Pre-race routine:

Ate my oatmeal, drove hte 45 min to the race
Event warmup:

Rode 5 miles
  • 12m 32s
  • 860 yards
  • 01m 28s / 100 yards

First open water swim sinc elast Fall, had little expectaions. Started off well, stayed in a straight line to the first buoy. Was starting to tire, so really focused on form and made the next turn and was feeling better. Started catching swimmers from other waves by then and it got a bit crowded. Kept veering off to the right, but was constantly passing people. Made the last turn, and was all over the place, but made it in feeling OK. I was hoping for a 13;30, so beat that by a full minute, and couldn't believe I was 5th overall
What would you do differently?:

practice more open water
Transition 1
  • 03m 39s

Tought getting wetsuit off. Then was trying to put on my jacket, but it kept getting stuck on my writts. Finally slung it off and went without it. Walked up the hill for 90% of hte way. Should've been 30 sec faster in T1, easily.
  • 53m 28s
  • 17 miles
  • 19.08 mile/hr

Good effort. Felt like I kept it at race pace the whole way, but Npower was only 207, for an IF of 0.779. I thouhgt it would've been higher, although there were several long downhills, where I was cruising at 40mph.
What would you do differently?:

First ride on the race bike since last Fall, it was in need of a tuneup
Transition 2
  • 00m 27s

Went very smoothly. In and out quickly. NO issues.
  • 23m 57s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 47s  min/km

Run went good, better than expected. Iwas hoping for 7:45 pace, adn hit itt and felt good. Only 1 walk break at the 2 mile mark for abou t15 sec, otherwise, would've been faster.
What would you do differently?:

Didn't do a single brick run in the leadup to the race. Should've done several
Post race
Warm down:

got cleaned up and drove home

Event comments:

Nice early season race. ‘No frills, but everything you need for a fun, low key tri.
