only 5.5 seconds between me and top swimmer in age group
1-2 minutes slower than women above me in my age group, 65th ranked in transition
What would you do differently?:
have to think about this, others had wetsuits . . . and I thought they had socks. I did already have my number on. Was I too relaxed because this wasn't a sprint?
had trouble finding spot without towel to mark properly
28th in AG on transition. 45" slower than top AG, but 10-15" behind finishers close to me. Trouble finding rack spot didn't help.
started faster then dialed back when I remembered how hard the 2nd half is in the sun. bulk of AG finished with 8:15 min/mi pace.
5 minutes faster than last year on this course

perfect amount of oatmeal, not too sweet (1 cup) with milk, plus coffee, oj. Didn't need the fig newtons at transition, felt well fueled for entire race.
Only got 2 minutes in water beforehand, but with wetsuit.
Very difficult to get one piece sprint suit, wetsuit back on after a bio break.
