Total Time = 5h 29m 15s
Overall Rank = 72/694
Age Group = 35-39
Age Group Rank = 14/95
Pre-race routine:

got up at 5 and eat. then gathered my stuff and went down to the trans.
Event warmup:

swam alittle bit
  • 33m 15s
  • 2112 yards
  • 01m 34s / 100 yards

swim was tough. I guess there where a few boats around because I got hit by a bunch of big waves.
I also got very hot in my full sleeve suit. I am going to be looking into a sleevless.
Transition 1
  • 03m 42s

long transition
Its like 150-175 yards from the water
  • 2h 57m 8s
  • 56 miles
  • 18.97 mile/hr

Im so week on the bike. I am trying to get faster but it just seems like I am not getting any faster
What would you do differently?:

train more on the bike!!
Transition 2
  • 00m 51s
  • 1h 54m 16s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 43s  min/mile

I am most dissapointed with my run. I had been really running good. I started out holding just under 8 pace and felt like I was fine but when I hit mile 8 or so I just started going down hill. I ended up with 8:45 pace. I just pushed to hard in the wind on the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Ride more so Im stronger on the bike. So I don't have to dig so deep on the bike and I will have something left for the run.
Post race
Warm down:

stretch, eat,walked

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I think I was not fully rested. I think I messed up on the taper for this race. My time was about like normal but this race was really tough for me.

Event comments:

I like this race I have done it two time and will more that likely do it again.
