Pre-race routine:

Got up at 6:30 and had a gel then drove out the to race venue, a small fitness center about ten miles outside of San Antonio.
Event warmup:

Biked down to the gas station for the bathroom, then spent 15-20 minutes on the trainer to get a good sweat going and the HR up a bit. Took a second gel and then went to get into the start line.
  • 1h 05m 55s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 22.62 mile/hr

This was my first stand alone 40k TT so it was cool to see how hard I could push without a run afterwards. Overall I'm happy with my result since it's better than my oly bike split PR. Hopefully do this course again next month and see how many seconds I can knock off.
What would you do differently?:

Push through the pain for the last 4-5 miles. I feel like I could have kept the hammer down for the last bit of the course and picked up second place.
Post race
Warm down:

Cruised for another mile or two to cool down.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

First time ever doing this kind of race, now I know what to expect.

Event comments:

Lots of fun, this TT series goes until October I think, see how training goes and how close I can get to that magic 1hr mark.
