Pre-race routine:

Bagel with PB and OJ. Coffee, drove to warsaw, kinda behind schedule, IMO.

Saw running2far in line for the crappers. nice guy.
Event warmup:

Didn't get that great of a warmup. Ran for like 10 minutes, no bike and no swim as teh water was closed. It really f'd up my swim. I shoul dhave been about 90 seconds faster.
  • 08m 24s
  • 440 yards
  • 01m 55s / 100 yards

Came out pretty fast, but lost it. I jacked this swim up on the back in portion, so Ijust finished nice and easy figuring I would slay on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Slow down at the start and dictate my pace better.
Transition 1
  • 01m 47s

Took my time. Got ready to put it down in my own time.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe pick it up a piece.
  • 40m 1s
  • 13.5 miles
  • 20.24 mile/hr

Did OK here. Could have done better, but there you go. Passed Hayes here. Gave me encouragement. See, a nice guy, like I said.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe kicked it up a notch. Could have done better on the inclines.
Transition 2
  • 01m 44s

Not a real barn burner.
What would you do differently?:

I need speed laces. I miss my old shoes.
  • 23m
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 40s  min/mile

Ran pretty good. Slow the first mile, then ratcheted it up.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe just a squinch faster the first mile.
Post race
Warm down:

walked it off, had some water.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

my own limits, except there is this thing called lactate that kinda didn't help on the bike part.
