Overall good performance. I need to work on better sighting and a better catch in the wet suit. I was pulling to the right, a lot! My roll in the wet suit was limited...need to work on that!
What would you do differently?:

Practice more OWS!

Wasted time trying to put on compression socks. They ended up tearing, so I scrapped the socks.

Walked/jogged most of the course because of calf problems. My running volume was essentially 0 for the last 6 weeks because of calf injury. Calf flared up during the run. Stopped to stretch and message it a couple times.
