Pre-race routine:

walked and got a coffee
Event warmup:

fast walk
  • 12m 33s
  • 750 yards
  • 01m 40s / 100 yards

Heart rate high in anticipation of starting, wasn't used to this.
What would you do differently?:

more interval training, but did get my personal best to this point.
Transition 1
  • 00m 32s

Need to get better at mounting bike with the run out of the transition area
  • 42m 52s
  • 12.2 miles
  • 17.08 mile/hr

Good ride, cut off time, need to get a road bike soon, the hybrid limits my ability.
Transition 2
  • 01m 23s

had to remove some layers before the run, more time involved due to the layering. Love elastic laces!!
  • 34m 13s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 02s  min/mile

Had a hard time getting into the run from the bike.
Post race
Warm down:

walked for 10 minutes

What limited your ability to perform faster:

poor run as my weakness

Event comments:

Hard to hear the directions verbally provided over the microphone as they continued to play the music. Was well prepared with the directions that had been written, so this wasn't an issue for me, saw that it was with others though.
