Pre-race routine:

Up at 5, but had a ton of time to the 8:30 start so I ate a bagel, powerbar, gel and some Gatorade...more that usual. Got to transition early, set-up and then hung out with friends trying to stay relaxed.
Event warmup:

No warm-up.
  • 41m 20s
  • 1931 meters
  • 02m 08s / 100 meters

The cold water was shocking and made it hard to breathe at first. Had a couple of random panic attacks, but calmed myself. 2nd half was better than first.
What would you do differently?:

Warm up in the water!
Transition 1
  • 03m 29s
What would you do differently?:

Took too long. Need to get different clothes if i'm going to change in trans.
  • 2h 54m 33s
  • 56 miles
  • 19.25 mile/hr

Good ride. Turned speedometer off and just rode by heart rate. Could've pushed a tiny bit harder, but good ride overall. Got a little nauseous at times though.
What would you do differently?:

Work on nutrition so I don't feel ill. Get in better aero position so my neck doesn't hurt so badly.
Transition 2
  • 02m 5s

Faster transition, not terrible
  • 1h 51m 36s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 31s  min/mile

Ran strong and with a plan. Pretty even through 8 miles at about 8:48 or so. Picked it up from there and pushed each mile faster. Owned the run. Seriously.
What would you do differently?:

I'd pace the base part of the run a little faster.
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

Held myself back a bit as I was unsure how i could cope with hte distance.

Event comments:
