Pre-race routine:

Up and at it about 5am...porridge w/milk and honey washed down with some water. Banana on the way to the race.
Event warmup:

Today was not a pleasant day...windy, the warm up was about 1/2 mile out and back.
  • 21m 4s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 46s  min/mile

Went out at a decent paced then slowed a little on the way back. Good balance overall though.
What would you do differently?:

Having not run enough this year due to a knee injury I would say I just need to work on running generally...speed work maybe!
Transition 1
  • 01m 3s

Transition was a little slow due to the weather, but otherwise ok...I just screwed up clipping into the pedals...twice! Probably ended up costing me 15 secs and a place.
What would you do differently?:

Get my feet clipped in better!
  • 30m 37s
  • 11.2 miles
  • 21.95 mile/hr

Went out too hard early trying to catch people I could see and ended up suffering for it later.
What would you do differently?:

Just train with more speed work...time spent riding hard.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around...had a beer, some watermelon, cookies.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Early year knee injury killing running speed.

Not clipping into pedals cleanly.

Event comments:

Another good race run by Gulf Coast Running Club!
