Just stretched. No pre race swim
  • 31m 24s
  • 1500 meters

Happy with my swim. Slow overall, but for me that was a good time and felt good
What would you do differently?:

Swimming lessons. Had gel before race
Transition 1

Seemed smooth enough.

Tape food or bento box would be helpfull

Happy with overall performance. The hills at end of ride were not near as bad as expected. Feet got cold.
What would you do differently?:

Should not have adjusted the aero bars before race. Get toe warmers.
Transition 2
  • 01m 5s

Things went smoothly.
What would you do differently?:

Might try running with shoes attached to bike. Tri shoes would be easier to get on and off

  • 05m 16s  min/km

Felt like I had something in my shoes the first 3 k, but it was just cold feet

If feet were not so cold, could have pushed the pace a little bit more
Post race

Hug and a Kiss from my wife. Watermelon and a bagle

Training. Busy summer. Shed, Tree House, Gardens, Birthdays, Anniversary, Rock Concert, Birthdays!

Still very happy with performance
