Krewe of Hebe
Total Time = 00m
Overall Rank = /
Age Group = F45-59
Age Group Rank = 4/7
Pre-race routine:

Slept through alarm. No breakfast--Atkins shake on way to race.
Event warmup:

Jogged, stretched, did a few starting-speed swim sets. Gel 40 minutes before race.
  • 25m 22s
  • 962 yards
  • 02m 38s / 100 yards
Transition 1
  • 01m 21s

Stupid latex swim cam got stuck on my head and I swear it was like Jim Carrey in Pixar pulling his head off--the cap stretched forever but would not come off! It was ridiculous. (Yes I did eventually get it off.) Had trouble getting helmet buckled. On way out of T1 couldn't get my gel in my back pocket so I had to eventually stow it in my shorts leg.
What would you do differently?:

Well, now I know where my gel pocket is!
  • 1h 01m 1s
  • 15.53 miles
  • 15.27 mile/hr

For me this ride was not good. I struggled on the hills, finding a good cadence, getting my head up. I just have not found a good relationship with the Felt.
What would you do differently?:

Practice more on the Felt.
Transition 2
  • 01m 34s
  • 36m 32s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 11m 45s  min/mile

SUCKED! I have not been keeping up my core work and it showed on the run. Side stitches. Had to run, walk, run, walk. It would not have moved me up in rank, as the next lady in second beat me by 6 minutes, but it would have helped my morale to know I had done my best.
What would you do differently?:

Do my core work.
Post race
Warm down:

Had baked potato, half a Coke, so did not crash.
