Pre-race routine:

Nervously milled about. Ensured I had everything set up correctly over and over again.
Event warmup:

Did some small stretches and walked around a lot.
  • 08m 14s
  • 1500 meters
  • / 100 meters
Transition 1
  • 00m 50s

In from the run. Yankz or some kind of shoe lace system maybe may have taken a few seconds off. I wore my riding gloves so I didn't have to put them on for the bike. Otherwise I would have probably not worn them at all.
What would you do differently?:

I need something to ID my transition point. It took me a couple of seconds to recognize something that said, "You're parked here!"
  • 45m 56s
  • 15 miles
  • 19.59 mile/hr
What would you do differently?:

Felt great on the bike! I knew I was pushing. Course is super flat. Below sea level.
Transition 2
  • 00m 44s

Felt pretty good about this transistion. Everything worked as planned.
What would you do differently?:

Practice transitions.
  • 29m 25s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 53s  min/km

Felt good on the run. Overtraining probably slowed my run as well as pushing a little too hard on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Not push so hard on the bike.
Post race
Warm down:

Sit in grass and stare up at the sky.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Overtraining. I was a little sore from other runs and bikes. The pool was closed so I didn't swim at all the week before so I thought more running/cycling would be a good thing.

Event comments:

Not enough volunteers. $70 for a race and we get bananas and grapes. Real nice Lightning Bolt style long sleeve shirt.

There was debate about whether the water would be suitable to swim in. It turns out it wasn't according to the race director. He said there were 4-6 feet waves. Funny I saw 1-2 foot waves. It turned into a 1-mile sprint. I wasn't prepared as many other people were. I didn't like it. I felt tight.
