What would you do differently?:

Next time I will put my time as faster on the pace sheet. I didn't know what to put and greatly underestimated putting me way back in the line.
Transition 1
  • 02m 25s

I am still adjusting to the clipless pedals and it took me a minute to get in them. I have only been using them for about two weeks.
What would you do differently?:

Practice more with clipless pedals.

The bike ride was my best event. The ride was great. It was a beautiful day (perfect weather helps) and the ride felt really good. My only trouble was with my gears. I had a bit of trouble getting it out of the hardest gear.
What would you do differently?:

Make sure my gears are working better.
Transition 2
  • 01m 42s

I did not have my shoes unlaced. They were double knotted and I had a hard time getting in them.
What would you do differently?:

Untie shoes ahead of time.
  • 32m 17s
  • 3.19 miles
  • 10m 07s  min/mile

My pace was faster than I have done at home in training and I was VERY pleased.
What would you do differently?:

I need to train more to improve my pace.

Performance: Average
Course: The swim was done in a pool. This was my first time doing a swim in a pool for a triathlon. The other tri I have done had the swim in the lake. It is definitely a different experience in the pool. I rode on someone's tail most of the time and passed a few people, it was just too congested. I think my swim time could have been faster without the congestion.
