Pre-race routine:

Left the wife and kids at home and went on my own. Minimalistic approach - just took the gear I needed. Had a Tim Hortons breakfast.
Event warmup:

None - unless you count checking out the pre-race pace booty as a warm up.
  • 18m 8s
  • 4 kms
  • 04m 32s  min/km

I went out hard and kept up the tempo. I was very pleased with my pace. What surprised me was how many of the other 30-39 men were going just as fast.
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 6s

Everything went smoothly. Wasted 5 sec trying to clip in.
What would you do differently?:

not much.
  • 52m 21s
  • 30 kms
  • 34.38 km/hr

The wind gusts were so strong that I struggled to stay in the aerobard for the first 10km. My aerodisk kept getting blown to the side.
What would you do differently?:

Practice my bike handling in the wind more.
Transition 2
  • 00m 53s

Measured myself using my watch
What would you do differently?:

no much
  • 19m 35s
  • 4 kms
  • 04m 54s  min/km

Decent run but I felt tired and slow. My heart had trouble calming down during the 1st two km. I could have run the last 2km faster but wimped out.
What would you do differently?:

train more?
Post race
Warm down:

Pulled pork sandwich andpepsi. Mmmmmm.

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

Great race. I imporved by over last year's result by more than 10min. What surprised me was the quality of competition. Last year my 1:32 would have placed me in the top 25% - this year I was mid-pack. I guess I have to keep training harder.
