Pre-race routine:

got up @ 3;30am(race was about an hr and half drive)! Ate an orange and a banana when I got up and started right away back on the water. Ate another banana about 4;30. Protein bar at 6:00am. Slammed a Rocktane about 30 minutes before and 10 minutes before I hit the water.
Event warmup:

None, way to cold for that!
  • 08m 55s
  • 437 yards
  • 13s / 100 yards

Pool was crowded towards the end. Paced myself about right, though.
What would you do differently?:

Been a little less courteous in the pool with people stopping at the wall to "assess" the situation.
Transition 1

Was cold, felt like I was moving slow because it was so cold!!!
What would you do differently?:

Blocked it out.
  • 48m 43s
  • 12.43 miles

Need to incorprate some more climbing in my workout routine!
What would you do differently?:

Coast on the 1st loop til HR was around target aerobic rate.
Transition 2
  • 00m
  • 25m
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 02s  min/mile

Couldve pushed 164 on the HR wasn't sure of course after all the climbs on the bike! Even though I ran with my HR averaging about 5 lower, I shaved over 2 minutes off my last run due to the Maffetone method!
What would you do differently?:

Push a bit more on the run!
Post race
Warm down:
