Pre-race routine:

left bike over night and set up on race day...chatted with friends and got into race mode...
Event warmup:

light stretching....suffered back injury on wednesday before race and to visited chiropractor Thursday and i did very little warm up afraid of possiblly irritating something that was causing me very little pain on saturday morning...
  • 46m 5s
  • 2112 yards
  • 02m 11s / 100 yards

i need more swim time....could have maybe cut off 5 minutes if i had proper swim training
What would you do differently?:

train more...
Transition 1
  • 02m 50s

took my time and did it right....i had 69.1 miles to go
What would you do differently?:

  • 2h 34m 24s
  • 56 miles
  • 21.76 mile/hr

head wind and a few hills benefited me because of my size and i was using my Trek Madone Road bike...hills and head winds killed alot of guys in my ag riding tribikes
What would you do differently?:

nothing planned my ride and rode my plan...(home court advantage)
Transition 2
  • 02m 58s

once again i knew i needed to take my time and let my body acclimate just a little so I took my time putting my shoes on and walked to the bike out grabbed a water drank it down and was off..
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 47m 48s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 14s  min/mile

I grew up on that run course (literally) it goes right by my mom and dads house so i knew just what to expect or so i thought...first time i have ever ran that course after biking 56 miles...two strikes against me from the get go... (1) i had to sit out running for the month of june achellies tendonitis which turned into bursitis..(2) underestimated the course, the heat, and biking prior, so i though i was pacing myself proper first 3 mile went at 22 minutes flat and then it hit me at mile 4...but i slowly went from an 8:50 mile from 4-5 back to at least an 8:15 the last 5...
What would you do differently?:


i rate my preformance as average due to not getting the miles in due to injury...i could have knocked 3 - 5 minutes off my time had i go to get those need miles in june...
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

(1) heel tendonitis prevented run training in june
(2) swim training...I need more...

Event comments:

Best ran and organized race to date....although i would have liked to start my race before 8:30 a.m. to help beat some of the heat...START RACE SOONER....PROS left at 8 a.m.
