My best open water swim to date. This is mostly a mental issue. Get to stressed out and nervous at the start.
What would you do differently?:

Calm down
Transition 1
  • 04m 12s

Had a hard time getting my cycling gloves on. Also long run from swim finish to my bike
  • 1h 19m 2s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 18.87 mile/hr

Poured down rain for the last 2 of 3 laps so had to take it easier on the turns and corners.
Transition 2
  • 02m 42s

Took some extra time here to change into dry socks. Smart move and worth the extra minute.
  • 51m 13s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 15s  min/mile

Felt awesome on the run. The first 10 minutes were rough but found my stride. Took a caffein gel 15 minutes into the run and I think that perked me up. Felt stronger at the end of the run than at the beginning.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Rain and sucky swim
