Musselman Triathlon
90F / 32C
Total Time = 1h 16m 29s
Overall Rank = 6/600
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 1/32
Pre-race routine:

Pancakes at the hotel then drove to the venue to set up transition. Was pretty excited to see that the DoubleMussel athletes got a special rack!
Event warmup:

Easy jog, easy spin, and then a few strokes swimming out to the deep water start line.
  • 11m 40s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 34s / 100 meters

Really great swim for me. I was able to find some fast feet early on and held on for dear life. The pace was tough, but I knew if I dropped off I would slow WAY down.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 27s

Solid T1, got the wetsuit off easily and had a nice flying mount
What would you do differently?:

  • 42m 42s
  • 16.1 miles
  • 22.62 mile/hr

Wanted to average closer to FTP (still hit 207, 211 normalized), but this was still a good effort. Stayed pretty consistent throughout.
What would you do differently?:

Left a few watts out there
Transition 2
  • 00m 57s

Fastest T2 in the race
What would you do differently?:

  • 19m 43s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 06m 22s  min/mile

It was getting hot and it doesn't seem like I could improve my place in the race after a couple early passes, so I just kept a hard pace, but held back a little with tomorrow in mind.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, got some food and drinks, packed up. Post race massage from the PT student was excellent.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing really

Event comments:

So cool to be back here celebrating the 10th anniversary of my very first triathlon. And all these years and experiences later, this still is one of the best out there.
