Pre-race routine:

I wanted to go with the family so I woke up around 4:30AM to put all the family/baby stuff in my truck.
Event warmup:

Quick swim.
  • 07m 44s
  • 437 yards
  • 01m 46s / 100 yards

Well, I am finally getting comfortable throwing punches in the water... I mean swimming LOL. I had to go around a couple back stroke/Brest stroke swimmers but it was pretty good.
What would you do differently?:

Get in front of the pack. I am better swimmer that I was before so there is no reason for me to wait at the end of the pack.
Transition 1
  • 01m 11s

Was fairly quick.
What would you do differently?:

  • 33m 32s
  • 11 miles
  • 19.68 mile/hr

Legs were still complaining about last week (HIM), but I did catch a lot of people. Also, I am happy cause day by day my biking is getting better, and this time only the fast fast guys were able to pass me.
What would you do differently?:

Hammer harder.
Transition 2
  • 00m 52s

I lost maybe a couple second with my right shoe but I was pretty fast so I can complain
What would you do differently?:

not much
  • 26m 18s
  • 3 miles
  • 08m 46s  min/mile

My feet were cold/dead/numb because it was cold; the first mile or so I though that I would break and ankle cause I couldn't feel my feet. Couple faster guys passed and the last mile I was pushing my pace to the limit but I gave too much at the beginning.
What would you do differently?:

Put shoes warmers on my bike shoes so I don't have to deal with cold feet LOL
Post race
Warm down:

Nothing special

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I did a HIM the week before and my legs weren't "there" just yet.
