Pre-race routine:

Got up and ate an egg with some toast at 4:30 a.m. Left the house at 5:00 and got there at 6:10. I got my race kit, body marked, set up transition and watched the start of the Olympic and sprint races.
Event warmup:

Got use to the water and swam a bit.
  • 05m 41s
  • 200 meters
  • 02m 50s / 100 meters

I felt extremely comfortable during the swim and am extremely pleased with my time.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 00m

I took way to long getting my suit off and putting my shoes on...
What would you do differently?:

Practice this transition more often before race day.
  • 35m 34s
  • 20 miles
  • 33.74 mile/hr

I went way too fast during the bike portion and did not drink nearly enough which would cost me during the run portion. Near the end of the run, I was stuck behind a truck which was going extremely slow, so that cost me some time.
What would you do differently?:

Drink more fluids.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Fairly speedy transition here.
What would you do differently?:

Practice my bike dismount.
  • 23m 21s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 40s  min/km

I had to fight off a cramp and I should not have drunk the Gatorade handed to me. I had a bit of steam in the end so I absolutely blitzed it and gave it my all the last 200m.
What would you do differently?:

Not drink the gatorade handed to me since it disturbed my stomach.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched a bit.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

It was the first year for this event so there was obviously some rough patches, but I loved the race and I was extremely pleased to see my parents attend.
