Pre-race routine:

Up at 4 with the protein shake and bagel. Rode with some friends to the race and they picked up at 5:00
Event warmup:

Just walk around
  • 06m 14s
  • 328 yards
  • 01m 54s / 100 yards

Well, did fine until the end of the 200 then I was boxed in - I had a slow swimmer on the left and one slow in front - I could not pass - I started to get pissed but then just figured ride it out - I could have come in at 5:45 on the swim easy, well next time
What would you do differently?:

I thought about busting a move in front of the guy to my left and blow by him
Transition 1
  • 01m 19s

Great time -
What would you do differently?:

I can't think of anything - felt great
  • 38m 45s
  • 12 miles
  • 18.58 mile/hr

Well - everything was fine until the last part of the second loop - I got caught behind a Tahoe that turned before me - the cop said sorry - the issue was a very slow rider in front of the Tahoe and me behind - could not pass since cars were coming from the other lane - another rider and me just had to ride behind the damn car - about 12 mile per hour - final on the last turn the other rider and I busted out and moved.
What would you do differently?:

Well beside not getting stuck behind the car, could have cut a minute or two. I can't get made the - officer did the best he could.
Transition 2
  • 01m 21s

Great - felt good again
What would you do differently?:

None - could have got my shoes on faster but - no complaints
  • 31m 26s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 10m 08s  min/mile

Well, my run I really did not care - since I have been battling Plantar and have not run for 4 weeks, so did fine
What would you do differently?:

Hopeful the Plantar will go away and I can crank on the run
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and talked with friends from the North Dallas Tri group

What limited your ability to perform faster:

just my foot - felt good on the bike and swim
