold coming out of water so difficult time getting socks and shoes on so a little slow.
  • 5h 19m 3s
  • 180.25 kms
  • 33.90 km/hr

Went well. 2 bathroom stops (5' total). Rode pretty comfortable with easy spin up the hills. Thought it might be too hard for the run but took a little chance.
Transition 2
  • 02m 15s

Last bathroom break on the way out of T2
Good transition.
  • 3h 40m 28s
  • 42.16 kms
  • 05m 14s  min/km

Couldn't hold the last 5 miles. Started maybe a little too fast but needed to go for it. Had to walk off and on starting after last up hill.
