Pre-race routine:

Rainy and cold morning. Michelle went with me.. left around 5:30. JB's first tri, so I was just worried about
Event warmup:

Just tried to stay warm and dry. Didn't warm-up at all. JB's first tri, so I was just worried about him getting setup on time.
  • 12m 46s
  • 500 meters
  • 02m 33s / 100 meters

Started to feel tired on the way back for some reason. I thought I had a better time, but compared to the group I was slower. Again... my limiting event.
What would you do differently?:

draft... I really stayed away from the group. Not sure if that helped or hurt me.
Transition 1
  • 01m 41s

Little slower than usual. I had to get the wetsuit off which took a little longer. I tried to put my jacket on, but it was too hard so I just went without a shirt. I didn't feel cold though.
What would you do differently?:

Forgo the jacket
  • 35m 9s
  • 12 miles
  • 20.48 mile/hr

Best leg of the event again... placed 29th overall. Still would like to maintain an AVS of 21+.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 2
  • 01m 36s

Suprised how slow I was. Just moving slow... couldn't tie my shoes fast enough because they were wet. Had to put on my long sleeve shirt while I was running out.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure.. elements were a factor.
  • 24m 14s
  • 3.25 miles
  • 07m 28s  min/mile

Couldn't get the pace up to 7:30. 7:45 is not bad, but I was hoping for a faster time. I think the weather had an impact as well.
Post race
Warm down:

Just walked around and talked with Michelle, Holly and JB. I ate a banana and had a bagel.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weather and swimming.

Event comments:

First playtri race. Well-organized... i just wish they would have had more mile markers on the run.
