Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

Stretching, listening to iPod
  • 10m 10s
  • 500 yards
  • 02m 02s / 100 yards

The water was a lot more choopy than I expected. the swim team was still practicing which made the water dirtier and choppier than I imagine. i started out to fast, after 3 laps I was at 2:37. I started right off, no warm up laps or anything
What would you do differently?:

Start of slower, do a warm up lap or two
Transition 1
  • 00m

They gave us as much time as we wanted with the clock stopped.
  • 30m 46s
  • 8 miles
  • 15.60 mile/hr

Stationary ride was not what I expected again. I could not wear my cycling shoes due to the pedals on it and for some reason I did not take the time to adjust the seat and handlebars and such.
What would you do differently?:

Take more time to adjust the bike if they are going to give it to me.
Transition 2
  • 00m

not an issue
  • 16m 42s
  • 2 miles
  • 08m 21s  min/mile

The run was the only part of the race that went as expected. I started running at 7 mph and then increased it after 1.5 miles. I wore my iPod which really helped me I think. I was happy with my times.
What would you do differently?:

maybe go to 8 mph.
Post race
Warm down:

walking around, drinking, toweling off.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

expectations I think. Hated the seat on the bike and wanted to wear my cycle shoes.

Event comments:

Think this was a good race to show me that I am not as far along as I thought I might have been.
