Pre-race routine:

Powerbar about 30 mins pre-race. Roctane GU about 15 min pre-race.

Nothing. No strokes in the lake. Rode my bike a bit an hour before, but that was more of a mechanical test.

  • 880 yards
  • 01m 38s / 100 yards
Comments:

Felt like I was loosing my breath about 1/4 or 1/3 of the way in, so eased up a bit.
What would you do differently?:

Not much - just not swim trained right now!
Transition 1
  • 01m 34s
Comments:

Struggled with putting on thin long sleeve shirt while wet because it was chilly. Good call, but just slow in T1 because of it.
What would you do differently?:

I don't think I'd swim in a long sleeve shirt, so wouldn't do much different.

What would you do differently?:

Not too much! The trainer time has helped! (And it was a beautiful day!)
Transition 2
  • 00m 35s
Comments:

Faster than last year by 11 seconds, but mainly due to a better spot in transition.
What would you do differently?:

Not much - even had to take extra time to rip off long sleeve shirt.

  • 03m 50s  min/km
Comments:

I didn't push through mile 1.5 to mile 2.5 as good as last year. I could try to keep it stronger there.
Post race
Warm down:

Saw a PT guy there to work on my sore left butt cheek. He worked a few areas gently. Then a bit of random stretching.

Event comments:

Fun race and a beautiful day!
