Event warmup:

1 Lap Swim
  • 09m 51s
  • 450 yards
  • 02m 11s / 100 yards

I swallowed some water toward the end.

There were 2 per lane. I swam with the same guy that I swam with last time. He and I stayed with 1 or 2 body lengths of each other the whole time. I got in front of him on the last 150 yards.
What would you do differently?:

Work on breathing
Transition 1
  • 01m 43s

I had a little trouble with my socks. I need to dry my feet off better before putting them on.

I got to the race early and got a good position in the transition area. This helped alot.
What would you do differently?:

Dry my feet off better or go sockless.
  • 49m 52s
  • 14 miles
  • 16.84 mile/hr

I was slow for the first 4-6 miles (14-15 MPH), then something clicked in my head. I got in the aero position position and pushed 19-21 MPH on most of the ride back.
What would you do differently?:

Do more swim to bike bricks
Transition 2
  • 00m 36s

I did this pretty well. Everything came off easy. Shoes on a big gulp of water then sprinted out of T2.
What would you do differently?:

Not much
  • 23m 51s
  • 2.5 miles
  • 09m 32s  min/mile

I didn't walk, but I couldn't get my rubber legs to really run a 8.5 min mile.

The first mile was ~9 min/mile. The second mile was a ~10 min/mile and the last 1/2 was ~9.5 min/mile
What would you do differently?:

More bricks
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around and shower

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not enough bricks
