Other than being 500m short, it was a good swim. Navigated well, never pushed, but felt like the best swim so far this year.

Good bike. Went out comfortably hard, goal was to be 80-85% of FTW. ENDED up at 82% overall. Backed off a little on the 2nd loop to saver something for the run. Verity pleased with it. Had more in the tank,but I wouldn’t change anything. Only 45 sec faster than last time, which was disappointing, but i felt a lot better getting off the bike too

Comments:

I was dreading the run, having blown up on it several times before. Goal was sub 48, so missed it, but not by much. Kept it steady, all between 7:50-8:30. Overall, I couldn’t have gone much faster, walked at the water stops to drink, sand up the hill on the 2nd loop
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. It’s a terrible course
Post race
Warm down:

Got some water, start in the shade for a few minutes and stretched and then drove home

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Heat

Event comments:

Great venue, always well done. BUT, the swim is ALWAYS short, and the run course is miserable. The swim should be an easy fix. And I’ve run this race with 2 other run courses which were both better than the current one.
