A minute faster than last year, but still no real training for the swim portion (a more than recurring theme for me).
Took my time getting dryed off and everything set to avoid a mental meltdown on the bike.
I felt pretty comfortable with the overall pace. The climb out of Branchport was the only real negative for me. I probably could have used some hill training prior to the race to get the muscle strength required to sustain a hard pace during climbs. The rolling hills were not a problem, just the sustain climbs. Since my workouts were consistently below 20 mph, I was happy with the average speed for the bike portion.
The bike portion was 5 minutes faster than last year - probably some due to the new paving and part a harder effort.
This was probably the weakest part of my day - rightly so given the half a dozen training runs prior to the race. The first half was spent just trying to keep my feet going forward. Once I hit the turn around I found the ability to begin lengthening my stride and "picked-up" the pace. While overall I would prefer to be just under 8:00 minute/mile pace, and was just over a minute slower than last year (given last year I wanted to "push" the run - which still didn't happen), I can live with the results given the few training runs.
