Pre-race routine:

Woke up, drank a little coffee, ate two slices of toast and a little bit of oatmeal.
Event warmup:

Walked around, soaked up the atmosphere, swam about 150 meters then stretched.
  • 18m 44s
  • 1000 meters
  • 01m 52s / 100 meters

Since swimming is my weak spot, I am pretty happy with this.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe give a little more effort, maybe...
Transition 1
  • 01m 41s

A little slow, had some issues with my shoes.
  • 1h 08m 5s

  • 20.27 mile/hr

I thought I did a really good job on the bike, the hills were bigger than I expected but, I still managed over 20 mph for the course.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing...Hopefully have a new bike for next year.
Transition 2
  • 01m 21s

New technique, I just sat down and out my shoes on, much easier and didn't have to fight with my socks.
  • 36m 36s
  • 4.4 miles
  • 08m 19s  min/mile

For as pleased with my swim and bike, i am a little upset with my run. My pace was :45 seconds off normal pace, but, whatever, my over all time was what i wanted.
What would you do differently?:

Train better on running after a 20+ mile rides. My first mile was the slowest
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

I think the lack of bricks...

My goal was to draft as much as I could, I would say I was able to pull that off about 50%. I was only shooting for 21 minutes, so I am pretty happy. I really did not give a 100% effort, which again, was the plan.
