Pre-race routine:

Arrived a little late so I didnt do anything planned. Mostly jumped around and streched before the swim.
  • 04m 59s
  • 330 yards
  • 01m 31s / 100 yards

My fastest swim in this race to date. I slowed down on laps 4 and 5.
Transition 1
  • 01m 13s

Lost time putting on socks.
What would you do differently?:

I need to progress to no socks.
  • 31m 4s
  • 11 miles
  • 21.24 mile/hr
What would you do differently?:

Well, looking at the results I found out I got a drafting penalty
Transition 2
  • 00m 51s

I got my feet on top my shoes. I think with a little practice I could do that much faster.
What would you do differently?:

I have not practiced jumping off a moving bike. Maybe I will try that for next year.
  • 25m 6s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 04s  min/mile

The course is not as flat as I thought.
What would you do differently?:

I will definitely try to start my run faster. I think running the first half hard and coasting on the downhill second half will result in my best time.
Post race
Warm down:

None as usual.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I needed to do more VO2 max rides to prepare for the bike. My overall conditioning was a little low this year. But I paced better than usual.

Event comments:

Good race I always like this one. I am embaressed to have received a drafting penalty. Although, I dont think I did it. I will be more careful next time.
