Armadale, Western Australia
35C / 95F
Total Time = 00m
Overall Rank = 60/437
Age Group = 25-29
Age Group Rank = 11/57
Pre-race routine:

Woke up at 5.45am and had three pieces of toast and a coffee felt more comfortable then last time
Event warmup:

did a 4km run to get the legs moving
  • 14m 3s
  • 750 meters
  • 01m 52s / 100 meters

I went out too hard too early...and the water in that lake was absolutely disgusting I could not see anything infront of me therefore making drafting nigh impossible without touching someones feet
What would you do differently?:

Slow down at the start and get into a rate that suits me...
Transition 1
  • 01m 11s

No mistakes but I can get quicker here
  • 34m 20s
  • 20 kms
  • 34.95 km/hr

Estastic about this...I rode comfortably and used the straight with a bit of the tailwind very well. I kept up with the bloke that finished 5th until the last 200ms so I knew my pace was alright
What would you do differently?:

Nothing I felt great
Transition 2
  • 01m 11s

THe fike fell off the rack and I couldn't find my place as that I was at the wrong bay...
What would you do differently?:

Know my number very well....
  • 24m 2s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 49s  min/km

IT was bloody humid that within 500m of the run I unzipped the trisuit...found it hard to find a rate that i could contain
What would you do differently?:

Need to do more work on fatigued legs...start taking smaller steps
Post race
Warm down:

A can of coke

What limited your ability to perform faster:

My run is an issue and i am the first one to admit that but the other two legs were really good for me and I am happy to get into the position of getting around the front 5 in the near future if the run can improve
