Pre-race routine:

Woke up early. Had a banana and cup of coffee on way to race.
Event warmup:

Walked to transisiton area to set up. Walked around event site, muching on a cliff bar and checking out the run course and muddy service road.
  • 07m 2s
  • 437 yards
  • 01m 37s / 100 yards

Swim went great. Got kicked in face trying to pass a slower swimmer around the 100m mark
What would you do differently?:

Seed myself farther towards the front to avoid having to pass other swimmers
Transition 1
  • 00m 57s

Transition went pretty well.
What would you do differently?:

Work on mounting bike faster. Practing flying mount.
  • 45m 30s
  • 15 miles
  • 19.67 mile/hr

Could not get heart rate to come down at all. Felt uncomfortable the entire race. Heart rate averaged over 170 for first half and barely came down to 160's second half of bike. Nothing I could do could bring heart rate down below 160...
What would you do differently?:

Work more on bike leg
Transition 2
  • 00m 52s

Could have been a little faster getting socks and shoes on.
What would you do differently?:

Practice socks more
  • 24m 18s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 51s  min/mile

Got off bike and legs felt like liquid concrete. Energy level on the run was non-existant. Might have had a lot to do with not being able to get heart rate down on bike leg.
What would you do differently?:

Work more on bricks.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around finish line area. Drank a water bottle and can of coke. Bought a few extras on sale

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I was half way through HIM training program and legs were feeling tired.

Event comments:

This race is a good one each year. Always has a very stiff competition but it is a good bike course that can test you. Top three finishers get a bottle of wine with race logo, always helps start a relaxing evening after the race with that.
