Pre-race routine:

Got up in hotel room and ate my usual breakfast; an egg and some toast. Stretched and then got on my bike and road to the race start. Set up my transition area.
Event warmup:

Stretched, road my bike about 5 minutes, did some running drills.
  • 09m 49s
  • 1760 yards
  • 34s / 100 yards

Swim was cancelled due to box jellyfish warnings. 1 mile run instead. I purposely did not go out too fast not knowing how I would feel transitioning to the bike.
Transition 1
  • 01m 11s

switching from running shoes to bike shoes was a bit tricky with the pine needles on the ground, I guess I would need a bigger towel to step on so I can wipe my feet before switching shoes.
What would you do differently?:

see above
  • 40m 48s
  • 12 miles
  • 17.65 mile/hr

The hills I train on here are a bit more steap so I may had a advantage getting up them. Plus I much rather climb a hill than hit a strong headwind!!!! Fast course. Overall I loved racing on my roadbike and can't wait to do it again.
What would you do differently?:

I need to be smoother in changing gears. A few times I did not do that right and I think someone may have passed me because of that.
Transition 2
  • 00m 47s

Very happy with this transition!
What would you do differently?:

Maybe a quick stretch of the quads but I didn't notice them when I was running.
  • 25m 56s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 08m 20s  min/mile

I don't know how I ran that fast. I felt slower and my husband said I look faster in the beginning that when I finished. I did have to be careful on the finish since we were running on the grass, I did not want to twist an ankle.
What would you do differently?:

I need to start to run longer when I train hopefully I will feel better when I race.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around and strecthed.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The first run I guess I could of ran faster but not knowing how I would feel on the bike, I think choosing to take it easy helped my overall bike time. I felt real good on the bike and maybe could have gone a bit harder but probably did just right becase the run after the bike felt very hard.

Event comments:

I think we could have done the swim, there wasn't even any signs posted and there were lots of swimmers in the water. They should have decided on the night before and had us warned one way or the other! I am a stronger swimmer than I am a runner!!!!!
It was fun to meet up with fellow BT'er "Tizzy" she was a great help and very encouraging the last few weeks leading up to the race!
