Age Group Rank = 3/9
Pre-race routine:

Got to the site with lots of time to spare. Tab and I picked our spots on the racks and setup our gear. Waited in line to get registered and body marked. Nothing too exciting.
Event warmup:

Went for about a 10 min ride on the bike. I usually go for a run as well but for some reason that didn't happen on this morning - I think that may have come back to hurt me later.
  • 31m 32s
  • 1500 meters
  • 02m 06s / 100 meters

31 mins - haha. Should have been more like 21-22 but the waves, chop and current were nuts!!! It was really tough to see the buoys and do any sighting without stopping and checking. For the first lap, there was a paddler up ahead that I could follow but not for the second. The water was really choppy so it was tough to get in a rhythm at all. As soon as I put my foot down to stand up, both my calves locked up solid!! That has never happened before! I wonder if it's because I didn't go for an easy run before hand?
What would you do differently?:

I dunno, try to go a bit straighter but it was pretty crazy out there.
Transition 1
  • 00m

T1 time is included with the bike split but based on difference between that and my computer time, it was about 1 min.
What would you do differently?:

Get the wetsuit off quicker.
  • 1h 08m 36s
  • 40 kms
  • 34.99 km/hr

I was pretty happy with how this turned out. Power was a bit lower than target (212w) but I'm ok with how it came out. I was in 5th place coming off the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Finish all the honey stingers and get a bit more water into me.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Time is included in the run time but everything went very smoothly.
What would you do differently?:

  • 50m 23s
  • 10 kms
  • 05m 02s  min/km

Another mediocre run. Started out good but started to fade after 3k. Just no zip in the legs.
What would you do differently?:

Run a bit more in the week before the race.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The swim! I was hoping for a 2:20 overall time and given that the swim was about 10 mins long, I'd say I was pretty close to that for the rest of the race.
