Cold as hell - hands were useless in T2 which slowed time (getting helmet off, changing shoes, fiddling with garmin)
What would you do differently?:

Put "hot" insoles into bike shoes
Maybe could have gone a little harder?

Felt a little breathless at times, kept stride short and cadence high to protect knee/pes anserinus/hamstring
What would you do differently?:

Go slower earlier to catch breath and then push it harder afterwards? Definitely felt like I could have gone harder
Post race
Warm down:

Try to get warm - towels and coffee

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Caution with knee - still some hamstring soreness this week and strained pes anserinus
Held back pushing off wall during swim, held back on run
Cold hands in T2

Event comments:

Good first race of the season - swim and run distance were perfect for where I'm at fitness-wise. Normally bike would have felt awkwardly short, but it was so damn cold I couldn't wait to get it over with.

Nice low-key local tri and great for this time of year
