Pre-race routine:

Drove down to the race two hours away. Left the house at 4 am and arrived at 610
Event warmup:

mostly running with a little swimming
  • 15m 19s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 52s / 100 yards

Terrible swim. Once playing catchup after getting bogged down at the start. I was in the wrong position at the start which caused me to get pounded on by people.
Transition 1
  • 00m 54s

Best T1 of the year for me.
  • 41m 20s
  • 15 miles
  • 21.77 mile/hr

I felt as if I struggled a bit on the bike. I never really got into a rythym even though my time was decent for me.
Transition 2
  • 00m 47s

Best T2 of the year! (for me)
  • 21m 17s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 50s  min/mile

I was actually surprised how well I did considering the couse. I feel like I am getting stronger in the run.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretch and IBUPROFIN!

Event comments:

Great race with a lot of athletes. People flock to this race because the bike is rolling to flat which leaves a guy like me praying for some climbs!
