Albuquerque, New Mexico
United States
Kirtland Air Force Base
Total Time = 1h 03m 19s
Overall Rank = 27/448
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 4/22
Pre-race routine:

Woke up. Ate granola and yougurt with toast. Sipped water. Drove the four miles to the race.
Event warmup:

Unpacked, jogged for a bit. Couldn't stop yawning before race.
  • 08m 5s
  • 437 yards
  • 01m 51s / 100 yards

The swim was the last event. It was cloudy and crowed. I had a tough time passing in the first lane because it was so narrow. My arms didn't feel real strong and my form went to crap.
What would you do differently?:

I need to do sets after I'm exhausted. Perhaps bricks with the swim second.
Transition 1
  • 01m 12s

this was the run to bike transition. I have mtn. bike shoes which take a little while to get into.
What would you do differently?:

nothing, seemed pretty good.
  • 32m 15s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 23.13 mile/hr

Felt pretty good out there. Tried to keep it at 24/25 and definitely over 22. I wanted to push myself for the final 5mi, but just wasn't able to.
What would you do differently?:

Sprint up hills.
Transition 2
  • 01m 20s

This was the bike to swim transition. Did alright, although the run on the pavement was a bit slow.
  • 20m 30s
  • 3 miles
  • 06m 50s  min/mile

I tried to go "all out" but didn't. I need to work on pushing my pace. I don't think the extra effort would have hurt me in the other events.
Post race
Warm down:

Hit the bathroom, watched wife finish.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Training probably, but I did alright.

Event comments:

The wave start was a little unclear. You can see from the results, that a few people started in the wrong wave.
