Pre-race routine:

ate toast with PB and jelly, tried banana almost threw up. Coffee and water. I was sick yesterday, drank lots of water but hoping this wouldn't effect my tri today.
Event warmup:

no event warmup
  • 09m
  • 400 yards
  • 02m 15s / 100 yards

I have never done an OWS before, I tried to not freak myself out my telling myself, to remain calm, go slow, check your breathing, stay out of the group, you will see no line at the bottom, it will be ok.

IT DIDN'T WORK!!!! I totally freaked out, had a mouth full of water, when I first started, could not get my face back in the water. I could not do a backstroke, or a breast stroke. basically floated on my back the entire race. My heart race felt like it was through the roof. It wasn't good! I don't know how I made it out in 9 minutes.........
What would you do differently?:

Practice OWS................
Transition 1
  • 00m

not sure, no timing chips, was using own watch.
What would you do differently?:

no gloves, less nutritional supplements, not needed
  • 43m
  • 15 miles
  • 20.93 mile/hr

My goal for the race was to catch this dude on a mountain bike that passed me within the first few miles, "nice pace" he said. I have no idea what my "pace" was, because I still don't have a computer on my bike. Anyway, I never did pass him...................rrrrrrrrrrr

felt tired the first half, more energy the second.
Transition 2
  • 00m

no time, felt ok with the transition, had to fix my hair (I know I'm a girl), but it was plastered to my head. gross
  • 29m 30s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 50s  min/mile

tired until 1 1/2 miles, then felt ok, could not go faster
What would you do differently?:

way too much crap in my pockets from the bike, when I started running, was jiggling all over. annoying. ate a gel just to get it out of my pocket.

Event comments:

This was my first tri race, I guess it was a good course, swim would have sucked anywhere.

I like chip timing though.

I calculated my time different, so not sure exactly what my times were exactly.
