Pre-race routine:

Up at 5:00. Oatmeal at 5:30, left house at 6:00. Got to race at 7:00. Set up bike and got ready
Event warmup:

A little warm up running to get the hear rate up.
  • 12m 7s
  • 875 yards
  • 01m 23s / 100 yards

A decent swim. Felt comfortable the entire way. Very pleased with performance
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 37s

Really biffed it coming out of the transition area. Had rubber bands on shoes, jumped on the bike and promptly knocked one of my shoes off. Had to dismount and go back for my shoe, lay down the bike, put it on and re-start.
What would you do differently?:

Practice the transition more.
  • 34m 28s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 22.80 mile/hr

A hard but very solid effort on the bike. I felt very good about the effort. Perhaps a little hard because my running time was slower
What would you do differently?:

Back off just a touch
Transition 2
  • 01m 29s

Still need to work on this. Need to get my feet out before the transition and get helmet off nearing rack.
What would you do differently?:

  • 22m 41s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 17s  min/mile

Pretty hard and I was out of gas from the bike

Ease off on the bike
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around, eat.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of base training.

Thanks.  It was a really fun day.  With perfectly flat water and cool temps you couldn't ask for better weather.  On a normal July morning in Chelan it would have been at least 10 degrees warmer with additional radiant heat from the direct sun.
