Pre-race routine:

Got up, ate breakfast bar and started hydrating.
Event warmup:

  • 05m 59s
  • 300 meters
  • 01m 59s / 100 meters

Not a great swim, not bad, either. Shoulder got sore.
What would you do differently?:

Train more.
Transition 1
  • 02m 53s

Got confused b/c I'd packed my tri top. Had difficulty connecting to pump so I left it in transition.
What would you do differently?:

Do better job organizing beforehand.
  • 31m 45s
  • 10 miles
  • 18.90 mile/hr

Only felt like the wind helped when going west. Should have gone faster, not sure what the problem was.
What would you do differently?:

Ride harder, maybe warm up and stretch more pre-race.
Transition 2
  • 01m 21s

T2 was pretty solid and straightforward, not much to write home about.
  • 26m 21s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 08m 29s  min/mile

Pushed pretty deep into the red zone, but finished strong and was able to kick pretty well for the last ~ 150 yards.
What would you do differently?:

Train more.
Post race
Warm down:

Reconnected to pump, met Colin after race, grabbed some grub and watched the rain come pouring in. We were lucky to get that race in.

Event comments:

Enjoyed the race in 2010, this one was even better. Weather was a bummer but the race itself went really well, I like the course and the pool swim. Great volunteers, much better transition area and overall better race than 2010. Will be doing it again in 2012.
