Pre-race routine:

Just drove up from Charlotte at around 4, parked and got on my bike and did my warmup. Had some shot bloks in the car. Night race solo. Really hoping it wasn't gonna rain.
Event warmup:

Did the run course 5k but on the bike, had one ramp up.
  • 00m
  • 400 meters
  • / 100 meters

Did not do this
Transition 1
  • 00m

No transition did not do swim
  • 36m 40s
  • 11.6 miles
  • 18.98 mile/hr

Though this was my slowest effort, I still felt like I put in a good turn. Disappointed I wasn't able to get into the 19-20 mph effort. Felt so slow on hills until the end. I felt like I warmed up as the race went on. Would still have been good enough for almost a top 20 effort race day. Did drop my chain at points.
What would you do differently?:

Aero and lose weight to get faster.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Took my time here, about 3.5 minutes b/c I was at my car.
What would you do differently?:

Didn't really need to go fast b/c it was virtual
  • 25m 44s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 09s  min/km

Did not go as fast I would have liked given that I've been running so much, but I still thought it was good for the first time after not having run after biking since March. I was pretty tired and didn't have that live race mojo.
What would you do differently?:

Lose weight, race live.
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing here, just packed up, had a miller lite from the car and headed to the Wedge. Walked around briefly at the Asheville Pool Center

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weight, not having live competition

Event comments:

I only did the bike and run of this race virtually, but it is usually a really great ace. iDaph is an incredibly good race organizer.
