Total Time = 1h 07m 55s
Overall Rank = 37/400
Age Group = M30-34
Age Group Rank = 6/35
Pre-race routine:

Half a banana and some canalope. Also drank my normal protein shake.
Event warmup:

Really didn't do much here. Just did my normal shoulder stretching before the swim.
  • 04m 37s
  • 300 yards
  • 01m 32s / 100 yards

My swim felt great. Some guys weren't staying on their side so they ran into me twice. I lost my breath one time and just thinking about it was able to recover my normal breathing.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing I had a great swim and time.
Transition 1
  • 00m 52s

My T1 was outstanding. I've improved so much from last year. My only issue was jumping on the bike trying to pedal when the shoes were facing down. That took me a little bit to get started.
What would you do differently?:

There has to be a trick I don't know about besides using rubber bands.
  • 40m 52s
  • 14 miles
  • 20.55 mile/hr

Well lets see my goal was 40min and I did that so I'm real happy with my performance. What I would like to work on is getting into rhythm sooner. It takes me about 4 miles to get my legs going. Also I can feel I'm faster, but I just don't push myself unless there is someone there. I really need to work on pushing myself when I'm alone.
What would you do differently?:

That's hard to say. I really don't know how hard I can push while saving my legs some for the run. I reached my goal so I most likely wouldn't change anything.
Transition 2
  • 00m 43s

This would of been real fast if I didn't have to put on socks. Right now I have to use socks with my running shoes. One day i'll get some nice Tri type shoes.
What would you do differently?:

  • 20m 49s
  • 2.9 miles
  • 07m 11s  min/mile

Well around 1.5 miles I got my running legs back and picked up the pace. Running right now is my worst even though I PR my time. This is another one I don't push myself. I know I can run harder it just doesn't happen unless competition passes me. I really have got to learn to race.
What would you do differently?:

Push myself harder.
Post race
Warm down:

Sat in a chair. LOL

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Nothing I beat my last year time by 6min. Amazing.

Event comments:

Overall great race. I trained very well for this race.
