Pre-race routine:

Up at 4:30,. peanut butter toast, a bannana, and a cup of coffee. On the road by 6:10am, at the race grounds by 7:15am.
Event warmup:

Wetsuit on 15 minutes early, some swimming before had to get loosened up.
  • 30m 26s
  • 750 yards
  • 04m 04s / 100 yards

Pace to the first bouy was good, easy solid swim, then i began having dificlutly catching my breath - next thing I knew if was 10 strokes front crawl, the 10 side stroke to catch up on my breathing
What would you do differently?:

Train more
Transition 1
  • 03m 22s

Long walk up the ramp, trying to catch my breath, plus both calf muscles were cramping - so I did not get in a hurry for anything
What would you do differently?:

Train more
  • 1h 00m 41s
  • 12.4 miles
  • 12.26 mile/hr

Bike went pretty well, had not seen the course, so was not quite sure what to expect - lots of hills, and lots of potholes. Passed quite a few people, felt pretty good.. Ran out of water in aerobar set up, it was already hot anyway, no water on the course.
What would you do differently?:

Have more water and put more effort into keeping it cold
Transition 2
  • 02m 9s

Again, took my time, making sure I did not forget anything important.
  • 53m 59s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 17m 25s  min/mile

I ran the first coulpel of hundred yards, then couldln't keep up with my breathing.. My hips hurt, my calves were cramping badly - so most of the run ended up bieng a walk...
What would you do differently?:

Train more, have more cold water on board.
Post race
Warm down:

Drinking water and walking around

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Lack of training

Event comments:

A good race, started on time, course was well marked, only issue I had was my lack of training...
