High Five Events
99F / 37C
Total Time = 2h 18m 39s
Overall Rank = 14/909
Age Group = M 40-44
Age Group Rank = 2/142
Pre-race routine:

woke up at 4 and had some coffee and toast with pb. Put on the tri tats and hit the road.
Event warmup:

  • 25m 26s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 33s / 100 yards

They changes the course due to vegetation in lake and it may have been a little long but I was happy with the swim overall. My swim training has not been great and my goal was to just keep a good pace. The M-Z wave I was in seemed to have some solid swimmers so I was able to draft for a while which was a nice change. The turn towards shore was a mess as there was a green bouy that no one was using.
Transition 1
  • 02m 39s

not a bad transition as I think i was 9th in the age group.
  • 1h 05m 36s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 22.73 mile/hr

It is a fun 3 loop course and I knew it was going to get a little crowded but I continued to push it pretty hard and I am very happy with the avg here.
What would you do differently?:

Just need to get out and ride more.
Transition 2
  • 02m 3s

Not too happy with this time as I was 27th in the AG. I spent a little extra time putting on socks as I knew I would need it on the run.
What would you do differently?:

Not wear socks but I prefer to wear them at this distance.
  • 42m 53s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 06m 55s  min/mile

I was happy that I kept a solid pace throughout. There is no doubt that I did not leave much out there as the last mile or so was rough. After looking at the results, I guess I was pretty consistent throughout which I am very happy with. I think I had the 27th fastest splits on all 3 overall which is very odd.
Post race
Warm down:

Post race massage was great and followed that up with a Red Hook IPA.
