Event warmup:

not much of a warmup, I did stretch really well though.
  • 00m
  • 1640 yards
  • / 100 yards
Transition 1
  • 01m 51s

Transition was a muddy swamp.
  • 1h 13m 43s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 20.23 mile/hr

Big power numbers. NP 192, no short term Cp, one Cp at 1 hour which I think was really good race management.
What would you do differently?:

Try to push a little more, shoot for 205 or 210 Np. I went out too hard, backed off, then leveled off, should have brought it up from slow to fast.
Transition 2
  • 02m 19s

I don't think a dawdled at all, i did lose my sunglasses, had to do the run without them
  • 1h 08m 33s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 11m 02s  min/mile

walk jog after about mile 2.3. I didn't have the will to suffer. My hr was jumping up to 172 and I just couldn't get myself to feel normal. I think I popped on the bike, and couldn't get it back
