Pre-race routine:

had toast with peanut butter and then begged for a banana at the triathlon (which were for after the race and I got one)

Next to no current this year but definitely felt it in 2006

Transition times was added into the going to estimate 2 minutes...though might have been a bit shorter
What would you do differently?:

Want to practice leaving shoes clipped in and riding out with feet on shoes...a faster transition never hurts

Decent ride...aerodrink bottle was splashing everywhere...have to get that down better...definitely hung out on the aerobars
What would you do differently?:

Push-pump harder
Transition 2

Transition time mixed in with run taking out a minute for this transition...was a decent least I don't waste time to drink during transitions anymore...just get it on the bike
  • 45m 26s
  • 4 miles
  • 11m 22s  min/mile

SLOWEST run...or rather jog/walk ever...I was so knackered for this run...and I really felt it frmo the wakling around for hours that I did the day before after a long bike...bad idea...but wow, I couldn't keep a pace or even keep was bad...and SO slow
Post race
Warm down:

walked around...drank lots...and ate so much...they had yummy bagels

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Was really tried from long bike/walk day before

Event comments:

Despite how tired I was and a really awful run...I was first in my age group...minus one elite racer who was not considered for awards in the age couldn't believe it...was first in my age group for first time ever...even though wasn't my best race...I was hanging on to being first!
