Pre-race routine:

  • 1h 16m 44s
  • 4224 yards
  • 01m 49s / 100 yards
Comments:

goggles got kicked off my face in the first 25 yards. I had a mild panic attack, had to stop and collect myself. Pulled it togeter and had a good first lap, and a very solid second lap
Transition 1
  • 07m 56s
Comments:

tough to get a fast transition time considering how far you have to go to get from the lake to the tent, also, I got out of the water with a lot of people so we all were doing the same thing at the same time in the same place.
What would you do differently?:

Organize my bags a little bit better. I had too much stuff that I would never use.
Bike
  • 6h 29m 44s
  • 112 miles
  • 17.24 mile/hr
Transition 2
  • 06m 28s
What would you do differently?:

Again, too much stuff in my bag. I can run with two amphi pods and two in the special needs bag. special needs should always have sports-slick or something similar.
Run
  • 5h 11m 8s
  • 26.2 miles
  • 11m 53s  min/mile
Comments:

I got good at using the sponges in the aid stations. I started to really look forward to them.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

I needed more quality run work. I will have to dial in a better sense of my power for next year - and stick to it!!

Event comments:

This is such a hard event. There are many areas that I can improve in with my prep for 2007. Looks like Kona in 2008 or in 2009 when I make the leap to 40 AG. Oh and by the way - Matthew Hanshaw, You Are an Ironman.
