Total Time = 1h 26m 58s
Overall Rank = 3/146
Age Group = 40-44
Age Group Rank = 2/17
Pre-race routine:

Powerbar about 30 mins pre-race. Roctane GU about 15 min pre-race.
Event warmup:

Nothing. No strokes in the lake. Rode my bike a bit an hour before, but that was more of a mechanical test.
  • 14m 22s
  • 880 yards
  • 01m 38s / 100 yards

Felt like I was loosing my breath about 1/4 or 1/3 of the way in, so eased up a bit.
What would you do differently?:

Not much - just not swim trained right now!
Transition 1
  • 01m 34s

Struggled with putting on thin long sleeve shirt while wet because it was chilly. Good call, but just slow in T1 because of it.
What would you do differently?:

I don't think I'd swim in a long sleeve shirt, so wouldn't do much different.
  • 51m 14s
  • 18.5 miles
  • 21.67 mile/hr

Faster than last year by 62 seconds!
What would you do differently?:

Not too much! The trainer time has helped! (And it was a beautiful day!)
Transition 2
  • 00m 35s

Faster than last year by 11 seconds, but mainly due to a better spot in transition.
What would you do differently?:

Not much - even had to take extra time to rip off long sleeve shirt.
  • 19m 12s
  • 5 kms
  • 03m 50s  min/km

I didn't push through mile 1.5 to mile 2.5 as good as last year. I could try to keep it stronger there.
Post race
Warm down:

Saw a PT guy there to work on my sore left butt cheek. He worked a few areas gently. Then a bit of random stretching.

Event comments:

Fun race and a beautiful day!
