Pre-race routine:

Same as usual, woke up, breakfast with cereal and bananas and off I went to the race.
Event warmup:

some strides, jogged a bit and did a nice dynamic warm up. Then I went to my corral and waited for the gun.

  • 21.08 kms
  • 04m 59s  min/km

Love this course! Third times and still flat, fast and a lot of cheering everywhere.
Decided to not look at my HR datas and go only by RPE. Was doing very well until 17k mark when I suffered a bit.
1:45 pace bunny catch me and I decided to grab the train and push it.
Last bit was "all out" and was very happy crossing the line in the 1:45 range.
2 years ago was 2:40... 1 hour gained in 2 years... not bad ;)
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, good nutrition, good pacing
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched, grab food and walked to keep the body moving

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I focused more on tri this season so I guess more speed training would have been nice, but, oh well, I'm very happy with what I've done :)

Event comments:

I'm sure I'll do it again next year... 4 year in a row ;)
