Pre-race routine:

Got up, felt nauseous, had 1/2 of my breakfast. The race was close to home, rode my bike to the race
Event warmup:

not much. I wanted to warm up, but I didn't start until 7:40. Couldn't get in the pool to warm up as it was a pool-swim tri, didn't want to run b/c of my torn soleus and the bike was in transition. So nothing!
  • 12m 27s
  • 601 yards
  • 02m 04s / 100 yards

ugh. I so suck at swimming. On the other hand, this was my 5th swim all year.
What would you do differently?:

maybe train. maybe.
Transition 1
  • 01m 33s

Nothing exciting here.
  • 41m 58s
  • 11.7 miles
  • 16.73 mile/hr

Felt like I was really struggling on the bike, yet, I know I can do way better than my speed!
What would you do differently?:

train more. 9/39 AG is good for me though
Transition 2
  • 01m 37s

not bad, could be better
  • 29m 44s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 09m 35s  min/mile

I tore my soleus maybe 2 mos ago, and have only rehabbed up to 17 mins of running prior to this. And amazingly, I had no pain on this run! I was thrilled with that. Anyway, decent run, but that uphill about killed me.
What would you do differently?:

no injuries.
Post race
Warm down:

ate food, hung out with the family and friends.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

injuries, lack of training. also I don't think I really know how to race something this short. I don't put myself in enough pain.

Event comments:

This was a first year race...a few kinks, but really they did a nice job. I think it will be even better next year.
