Pre-race routine:

Slept horribly the night before. i always am so pumped up that i cant sleep
4:30--PB&J and a banana
5:30--arrived at race site and set up transition area, drink Gatorade Endurance
6:30--1/2 mile jog,
Event warmup:

1/2 mile job, it was very hot so i was sweating a lot
  • 11m 7s
  • 500 yards
  • 02m 13s / 100 yards

Felt really strong for the first half of the swim. the rest of the swim was rough. some jerk swam over me about 100 meters from the line and almost drowned me. This is definitely my worst event.
Transition 1
  • 00m 48s

my best one yet! i have got this down
What would you do differently?:

  • 41m 3s
  • 13 miles
  • 19.00 mile/hr

My fastest race pace to date. I was really sapped from the swim early on and had trouble catching my breath at the beginning. I think i can push this harder but i am happy with my progress thus far. Last year at this race i averaged about 17 mph over the course.
What would you do differently?:

Swim better so i could push harder at the beginning
Transition 2
  • 00m 35s

What would you do differently?:

  • 24m 8s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 46s  min/mile

Again this is my strongest event and where i make up the most time. Felt strong the whole time and left it all out on the course which makes me happy.
What would you do differently?:

Swim better
Post race
Warm down:

Walk around and drink Gatorade

What limited your ability to perform faster:


Event comments:

LONG LONG wait for transition area to reopen but that is not the RD's fault. i love this race and will do it every chance i get.
