I was just cruising on the swim. Thought I was going a bit faster than I was. I should have known from my easy breathing pattern that I was lollygagging.

Swim harder

Biked great.

Comments:

Went out a bit too quick, so I tried to dial it back at mile 3. The heat finally broke me around mile 9. I plodded along as best as I could and am pretty happy with the time. Heat is not my friend.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretch and eat a little

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Not much. I tried to manage my race based on the expected heat. I am glad that it was cloudy some of the time and overall I had a good race. Next time I'll push the swim harder.

Event comments:

Best run support stations ever.

very strong performance.  Looks like you passed me during the run.  probably around half way through.  

 

Good run for "plodding along" after mile 9

Nice race.

That is one hell of a run. Especially given the conditions.
