Focused on keeping as steady as possible with the climbs and descents (still ranged up to 65 km/hr). Wind wasn't terrible but present.

Push harder

Fastest run split in the race, left a bit too much on the bike I guess.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

No deviation from IM training plan just dumped the race in the middle of the week.


Event comments:

Super organized, the results actually were posted (unlike the Oly 2 weeks ago).

A good little short course race with some of the faster guys coming out.

Have a goal when you get into the water. If your purpose is distance, then set your pace for endurance. If your objective is speed, then incorporate drills.
