Total Time = 55m 22s
Overall Rank = 4/77
Age Group = Clydesdale
Age Group Rank = 1/5
Pre-race routine:

Had some Gatorade, got a little swim in and stood around for a bit.
Event warmup:

About 200 yards prior to swim start.
  • 04m 15s
  • 300 yards
  • 01m 25s / 100 yards

Not a bad swim. Timing mat was outside of pool deck so actual swim time was a bit quicker. The guy starting first was not going to swim the time he claimed so I was ready to pass him immediately. I passed him at the 125 wall. Out of the pool first was a pretty cool feeling but with a 300 yard swim it doesnt mean much.
Transition 1
  • 00m 52s

A good run to get to transition, and I had prob a :20-:30 lead on my buddy Robby who had also passed the guy who started first. Robby started 3rd.
What would you do differently?:

My mount was rusty at best, and I was very sloppy getting my shoes on while riding.
  • 26m 27s
  • 9.76 miles
  • 22.14 mile/hr

My legs just didnt have it in them today. I was far too slow on the bike, I should've been about 1.5mph faster. I have only had a few hard interval sessions outside and it definitely showed. My rides have been geared towards my HIM in May, not towards my sprints. Very disappointed.
Transition 2
  • 00m 29s

Not bad, just not great. I thought I was really slow, my shoes didnt go on very easily.
  • 23m 21s
  • 3.13 miles
  • 07m 28s  min/mile

Not bad, but I had hoped to go about 2 min faster. Again, my legs just werent with me

Warm down:

Had some water and walked around a bit.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My legs just werent firing like they needed to today.

Event comments:

This race was a good way to start things off to see where I'm rusty. Unfortunately I'm rustier than I thought. I've got a big race in 2 weeks so we'll see how I really stack up then. With only 77 participants, its not a very deep field. I was happy to go under an hour, thats the first time I've gone that low.
