Pre-race routine:

See blog for all details...too much to type it all over again.
  • 50m 9s
  • 2112 yards
  • 02m 22s / 100 yards

My fastest swim so far - good for me. No panic, just couldn't sight.
What would you do differently?:

Work on sighting. Seriously - I can't see worth a darn.
Transition 1
  • 05m 13s

Wetsuit strippers rock.
What would you do differently?:

Not much - fine with my T1 performance. Coulda used a little more sunscreen and grabbed some food?

Hilly! I worked the hills, maybe a little too hard. Fun & challenging course.
What would you do differently?:

Follow my nutrition plan. Take it a little easier to save some for the run.
Transition 2

Bonking...completely at a loss in T2. Not a good thing.
What would you do differently?:

Follow my nutrition plan.

TOO SLOW - because of poor nutrition & hard bike.

Follow my nutrition plan.

Nutrition, nutrition, nutrition.

Some mistakes I made during the Hawaii Ironman 70.3. Don't be caught out on the course not knowing how or not having the equipment to change a flat tire.

It was the morning of Ironman Newfoundland 70.3, I felt queasy. I didn't want to eat or drink anything. I had a full blown case of the pre-race HEEBEE GEEBEES.
