Pre-race routine:

Altered from previous. Ate organic oatmeal 3 hours before start, did not change basil rate and allowed insulin pump to keep pumping(Blood sugar reading at 5 am 155). Drank a bottle of Gatorade Endurance. Got to race registered and set up transition, blood sugar rising as no bolus for breakfast and Gatorade 268 when entered the water. Set pump to 10% of basil for race entirety.
Event warmup:

10 min run/ jog. Hit the water for about 100 warmup swim. Felt sooo much better than 2 weeks ago as was able to breathe and find a rhythm during warmup.

Comments:

Had trouble sighting and got off course a couple of times. I did not push the swim and had a comfortable, cautious stroke. A bit slower than I wanted and had plenty in the tank I was weary of 2 weeks ago which was still lurking in my mind and my goal was to get to the bike.
What would you do differently?:

Pushed harder, though not too much.

May have not left enough leg for the run.

It was very hard course.
What would you do differently?:

With all of the leg and foot problems had in training, some additional runs in training would have helped.
Bricks, Bricks, Bricks added earlier in training would have helped.

Event comments:

My first half iron back after 8 years of inactivity. My goal was to finish and not worry about ranking or placing. The course matched my training courses to a "T". It was a great race with extremely well run and helpful volunteers. I truly loved the course though some real rough roads on the bike. The run course was one of the most challenging I have done in Tri though fair. I would truly recommend this race for someone who wants a challenging half iron!
