Pre-race routine:

This was my last triathlon for the season!!

Bagel with PB, cup of coffee, and a banana.
Had a cliff shot about 30 minutes prior to race.
Event warmup:

Nothing really. You could warm-up in the pool if you wanted. I didn't because I knew I was going to wait a while before I would actually race. I figured I wasn't going to benefit much. They closed the pool to warm-ups about 30 minutes prior to the race start. I wasn't going to actually race until about 8:30. That would have been an hour. So I just jumped around instead. :)
  • 13m 23s
  • 547 yards
  • 02m 27s / 100 yards

Well what can I say.

At least I did free style the whole way. I didn't panic. I'm just super slow. Sigh.
What would you do differently?:

Ummmmmmm...Swim lessons? More swimming?
Transition 1
  • 01m 48s

Was fairly pleased with my transition. Thought it was slower as I took my time getting my socks and shoes on. Plus to catch my breath. :)
What would you do differently?:

I can always improve in this area.
  • 31m 11s
  • 10 miles
  • 19.24 mile/hr

I felt good and strong. I knew though that I needed to conserve a little so I had enough in the legs for the run.
What would you do differently?:

Train on the bike more would be nice.
Transition 2
  • 01m 46s

A little slower. I had to run with bike shoes to the transition area. My bike was way in the back. Luckily the run start was in the back.
What would you do differently?:

Well I could leave my bike shoes on the bike. I'm not good enough for that advanced technique yet. ;)
  • 22m 39s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 07m 19s  min/mile

Legs felt a little stiff when I started. Got into a groove and felt o.k. It's honestly hard to tell if one is running fast or slow when you run after the bike portion. I just run...

Had enough to kind of sprint to the finish. Gagged a little when I finished LOL, than proceeded to get some fluids. I was a little dehydrated.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe drink more.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around a bit. Had some post race food and waited a long time for the awards ceremony. I don't podium much, so I wanted to stick around. Unfortunately the wait was super long and my kids were getting tired. I finally got my 3rd place AG award and went home. :)

What limited your ability to perform faster:

THE SWIM!!!!!!

I honestly need to work on this. The swim just kills me every time.

This winter, I'm definitely investing in some lessons!!

Event comments:

The race was well organized and fun. The only thing I didn't like was waiting for your times to be posted. Than waiting a super long time for the awards ceremony. They had some difficulties with the race result. I guess better to make sure everything is right than to find out later everything is wrong.
