Set Up Events
68F / 20C
Total Time = 3h 02m 12s
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = 55-59
Age Group Rank = 7/15
Pre-race routine:

Infinit Nutrition, 2 scoops. Banana.
Event warmup:

Foam roller stretches, rolled feet, wall stretches.
  • 42m 15s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 35s / 100 yards

From now on I will be in the front of any wave. This really caught me by surprise and has never happened before. Didn't mess me up, just a little disappointed I let it happen.
What would you do differently?:

Arrive early for the wave and get up front. I liked the Zogg goggles and used the Tyr the night before. No fogging issues at all, even with the overcast sky and dark lens, visibility was great.
Transition 1
  • 01m 37s

Too many people clogging up the path and bikes sliding out.
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 21m 22s
  • 27 miles
  • 19.91 mile/hr

Happy with this ride.
What would you do differently?:

Really would not do anything different.
Transition 2
  • 01m 56s

Thought my time would be better with this, but nothing happened to slow me down in T2.
What would you do differently?:

  • 55m 15s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 54s  min/mile

Besides my glutes acting up and a hilly course I did better than expected on the run portion of this course.
What would you do differently?:

I think using my tri bike and all the hill in this course caused my glutes to "burn"
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

My glutes but I'm actually glad because I've been trying to get them to "fire" for well over a year.

Event comments:

Setup Events does a great job. Tried to get a massage, but there was a very long waiting list and most people on it did not get a massage.

Performance: Below average
Started swim late, I was in the tail of the wave and the horn went off and I was still wading (along with plenty of others!)
Course: Nice temp for swim, got in my groove and just kept going. My time is way off from last year, starting late didn't help but there is something wrong and I think I'm going to have to connect with Lance Leo to see what's going on.

No Garmin, left it on the bike.
Course: Very hilly course. My glutes off the bike were never "burning" so much after a ride like this event. It took two miles before they started to settle down, which means I was not running all that fast. After mile 3 I was okay and picked up the pace.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right
