Pre-race routine:

Up 4:30AM; protein/cytomax shake and 1/2 slice bread with peanut-butter
Event warmup:

Dynamic warm-ups plus a swim out to first buoy.
  • 20m 42s
  • 880 yards
  • 02m 21s / 100 yards

May just take time to move up in the swim. Should be able to shave 2m by 2012.
Transition 1
  • 02m 11s

Maybe 10s to shave here.
  • 36m 5s
  • 12.3 miles

What would you do differently?:

Carry cytomax-mix on the bike (in addition to water)
Transition 2

Not much time to shave here.
  • 34m 44s
  • 4.4 miles
  • 07m 53s  min/mile

Know I can do better - by 20s/m, which should give me almost 2m.
Stomach cramps ~mile 3 (not sooner, tg).
What would you do differently?:

More distance training; heat training.
Find pre-race foods with less fiver.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around - drank, ate.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Too little run-training (result of twisted ankle in June); stomach cramps in mile-3 of run; swim skills.

Event comments:

Great sprint - will be back in 2012.
