Pre-race routine:

Event warmup:

~1000 wu in indoor pool.
  • 07m 47s
  • 450 meters
  • 01m 44s / 100 meters

Horrible. Had to slow twice and stop once for water in goggles. Maybe wearing Nike DryFit longsleeve and arm warmers was not the best idea.
Transition 1
  • 01m 44s

Long run to the bikes. Besides that it was fine. Put on full finger gloves.
  • 27m 4s
  • 10 miles
  • 22.17 mile/hr

Solid bike.
Transition 2
  • 01m 25s

Hands were frozen even with the gloves on. Hard to get shoes on.
  • 21m 16s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 06m 50s  min/mile

Took me about a mile for the legs to come around. Had trouble breathing through nose prob b/c of this small cold I have.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Being a bit under the weather.

Event comments:

Pretty sure the guy who came in second (who started in my wave of 12 ppl), cut the run course. I saw him in T2 so he was about 1min ahead of me. Next time I see him was him on his way back and me on my way out. My watch said 8min. Took me ~11 to the turn-around, that means he put 5min into me in the first half of the run, but only 1min on the back half. Doesn't add up. Plus the volunteer at the t/a told me I was in first place. He would have beaten me anyways, but it's just annoying that they didn't have a mat at the t/a point.
