Pre-race routine:

Stayed in Vermillion, so, well rested, set up transition, seemed like a long run from end of swim to T-1. Picked up my race packet the day before, so just got numbered.
Event warmup:

A little stretch and swim, ready to go!
  • 21m 33s
  • 820 yards
  • 02m 38s / 100 yards

Slow swim. My last race I felt gassed after swim, this time I went too slow. Will work on pacing over the winter.
What would you do differently?:

A little more pace in the middle of the swim. I went too slow down the back stretch! Swim needs work.
Transition 1
  • 01m 53s
What would you do differently?:

More speed in t-1. Need to go without socks
  • 34m 36s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 21.55 mile/hr

Good ride. Happy with results.
What would you do differently?:

More aggressive in the corners and better gearing selection
Transition 2
  • 01m 19s

Felt I had a good transition here.
What would you do differently?:

  • 33m 53s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 10m 54s  min/mile

The run was ok, but sections were very tight, passing on coming runners on a very skinny sidewalk.
What would you do differently?:

Run, run, run. I do not do enough run training.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched, fluids, tear down transition. Went to Lake!!

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I still feel my weight to strength ratio is bad. I will do more run training this winter. Hope to race at 180-185 lbs range, instead of 195-200.

Event comments:

Very nice race location. Volunteers were the best! Good traffic control.I will race this event again.
