Pre-race routine:

hammer heed with water (one scoop); peanut butter english muffin 3+hrs prior to race, 5.5 hrs. sleep :(
Event warmup:

morning stretches, no swim, no bike, no run warmups
  • 19m 59s
  • 820 yards
  • 02m 26s / 100 yards

swimming continues to plague me...had to walk on the bottom for a bit to catch my breath
What would you do differently?:

more training!!! breathing training, stroke efficiency
Transition 1
  • 02m 33s

couldn't get my feet in the shoes due to the insole sliding around. Need to secure insoles into shoes better, and have dry feet.
  • 41m 3s
  • 13.3 miles
  • 19.44 mile/hr

Had a good ride. Strong on the hills. Funny thing, I had a buddy in my age group riding a Scattante. As I was powering up a hill on Weston, I passed a guy on a Scattante, and just assumed it was him. Even gave him a little "Lance wave". I felt all smug that I had passed him (he's a super swimmer and runner, and we're about even on the bike). Well, turns out, it wasn't him. My buddy did a 1:17 to my 1:32 overall, so I was always behind him. Oh well, at least it was a little incentive. Thay Scattante guy never passed me back!
What would you do differently?:

Push harder on the bike. I said before the race I wanted a 20.5 average. I could've done it, but hesitated. I was a bit slow out of T1 getting up to speed on Aviation. Once I got up the first hill to Evans, I was ready to rock and roll though!
Transition 2
  • 02m 18s

Not sure why I was so slow here. I ran from dismount to rack, and from rack to run start.
What would you do differently?:

At White Lake, I had speed laces. Here, I had to tie doubleknots due to no speedlaces on my new shoes. That could shave 30 seconds off easy.
  • 26m 29s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 31s  min/mile

CRAMPING before first mile was over. Once I got through that, I felt pretty good on the run.
What would you do differently?:

Something in nutrition wasn't right. I was dehydrated due to "intestinal issues" earlier in the day.
