Decent overall transition.

Crazy fast bike split. Power reported was way low, probably due to zeroing issues.

Comments:

Again, solid effort.
Run

  • 10 kms
  • 05m 25s  min/km
Comments:

I was slow as it was, probably because I went too hard on the bike. At mile 4, though, I got an incredibly painful side stitch that I could not get rid of until I had walked almost all of that mile.
Post race
What limited your ability to perform faster:

Probably over doing the bike. My run training had been good up to the race.

Event comments:

The post race food was pretty dismal compared to other races in Austin.

I looked at the swim buoys and start thinking, "Man! How am I ever going to swim that? That looks like a very long distance from the bridge. I have never done it in one go." There's no turning back.

After doing duathlons for the last couple of years, I decided to go for a triathlon. Starting with an Olympic-distance race perhaps wasn't wise, but it was fun (of a sort).

What do you bring to the starting line? What are you going to leave on the course? What will you take with you across the finish line?
