Pre-race routine:

Walk through the transition since it was really long and confusing. I tried to take the pre-race dump but nothing happened.
Event warmup:

Ran for about ten minutes before the race started.
  • 14m 47s
  • 656 yards
  • 02m 15s / 100 yards

Only got caught by the second wave of men. Beat the women out of the water this time. still had a hard time keeping a high cadence in the water. i started breathing on every stroke.
What would you do differently?:

Better positioning for the start. so that i am not in the middle when all of the shit goes down. otherwise just keep working on a consitently strong stroke.
Transition 1
  • 01m 48s

My rack was knocked off so i had to pick my shit up off the ground. I still am loosing valuable time putting on socks.
What would you do differently?:

find a way to put socks on fast or not at all
  • 38m 50s
  • 12.8 miles
  • 19.78 mile/hr

First race with aero bars. during slight downhills they really helped me go faster but i don't have the power to stay on them when it is perfectly flat or a slight rise.
What would you do differently?:

practice with aero bars more and concentrate on power.
Transition 2
  • 00m 58s

Fastest transition yet. Got in and got my stuff off fast and my shoes on just as fast.
What would you do differently?:

find a way to get off the bike faster as well as out of the shoes more efficiently
  • 24m 39s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 57s  min/mile

After the first mile i felt good. i was able to keep a good cadence. i felt really good right and the middle and only tapered off alittle towards the end.
Post race
Warm down:

I walked into the shade, drank some water and tried to not throw up.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Inefficiency. poor stroke. not practicing my transition. not pacing myself from the beginning.

Event comments:

Very well organized race. Along with the rest of the series. Well marked and thoughtout.
