Pre-race routine:

got up at 4am. packed the car. got there at 7 and picked up packet and got ready
Event warmup:

  • 13m 21s
  • 600 yards
  • 02m 13s / 100 yards

good swim
Transition 1
  • 02m 35s

slow getting off wetsuit
  • 50m 53s
  • 17 miles
  • 20.05 mile/hr

i was happy. this is not good for me on the bike but considering my weight and training I was happy.
Transition 2
  • 01m

better than it felt.
  • 42m 6s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 13m 35s  min/mile

I shredded my calves on the bike and i could hardly lift my feet. the run started out uphill and I had to walk a couple times. I struggled most of the way. I picked up a little at the turn but when i got on uphill trail, I had to walk. I had Heart Rate left,but could run up hill. I might can blame some of this on road bike, but my belly is the biggest problem. Slowest 5k ever in a sprint triathlon.
Post race
Warm down:

race site had a gym and I took a shower.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

weight and lack of training. also, toughest sprint course i have ever raced.

Event comments:

tons of volunteers, very organized, well marked and monitored course. This was a first class race and one of the best organized races i have ever done. Post race was good, results were fast. The only complaint was door prizes. They had so many, it took an hour to give them all away and we didn't win any.
