Pre-race routine:

Nature Valley Granola Bar washed down with gatorade and some water.
Event warmup:

Just try to relax...
  • 24m 33s
  • 875 yards
  • 02m 49s / 100 yards

Swells big enough to hide the buoys when you weren't on one. No cracshing waves but current pushed me off direction most of the time. Navigation was poor. Difficult to get good rhythm going because of this.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing except practice more
Transition 1
  • 02m 19s

Put my shoes on in transition
What would you do differently?:

pull the top part of my wetsuit off while running then stop to remove the bottom
  • 1h 02m 6s
  • 18 miles
  • 17.39 mile/hr

Decent bike overall. Couldn't push as hard as I wanted too. I think I extended myself too far in the swim. Also having some digestive issues...
Got into aerobars more this time. Helped with the wind greatly.
What would you do differently?:

Nutrition? Practice swim so I don't wear myself out too much. Strength train for stronger legs? Speedwork?
Transition 2
  • 01m 18s

Decent transition overall
What would you do differently?:

  • 32m 5s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 10m 19s  min/mile

Stomach really starting to bother me now. Did not do anything different this time...
What would you do differently?:

Push it!
Post race
Warm down:

Water, food, socialize

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Digstive issues...None of my nutrition "digested" that day. Not sure whether it was previous day's food/illness??? Mom had issue next day too. Tired from week's activities.
