Event warmup:

Typical Stretching
  • 21m 3s
  • 805 meters
  • 02m 37s / 100 meters

Haven't done any swimming in a month; and even then, I wasn't doing 1/2 mile distances. Happy with my performance considering...
What would you do differently?:

Get back in the water more.
Transition 1
  • 01m 3s

No wetsuit, so it was pretty quick transition
  • 1h 06m 49s
  • 19.5 miles
  • 17.51 mile/hr

Once again, training has been non-existant, so I went with consistant cadence to stay comfortable and have some gas once I hit the run.

Had been playing with my seat adjustment recently - bad idea. I was really uncomfortable in the aero position as there was too much pressure in my "area".
What would you do differently?:

Get more riding in.
Transition 2
  • 01m

Broke my glasses
What would you do differently?:

  • 32m 37s
  • 3.3 miles
  • 09m 53s  min/mile

Don't even want to comment - have never been passed this much in any race. :(
What would you do differently?:

Run Faster
Post race
Warm down:

Stretch - change into dry clothes - eat a sub

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:
