Age Group Rank = 4/27
Pre-race routine:

Ate my oatmeal and banana, drove to the race
Event warmup:

None to be had.Couldn’t get in the water, got there too late to ride. Just walked around the start for a bit
  • 10m 18s
  • 1500 meters
  • 41s / 100 meters

Jumping off the riverboat to start was neat, but the distance was WAAAAAY too short. That being said, I felt like I swam very well. NAvigated well, kept it nice and smooth, and was just getting warmed up when it was time to get out. I was expecting a 24 min swim, and when I looked at saw just over 10 min, I felt shortchanged, as the swim is my best leg
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 02m 30s

Luckily we had a long run into T1, as I couldn’t get my wertsuit unzipped. I finally got the zipper and was out of it by the time I got to the bike
What would you do differently?:

  • 1h 18m 54s
  • 44 kms
  • 33.46 km/hr

Good ride on the new bike. Never pushed too hard, but felt comfortable the whole way. I wanted to save something for the run
Transition 2
  • 01m 1s

Went well. Stood up while putting on shoes and socks and this helps save time
  • 47m 40s
  • 10 kms
  • 04m 46s  min/km

I was nervous about the run, as I crashed so bad last time. It was getting hot, and I told myself to start out slow nad speed up as I felt better. First 2 miles were right at 15 min. Slowed only through the water stops the whole way. Never walked. Definitely slowed the last2 miles were almost16 min, but a solid effort overall
What would you do differently?:

More fast training
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around expo for 10 min and then drove home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Heat, lack of speed training

Event comments:

Good race, well organized. I don’t know what to say about the swim course being less than half of what it should’ve been. That was bad. The bike course is nice with no traffic. The run course sucks. Double out and back with no shade in late July. It’s asking for a heat stroke.
