Didn't do any swim workouts in the 3-4 weeks leading up to the race. Didn't figure it would make a difference and - no surprise - it didn't.
What would you do differently?:

Try to make the turns a little faster.
Transition 1
  • 01m 56s
What would you do differently?:

OK T1.
  • 1h 08m 28s
  • 16.5 miles
  • 14.46 mile/hr

Rough road that, combined with the wind and more hills than I expected, made getting up to speed - made the whole ride, actually - very tough. I was shocked at my pace: under 15mph!!! I mean, that's like a slow training ride...
What would you do differently?:

Gotta think about this because I'm honestly not sure. Slow as I was, the matches I burned here really cost me on the run. I think that would've been the case regardless, so this is probably best I can expect.
Transition 2
  • 02m 46s

Sat down and pulled on socks here since I'd not run without socks in months.
What would you do differently?:

Normal transition save for the socks.
  • 38m 20s
  • 3.1 miles
  • 12m 22s  min/mile

Terrible run, but expected. I'd hoped to do a little bit better than this but I knew after getting off a tougher than expected bike leg that it would not be good. Pretty good amount of walking, though I jogged and ran OK. Chest issues rose up, as I feared. Gotta figure out what's up with that...could spell the end of my tri career.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing at this point. Gotta get this chest issue behind me.
Post race
Warm down:

Walked around, ducked down a bottle of water, sat for a bit in the shade to cool off and let the HR slow down.

Did have some light-headedness up to 15-20 minutes after, as though blood pressure had dropped precipitously.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Tough bike course and expected poor run.
