Pre-race routine:

Didn't sleep very well in the hotel. Got up 3 hours before the race, had a cup of coffee, an OJ and a bagel. I got to the race at 6:30 for the 8:00 start.
Event warmup:

Swam a bit. But very little
  • 8h 52m 3s
  • 440 yards
  • 2h 00m 55s / 100 yards

Man I suck. I had to swim most of this via breast stroke. I just couldn't catch my breath in the swim.
What would you do differently?:

Who knows. Train harder I guess
Transition 1
  • 01m 5s

Wet suit came off OK. Shoes when on fine. 2nd in age group.
What would you do differently?:

  • 40m 29s
  • 14 miles
  • 20.75 mile/hr

Pretty good effort on the bike. Faded a bit on the hills and had some gearting problems on the hills, but felt good and finished well.
What would you do differently?:

Need to train more on hills with the Tri-bike
Transition 2
  • 01m 1s

Was only able to get one foot out of the shoes. So when I dismounted, I had one shoe on and one still in the peddles. I had to pull off the one shoe because I didn't want to run on the grass in the shoe. When I pulled it off, the liner came off and I had to reach down and grab it. I got my shoes on OK, but the lace clip came off and I had to tie my shoe by hand!
What would you do differently?:

Get the shoe clips set better...get my feet out of the shoes sooner.
  • 21m 34s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 56s  min/mile

Felt comfortably hard on the run but stayed out of the red zone. Heart rate was over 150 the entire run. But I feel good about the 6:57 pace.
What would you do differently?:

More speed work in training
Post race
Warm down:


What limited your ability to perform faster:

not enough interval training
