  • 36m 7s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 12s / 100 yards

Kicked HARD in the first 100 yrds. Major back issues through the entire swim.
What would you do differently?:

Not get my ass kicked in the swim.
Transition 1
  • 02m 52s

Quarter mile run from the water to T1, not sure if it was factored in with swim time or t1 time. Either way, it sucked.
  • 1h 16m 48s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 19.41 mile/hr

Spent maybe 20% of the time in aero. Spent most of the bike stretching and attempting to find some form of comfort, which proved to be useless. Took in a gu at the start of lap 2. The gu came back up later in the lap. Unable to keep down any nutrition throughout the rest of the race.
Transition 2
  • 01m 17s

T2 was the only part of my race that was decent.
  • 56m 3s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 09m 02s  min/mile

Couldn't keep down anything but water. Every step it felt like my back was compressing.
Post race
Warm down:

Went straight to the aid tent. Got an ice bath and then went straight to a massage and then to a chiropractor.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Back issues. THis was the most painful race to date...nothing went well...seemed out of my control. On the bright side, I still have my fitness to build on for future races...where I wont have these physical issues.
