Pre-race routine:

Ate oatmeal for breakfast and skipped morning coffee. I had packed everything the night before so I went right to the race
Event warmup:

Ran 1/2 a mile on the track. Some people were warming up in the other pool with the master's class, including 1 guy in a wet suit,but I wasn't sure if we were allowed to
Swim
  • 08m 14s
  • 400 meters
  • 02m 04s / 100 meters
Comments:

You leave every 10 seconds and are seeded on how fast you say you swim a 400 in. I passed the guy in front of me and got out 5 or 6 seconds second or so before him. This means I gained 15 seconds on him in the swim. However, he ran to the mat and I jogged. So I lost all but 1 of the seconds I gained.
What would you do differently?:

Run to the mat.
Transition 1

Comments:

Put my bike on the inside lane in the transition area. Quick transition.

Run from the mat.

I did better than I expected since I hadn't done as much hill training as I had wanted to.
Post race
Warm down:

Stretched and watched people come in. No massage this year.

Event comments:

I really like this race. It is challenging with the hills but a good early season race (especially since the swim is in a pool.)
