PB shake at home, PB and j sandwich about an hour before race. Set up transition and waited around

Stretched gluts while sitting in car. Not much else
  • 14m 25s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

Water was really cold. I thought I would have more trouble keeping my face in the water but it was OK. I sighted well and stayed on course the best I have ever done. There were 5-7 people from the previous wave hanging on the last turn buoy when I got there of course they started swimming again by the time I was rounding it so I was stuck in traffic for a bit but managed to pass most of them.
What would you do differently?:

For once I can honestly say NOTHING! Finally got over my white lake swim mental break down
Transition 1
  • 03m 16s

Slow transition. Was really uncoordinated because of the cold, lost balance trying to get wet suit off. Still haven't mastered getting my socks on. Put on ls bike jacket because I thought I would be cold on the bike
What would you do differently?:

Didnt need jacket but never got hot. Maybe try going sock less
  • 47m 21s
  • 14 miles
  • 17.74 mile/hr

Fastest bike time for this race but still not fast enough.
What would you do differently?:

Train more on bike
Transition 2
  • 01m 23s

Changed Harmon over to run while on bike. Went better for transition
I put t shirt on over tri shirt because I have to pull it down all the time. Took a few extra seconds but made for more comfortable run
  • 24m 21s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 50s  min/mile

Felt pretty good on run last mile was good
Post race
