Post race
Warm down:

Warmdown another .5mi on treadmil steeping down rate until HR under 110, not counted in final time.

Me, I did not want to overdo. Keep it intense but controlled with good form.

Event comments:

FUN, fun, fun! This first time at all three was a blast. Was anxious at the start and boosted energy, swam easy but strong. Learned a lot in T1. Biked well. T2 quick. Run was hard but kept the paced up and finished strong. Can't wait until my next one? Two-weeks maybe ...
