Pre-race routine:

Woke up early to drive to the race (1 hour distance). Cliff Bar for breakfast with some orange juice.
Event warmup:

Easy bike (5 min) with stretching afterwards. Light run (5 min).
  • 14m 34s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 55s / 100 meters

Great swim for the first swim of the season (pool or otherwise). Sam was worried about it, I was not.
What would you do differently?:

More swim training. Steadier pace. Keep swimming and not looking around so much.
Transition 1
  • 02m 9s

Transition area was immediately after the swim. I set it up perfectly and the only problem was taking some nutrition with me.
  • 34m 11s
  • 10 miles
  • 17.55 mile/hr

Good bike leg. Very tricky around some very tight corners.
What would you do differently?:

More bike training with more distance and speed work.
Transition 2
  • 02m 7s

Good transition from bike to run.
  • 31m 13s
  • 3 miles
  • 10m 25s  min/mile

Very slow run. I hit the wall immediately after the transition area and finally recovered to run at a decent pace with only 1/2 mile left.
What would you do differently?:

Much more focus on bricks.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk for approximately 10 minutes with stretching

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training, training, training.

Event comments:

Swim course had a ton of safety personnel out on the water. Plenty of volunteers out on the course, including the sticky bike portion. After race food provided by Everything Noodles, good food but not great.
