Pre-race routine:

Woke up early and had the typical morning routine. Drove to the race site with no issues. Since there was bike check and number tattoos, it was a very slick morning. Had lots of time to relax in transition.
Event warmup:

Walked the LONG walk to the start line and swam a very small amount in the water to get adjusted to the temperature. Felt pretty good.
Swim
  • 08m 34s
  • 400 yards
  • 02m 08s / 100 yards
Comments:

Great swim. Open water has been great this year. I feel more and more confident in each race.
What would you do differently?:

Not much that I would do differently. I do need to get a little more calm when feet are right in front of my face. My breathing and pulse jump when that happens.
Transition 1
  • 04m 4s
Comments:

This SUCKED!!! The swim time was longer along with the T1 time because of the race layout. There was a quarter mile run across a bridge/dock and up a huge hill after exiting the water.
What would you do differently?:

Relax more and not let the hill get into my head. I knew it was coming but it still killed me. Again, I need more practice in T1.
Bike
  • 39m 31s
  • 13 miles
  • 19.74 mile/hr
Comments:

Killed the bike segment. Great course. I still have more that I can push, but it was definitely one of my best ever bike splits. I really hit the gas hard based on what I learned from the race a month ago.
What would you do differently?:

Still continue to push the limits and learn to go harder. There is more gas in the tank than a I ever thought.
Transition 2
  • 01m 20s
Comments:

Much better T2. This is getting much better and I'm feeling more comfortable.
What would you do differently?:

Not much. I need to practice this, but I need to focus on T1 more than T2.
Run
  • 27m 15s
  • 5 kms
  • 05m 27s  min/km
Comments:

Great run for me! Again pushed myself harder than I ever have and it paid off. One of the best 5k times for me ever. Not just in triathlon.
What would you do differently?:

Keep working on my speed. For the first time in my races, my run didn't cause be to be dropped way back in the pack.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and stretched. Grabbed some food. I finished so early the pizza wasn't there yet. Tried to stay in the shade as much as possible.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Keep training and pushing each time. I keep getting faster and faster with each race. I feel like I completely fulfilled what I was capable of right now. I know I will be faster though.

Event comments:

Great course and very fun race. Something does need to be done about T1. That's a killer! Way too early to have to go through something like that!. I highly recommend this race to someone that is interested in triathlon.

The triathlon made a lot of sense as I could fit the training around early mornings and other times that wouldn't eat too much into my family time. Things never go completely to plan do they?

Both the Lake Triathlon Shoe CX210TRI and the Lake Road Shoe CX225 offer distinct advantages. I tested both shoes and found them to be extremely comfortable, good looking and durable.
