Transition 1
  • 02m 27s

This was the first Transition I had ever done, I think I was a little bit slow I couldn't get my race jersey on since I was kinda of wet. I tried to get my HR down so that I could concentrate on put my socks and shoes on for the ride
What would you do differently?:

Consider not wearing socks and gloves on the ride

I flet that I crushed the bike, I have never rode so comfortably and flet like I could push hard without even trying. I remember Lance Armstrong saying one time it flet like there wasn't even a chain on the bike today. I flet a little like that, but I knew I had to push on the bike because I am weak in the run
What would you do differently?:

Push harder
Transition 2
  • 01m 23s

Good transtion my legs felt good after the ride
What would you do differently?:

Put on my race number
  • 25m 15s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 07s  min/mile

A lot of the people that I passed on the bike, I think passed me on the run. A lady went passed me and she paced me back to the finish. I need to increace my running for Salem
What would you do differently?:

Push harder!!! Give it everything I had
