Pre-race routine:

Got up late because the volume on my alarm clock was all the way down. We had a guy house sit our dogs a couple of weeks ago. I left the alarm on and he couldn't figure out how to turn it off, so he just turned it down. Obviously I didn't realize that. Stopped at McD's for an Egg McMuffin, which turned out to be a big mistake.
Event warmup:

Jogged a bit with my partner and swam a little prior to the start.
  • 16m 24s
  • 875 yards
  • 01m 52s / 100 yards

Because of the way the results are posted, I have no idea how I did within my normal AG or even overall. Considering the lack of training, though, I did okay.
Transition 1
  • 02m 49s

Long run up to T1, as usual for Decker Lake. Tried to take it a little easy to let my HR come down at least a little.
  • 34m 35s
  • 11.2 miles
  • 19.43 mile/hr

Garmin data was screwed up so I'm not sure what my NP was. AP was only 185 and that felt damn hard.
Transition 2
  • 01m 18s

Got off the bike no problem, but didn't have a good fix on my spot on the rack, so I had to slow down a bit.
  • 28m
  • 3.11 miles
  • 09m  min/mile

Started slow and stayed that way. I didn't walk, but 9-minute miles for a 5k is pretty sad.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I didn't do anything for over a month prior to this race. It's not surprising that my body wasn't ready for a sprint-level effort. Lack of sleep and other issues also didn't help.

Event comments:

Always a fun event.
