80F / 27C
Total Time = 1h 11m 36s
Overall Rank = 46/177
Age Group = M 30-34
Age Group Rank = 5/19
Pre-race routine:

Same old same old. Up at 5:20 ate a english muffin with peanut butter and honey.
Event warmup:

  • 06m 47s
  • 328 yards
  • 02m 04s / 100 yards

Swim went fine. I thought I might be able to do it a little faster but I felt good coming out of the water.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing aside from keep working on my shoulder flexibility and keep swimming.
Transition 1
  • 01m 18s

My fastest sprint T1 that I can remember but I can keep shaving seconds off.
  • 37m 56s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 19.66 mile/hr

Slower than last year by 56 seconds but I trained through the race so I wasn't expecting to necessarily be able to put up the same time as I did on fresh legs.
What would you do differently?:

Ride more in the early spring.
Transition 2
  • 01m 2s

Nothing much to say about T2.
  • 24m 35s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 54s  min/mile

I was hoping to puch it under 24 but i faded a few seconds per mile each mile. Tired legs didn't help. I also didn't really go for broke out there either. The only uncomfortable portion was the 3 minute climb up the hill after mile 2.
What would you do differently?:

Not slack off coming out of marathon training!
Post race
Warm down:

Went home and rode the bike to get the rest of my scheduled bike training in for the day.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training in April and May. Tired legs from IM build.

Event comments:

Great local race that I will keep doing.
