This was my personal best 5K time. So I am pretty excited.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. I kept the pace that I wanted to run. I did not try to keep up with the lead pack

What would you do differently?:

Practice my T1 more
  • 1h 21m 7s
  • 20.3 miles
  • 15.02 mile/hr

My right calf cramped up on mile 14. I had to get off my bike and try to walk it out. After I got back on, I couldn't get up to a consitent cadence or speed because it hurt for the remainder of the race. I was also going against a stong head wind when this happened.
What would you do differently?:

Get my bike fit.
Get more potassium.
Train more on hills
Transition 2
  • 01m 13s

I jumped off the bike too early which cost me a few seconds on my bike time.
What would you do differently?:

Know exactly where to jump off at.
  • 34m 42s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 11s  min/mile

My calf was killing me, so I would jog and then walk. This killed my time.
What would you do differently?:

Do more bricks
Post race
Warm down:

Well, it was the "Flying Bagel", so I had a bagel with Peanut Butter

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The cramps.

Not enough bike training.

Not being fit on my bike.
