Pre-race routine:

Trying to find a parking spot, raining hard.....
  • 27m 15s
  • 1320 yards
  • 02m 04s / 100 yards

Terrible swim, maybe due to lack of warm up or yesterday's workout...probably both
Transition 1
  • 00m
  • 55m 51s
  • 16 miles
  • 17.19 mile/hr

Raining, very slick, had to ride defensively, was a bit of a chicken on the windy descents, too many riders, cramped quarters, slick pavement........
What would you do differently?:

I just need dry roads, this is California.
Transition 2
  • 00m

I had to pee like a race horse and I had to tape my ankle because iof a bad blister on heel....
  • 35m 48s
  • 5 miles
  • 07m 10s  min/mile

Had a very good run....felt very strong....I could have gone even harder in hindsight, making up more for the miserable swim....
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Hanging around the finish area....

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Rain, lousy swim
