Pre-race routine:

Wake up time at 415 AM, Bowl of Cereal and Banana, Meet pfitzger and bigtechs and head out to event site
Event warmup:

hurry up with a 100m and wait 1 hour, mix in another hundred and decide to stretch, read the morning news, make a few phone calls, do some laundry...
  • 05m 28s
  • 300 meters
  • 01m 49s / 100 meters

first 100m was nice and smooth, feeling the flow
What would you do differently?:

nothing just train more and work on better breathing
Transition 1
  • 03m 5s

all was good until i decide to reprogram my stupid garmin, had a multisport setting worked out but for some reason it didn't start in right mode. this caused major delay and much consternation
What would you do differently?:

when encountering technical difficulties just get up and go, go go!
  • 39m 4s
  • 12 miles
  • 18.43 mile/hr

wow! hr 180 avg...very surprised that my hr was off the charts for the entire leg, did someone spike my water bottle??
What would you do differently?:

endurance training is a must
Transition 2
  • 01m 54s

forgot to take my helmet off, had to stop and give it to race official, oops
What would you do differently?:

check gear
  • 25m 32s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 13s  min/mile

things hurt early, middle and late but surprised about time given my lack of interval training. my hr rate spiked due to my "sprint" to the finish line
What would you do differently?:

had the right amount of gu, but needed more water. more bricks and more intervals would have greatly helped!
Post race
Warm down:

it was great seeing, hearing all the T3 gang at the finish line. thanks for the support and thanks for coming out to the event!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

wasn't a lack of effort, just gotta train more
