Breaststroke the whole time, with small bursts of front crawl. Rested on a surfboard half way through.
What would you do differently?:

Swim front crawl for most, practice more with the waves. Slow, but felt very confident. Run from the water to T1.
Transition 1
  • 05m 12s

Really disoriented. Almost got docked time for having bike off the rack before my helmet went on. Plain Tri Kit, no suit change. Grabbed peanut butter. walked bike out of transition. Used same shoes as bike as in run.
What would you do differently?:

Practice transition more until I get transition under 2:00 minutes. 1:00 minute during practice, because I need time to walk from transition, etc.
  • 1h 14m 26s
  • 15 miles
  • 12.09 mile/hr

Some issues with gear changes. Making odd noises. Climbs were too slow. Biked slow to save for 5k.
What would you do differently?:

Bike faster. Need to train faster as well. Train with race bike.

Warm down:

None. Hugged. Got chips/pizza/banana.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Low aerobic ability during the run, low confidence during the swim, low training during the bike.
