A lot of walking.
Swim

  • 1500 meters
  • 03m 15s / 100 meters
Comments:

I had expected a better swim. The current was pretty strong as I discovered trying to round the 2nd turn buoy. A lot of interference from inexperienced swimmers.
What would you do differently?:

Start near the front instead of the back of the pack. I would have had less problems with slower "weaving swimmers.
Transition 1
  • 04m 6s
Comments:

No flying start, I just didn't have enough practice. I did take my shoes off before my dismount and that went smooth.
What would you do differently?:

More practice and confidence with a flying start.

Comments:

I planned on about a 16.5 mph overall pace. I got 15.9, It turned out to be too much, I didn't have much left for the run.
What would you do differently?:

Not really sure.
Transition 2
  • 02m 50s
Comments:

Not a bad transition.
What would you do differently?:

I'm going to have to practice jumping off moving bike.
Run
  • 1h 17m 2s
  • 6 miles
  • 12m 50s  min/mile
Comments:

A lot of walking, legs just hurt.
What would you do differently?:

Not sure.
Post race
Warm down:

No real warm down. Very tired and even light headed along with some nausea. Sat in the shade a lot until I was sure it would be safe to drive. Couldn't eat for a bout 2 hours after the race.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Probably lack of training aimed specifically for this event. I just trained for too many different events.

Event comments:

Need a bag check in.
I'll be back next year!
