Pre-race routine:

Woke up, had breakfast, drove to race site.
Event warmup:

Set up transition. Used the porta-can. 100 meter w/u swim. Waited and stretched.
  • 05m 39s
  • 300 meters
  • 01m 53s / 100 meters

Not sure why my time was slower than my last training session. 300 meter swim on that one was 5 minutes even.
What would you do differently?:

Don't know. Probably need more speed session in the pool.
Transition 1
  • 00m 50s

nothing to add
What would you do differently?:

  • 27m 37s
  • 10 miles
  • 21.73 mile/hr

Better speed than I thought
What would you do differently?:

Practice more. As usual.
Transition 2
  • 01m 17s

I put below average on racking bike because I almost put my bike in the wrong spot, oops.Had trouble getting socks on. I usually don't have that problem.
  • 22m 36s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 32s  min/mile

Took a little too long for legs to get un-wobbly.
What would you do differently?:

Run faster
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around until transition was open, then left

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not going faster. Training drops in June when my daughter is out of school. It becomes, almost, nonexistent.

Event comments:

This was a last minute decision tri when I couldn't get the days off I need for BSLT. Which is a good thing because of my lack of training the last month. I would put this on my list of local tri's to do. I am happy and disappointed in my time. I missed the podium by 1.06 but, happy I beat my goal time by almost 10 minutes.
