82F / 28C
Total Time = 6h 30m 16s
Overall Rank = 81/156
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 15/22
Pre-race routine:

Drank a Gatorade G1 and a 1 scoop HEED w/24 oz of water.
Event warmup:

I rode my bike to start, about 1 mile and I got in the water early for a 5 min swim
  • 36m 16s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 43s / 100 yards

With the altitude and cold water, I was finding it very hard to maintain 3 stroke breathing. I started alternating 2-2-3-2-2-3 to give both sides equal time
What would you do differently?:

This was a good swim for me. I am going to work on a higher SR without loosing form.
Transition 1
  • 02m 41s

I did well. I was not rushing, methodical. Timing mat was right at water, so T1 includes wetsuit strip and a jog up boat ramp.
What would you do differently?:

Run a bit more.
  • 3h 31m 2s
  • 56 miles
  • 15.92 mile/hr

The tailwind going out did not make up for the headwind and hills coming back. I am weak on the bike and the wind was not a help
What would you do differently?:

Need more bike training.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Time included in Run, but I guess about 2-3 minutes here. I reapplied sunscreen, that took a minute or so. My legs felt ok.
What would you do differently?:

Get some spray sunscreen
  • 2h 20m 15s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 10m 43s  min/mile

Hot, altitude, and hills. I did ok, was not mentally strong enough to keep running. I wanted to finish, but HR was very hard to control, so I walk-ran most of the miles.
What would you do differently?:

I need more bricks with longer runs
Post race
Warm down:

I walked around transition and went back down to lake to soak legs/hips.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Altitude and wind beat me up.

Event comments:

This course schooled me along with the wind and altitude. I finished, goal #1 and I finished sub-7 hours, goal #2, and I almost finished sub-6:30, goal #3. I live to race another day.
