Total Time = 1h 42m 40s
Overall Rank = 1/1/1

Age Group Rank = 0/
Pre-race routine:

None really.
Event warmup:

Walked from home to the Y as warm up.
  • 21m 34s
  • 400 yards
  • 05m 23s / 100 yards

I'm slow....
What would you do differently?:

Will swim 500 yards next time -- as closer to the 1/2 mile Sprint distance.

Work more on bilateral breathing.
Transition 1
  • 06m 57s

Changed out of swim suit to cylcing/running clothes & cap, and walked fast down the hall to the bikes.
What would you do differently?:

Have the bike seat at the correct height, and remember what that is in case someone else moves it in the mean time
  • 36m 4s
  • 13 miles
  • 21.63 mile/hr

Indoor riding is so boring to me, but I stuck it out!
What would you do differently?:

Be more consistant with effort -- not up and down as much.
Transition 2
  • 01m 12s

So easy to hop over to treadmill!
What would you do differently?:

Get to the treadmill quicker!
  • 36m 50s
  • 3 miles
  • 12m 17s  min/mile

Did a one minute walk every few minutes -- shin splint therapy!
What would you do differently?:

No walk -- run the whole thing.
Post race
Warm down:

Walk 5 minutes on treadmill and slow walk to locker room.

Next time, add stretching for 2 or 3 minutes.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My first try at this, so need a baseline to compare future attempts. I don't know if I can go faster or not. We will see.

Event comments:

I like the idea of doing this mock tri periodically just to see how I will be able to perform in the real thing!! The brick needs work, and so does the running -- myy weakest link. I will do this again.
