Wow...what a swim for my first Tri. I guess you could call it swimming....It was more like flailing aimlessly. I was freaked out over the big waves (thought this was the gulf!). Was suprised I was freaked out because I feel confident in the water.
What would you do differently?:

Uh, just swim.
Transition 1
  • 06m
Comments:

I was so out of breath from the "swim" and run up the beach. Walked thru transition and took my time. I didn't time myself for the transitions but it was about 6 minutes (maybe 5 & change...maybe 6 & change). Since this was my first I was trying to just stay calm. Sat on my towel, rinsed feet, had a gel and some water, got on socks/shoes/helmet/glasses and jogged out of transition with bike.
What would you do differently?:

Faster!
Bike
  • 56m 55s
  • 18 miles
  • 18.98 mile/hr
Comments:

Did better on the bike than I thought. The bridge turned out to be easy. I'm still not sure what the mileage was? I thought it ended up being 18 but my bike computer didn't work so not sure. I kept a really steady cadence so that was a plus.
What would you do differently?:

Complete my tri bike so I can go faster. My heavy, old Trek 1000 isn't going to cut it anymore.
Transition 2
  • 04m 53s
Comments:

Again, transitions killed me. I was a little disoriented during these and didn't want to forget anything so just took my time. Had another gel.
What would you do differently?:

Faster!
Run
  • 38m 30s
  • 4 miles
  • 09m 37s  min/mile
Comments:

I had to take a few walk breaks unfortunately. My legs felt heavy. Did good out of transition though (maybe I went to fast out of T2).
What would you do differently?:

No walk breaks.

Event comments:

This was my first Tri so I don't know how to compare it. My goal was to keep it under 2 hours and I acheived that. It was harder than I thought but a blast! Can't wait for my next one.
