3 swimmers per lane placed by estimated swim time. I was third one in my lane and could not pass the 2 slower swimmers in my lane, could have cut 30-45s off my time.
What would you do differently?:

More agressive in my passing, make the others get out of my way. assert my will.
Transition 1
  • 00m

T1 time included with swim split. transition was 1/2km from pool exit, lost some time putting shoes on out of pool for T run. carpet was over gravel and HS parking lot, Saw glass on the way into pool and I decided not to risk cutting feet.
  • 24m 4s
  • 9 kms
  • 22.44 km/hr

Bike was my strongest event. did not change out of shorts, brought tights just in case, deiced against it and I am happy with that.
What would you do differently?:

Need to tighten cleats before next race. left foot popped off twice.

wine the night before

Event comments:
