Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5, had a cliff bar. Stopped for coffee on the way to the race site
Event warmup:

Did a short swim just to get an idea of how warm the water was
  • 14m 34s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 56s / 100 meters

Had a great swim, forgot how it was to get bumped at the beginning. Sighted well, the only thing that slowed me down was the congestion at the turn buoys.
Transition 1
  • 00m 48s

Took a while to get into my shoes, forgot how to do it:)
  • 44m 58s
  • 15 miles
  • 20.01 mile/hr

Had a pretty good ride, bike computer did not work so just rode by feel.
Transition 2
  • 00m 53s
  • 27m 17s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 28s  min/km

Not a great run, decided to walk the hill that starts the second lap while I was doing the first lap, not a good sign. Seemed like I could not get my heart rate down, legs were not the problem.
Post race
