Pre-race routine:

get up and do morning functions, drive to race. Had half a clif bar, coffee and gatorade. Same as normal.
Event warmup:

Just had time for a swim warmup. I don't think this affected my bike or run though. I didn't feel bad starting out on the bike.
  • 09m 56s
  • 440 yards
  • 02m 16s / 100 yards

1:22 faster than last race. Time includes 1/4 mile run to T1. Actual swim time was 7:54. This was another great swim for me.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, great swim. Well maybe not hit Steve in the mouth :-) I accidently hit him on one of my strokes. I was breathing to the right and he was on my left.He shouldn't be in my way though :-)
Transition 1
  • 01m 21s

Forgot water bottle to clean feet. longer transition trying to get some mud off of my feet. Also forgot to get sunglasses out of bag.
What would you do differently?:

checklist at transition setup.
  • 27m 26s
  • 9.2 miles
  • 20.12 mile/hr

hit some bad road and man one bounced my right on my groin! Took a few seconds to recover from that. Same time within a second as last time. Probably windier than last race.
What would you do differently?:

Get going faster. Took too long to get into pedals and going.
Transition 2
  • 01m 6s

Took a few drinks of gatorade since I ran out on the bike. Half of bottle was still frozen.
What would you do differently?:

Freeze gatorade in aero bottle instead of bottle so it can thaw during swim and warmup.
  • 39m 26s
  • 3.1 kms
  • 12m 43s  min/km

Knew I was dead first 1/4 mile. Walked at 1/4 mile feeling awful and look at my watch and HR is only 163. Had that same problem as in my half mary last year. I think it is some imbalance with my potassium or something. Need to have checkup with doctor. Bike was feeling harder than it should and run was over as soon as it started! I felt so good coming into this race and was excited with the new bike. Great swim, solid bike, then the run...
What would you do differently?:

Not sure exactly what caused my problem. Not too hot, HR low for a sprint.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around until I could control my arms again.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

whatever happened on the run.

Event comments:

Nice low key race. Nice run course in this Florida heat with the shade.

Wow, great swim time.  You sure have gotten that figured out.  First race with the new bike looks like it went well too.  Great job.  Sometimes we just bonk at the end.   Great job though.

Thanks Jim! In the swim, for the first time as I was rounding the buouy in a pack I realized I was totally comfortable and confident.
