Pre-race routine:

ate one egg and some oatmeal. and a granola bar about 30 minutes before start. walked around and talked.
Event warmup:

  • 16m 20s
  • 900 yards
  • 01m 49s / 100 yards

swim went great! i swam in the race at the same pace i swim my timed 200's. i was very pleased. that was the time i was hoping to do it in!
What would you do differently?:

train more for next year to get faster.
Transition 1
  • 02m 15s

not sure of T1. no transition timing was done. but i think i was around 2:00+. bad idea trying to put on my tri top while still wet, and it really cost me time.
What would you do differently?:

wear the tri top in the pool.
  • 43m 30s
  • 15 miles
  • 20.69 mile/hr

felt like a slug the first half of the bike course. i havent been putting in many miles on the bike, and it just didnt feel smooth and easy to me. after i got about half way, i was loosened up and started closing in on the person who beat me out of the pool first in my wave.
What would you do differently?:

keep up my bike training and dont let it slack off.
Transition 2
  • 00m

again, no transition timing. but from my previous races, it felt to be about the same time.
  • 23m 40s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 53s  min/mile

got off bike and felt good. had a minor side stitch, but i pushed through it. i didnt want the person behind me to pass me, so that made me push through my discomfort. after i got to the turnaround, i felt great and was able to put more down some more speed (not that im fast though).
What would you do differently?:

work on not getting side stitches on the run, how to run with a side stitch, etc.
Post race
Warm down:

got a few drinks and some bagels with peanut butter.

Event comments:

need chip timing. and make the bike course not pass over train tracks twice and risk getting stuck.
