Pre-race routine:

entertain the night before..go to bed at 1030..up at 0230..out of bed at 0300..cereal c milk and nesquick...big coffee...sip on 24 Gatorade on 1:30 min drive a nutricious bar
Event warmup:

mild stretching, jogging,
  • 20m 31s
  • 880 yards
  • 02m 20s / 100 yards

Thought I was swimming better. Question if the course was longer. I don't think I was better than 2 min/100
What would you do differently?:

working on high catch-
Transition 1
  • 01m 52s

put jersey on in T1..will get tri jersey or tri suit for shorter non wetsuit race
  • 49m 49s
  • 19.5 miles
  • 23.49 mile/hr

Felt B12 gone for warranty assessment to CA. Rode Cannondale Six with Profile Air Stryke extensions, HED3's and Lazer Aero Helmet...if felt good. I don' know that I would have been faster on Tri Bike...It may be that I'm lower on the C-Dale. I have to reach an extra ~2" for the straw..that could be it. Would like to re-race the B12 in similar conditions to gauge
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 8s

I didn't waste any time...I think this is as fast as it gets for me...
  • 27m 43s
  • 3.3 miles
  • 08m 24s  min/mile

gut was cramping first .5 miles. Should have pushed harder through it and first 1.5 miles. Running at 156-158 HR second half

Event comments:

Post race- ran out of sports drink and nearly out of water. Subs were good. They played Christian praise music before the race..Nice touch on a Sunday.
