1st Triathlon ever... ranked 241 out of 266. Very difficult breathing through suit, went off course by 50' several times, OWS clearly needs improvement.
What would you do differently?:

Train more for OWS
Transition 1
  • 06m 3s
  • 53m 51s
  • 14 miles
  • 15.60 mile/hr

Need more hill training
Transition 2
  • 01m 39s
  • 33m 58s
  • 3 miles
  • 11m 19s  min/mile

The brutal swim wiped me out, I rode the bike a little too hard to make up time and then was exhausted by the time the run came. Three days prior to the run, I had a time of 28 mins for 3 miles during a training run.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Only six weeks of dedicated training. I lost almost a week of hard training due to high 90 temps about two weeks before the race

Event comments:

I really enjoyed this race and am looking forward to redeeming myself next year. Next year's goal is to shave 20-30 mins off this race.

Good job on your first race.  Keep up the training from now till next year and you should see the improvements you are looking for.  That was a great day for a race.
