  • 02m 34s / 100 yards

at the point turning toward the return leg buoy, the sun is in my face and I don't see anything! Follow the bobbing heads. A lot of duckweed and grass in the water. they allowed a swim to the left of the final buoy because of all the weeds.
What would you do differently?:

remember the tinted goggles.
Transition 1
  • 03m 6s

kinda slow. right knee was a bit tight.
it is a VERY short stretch from mount line to first corner. the focus is solely on not getting tangled up with another bike.
  • 42m 20s
  • 14 miles
  • 19.84 mile/hr

With HED 9 wheels on. i wonder if the added weight on a short course is a detriment, but I still think it helped. Tried to keep pushing all the way around. good times!
Transition 2
  • 02m 6s

Actually felt like T2 went pretty well. Wasn't sure how I would feel after pushing on the bike.
  • 35m 45s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 11m 32s  min/mile

I felt good coming out of T2. But once I started the run, I could feel the soreness from the motorcycle accident, so I decided I would do a 2 min run/30sec walk. Heartrate stayed down, even with the heat. That seemed to work okay.
Post race
Warm down:

Walking, drinking water, cool-pops.

Event comments:

I felt pretty good about my effort, given the soreness from the day before. I need to work on my swim, and my run pacing.
