Pre-race routine:

Ate oatmeal and a bananna. Got to the site early and set-up transition area. Crowded rack by the start of the race.
Event warmup:

Prepped my bike and did some stretching and short running. Got down to the water and swam for a little bit.

  • 01m 31s / 100 yards

First time I've been hit in the head and pushed around some. Didn't affect my stroke. Continued on.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. Was my best swim and time.
Transition 1
  • 02m 18s

Used a new TriSlide Spray on my legs. My one leg popped right out of the wetsuit. Longer run to transition as the lake was down some from previous race in July. Tied for first in best Transition time for age group.
What would you do differently?:

  • 41m 15s
  • 12.5 miles

Thought I had a better time according to my timer on my Bike. Oh well. It wouldn't have mattered in the end as the third place overall time for my age group was about 7 min ahead of me.
What would you do differently?:

Just need to keep getting better. Need to lose some weight so I am not having to carry it up the hills.
Transition 2
  • 01m 5s

Cramps trying to put shoes on and running out to start the run. Carried a Print Nathan Hand Water Bottle 8 oz. for the first time. Liked it.

  • 25m 59s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 21s  min/mile

Need to lose some weight and work on speed and hills. One second ahead of my last race at the same venue. Great kick at the end; ended strong.
What would you do differently?:

Need to lose some weight and work on hills.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around some.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Weight and hill work.
