Pre-race routine:

Race was only 20 min from the house - got to sleep in!
Event warmup:

I was in the last heat, so I had an hour to watch others swim. I sat, watched and stretched.
  • 09m 54s
  • 500 meters
  • 01m 59s / 100 meters

I normally go way outside and stay out of the pack. This time I got on the inside and right in the fray. This worked out fine; only a few bumps. Much better job of hugging the inside line.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 03m 50s

Long distance from lake to transition area to bike to bike course start!
What would you do differently?:

  • 29m 37s
  • 9 miles
  • 18.23 mile/hr

The hills kicked my ass...I need to work more on this.
What would you do differently?:

work on climbing hills.
Transition 2
  • 02m 2s

What would you do differently?:

  • 20m 4s
  • 2.44 miles
  • 08m 13s  min/mile

I ran as fast as I could on that day. I even felt a twinge in my left leg on one of the downhills that scared me.
What would you do differently?:

Work on hill repeats, intervals, speedwork.
Post race
Warm down:

walked around, smoothies were GREAT! Pancake breakfast was free - who wants a heavy pancake breakfast after a workout?

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I didn't train for this short distance race at all. It was a nice change though.

Event comments:

This is a well run, fun, small race. I liked the feel - it seemed there were a lot more beginners who were happy to be racing and less of the veterans who were super serious about the race.
