Pre-race routine:

I do all my long training prior to eating in the morning. I tried this for the first time in a race and feel it worked well for me.
Event warmup:

  • 26m 45s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 38s / 100 yards

Water was cold but did not effect me once the swim began. Had a little trouble taking deep breathes due to wet susuit. My sighting was not good. Found myself off course twice, so started sighting every third breath.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 03m 25s

Suit stuck of left heel. Took at least 30 seconds to get off and I was then totally out of breath.
What would you do differently?:

Relax and focus when taking off suit.
  • 1h 17m 58s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 19.29 mile/hr

Felt good on the flats and passed several groups but fell behind on the hills. Average speed was around 21mph going into the climb at the end. Took one corner too fast and would have hit a vehicle head-on if one had been there.
What would you do differently?:

More hill work leading up to the race.
Transition 2
  • 01m 36s

T2 went smooth
What would you do differently?:

Need to get some speed laces for the shoes
  • 57m 56s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 09m 20s  min/mile

Felt good start and found my running legs in the first 1/4 mile
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Nothing special, but I should have stretched. I'm very stiff the following day

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Being 61 yo

Event comments:

I love the venue. The course is challenging but not too hard. This was my 3rd year and I will be back.
