Water was rough. I'm not sure how far we acutally ended up swimming. The RD said it was reduced to a half mile???
What would you do differently?:

It was hard to keep a consistant stroke with the waves crashing on top of you. I did manage to draft someone for a little while.

First four miles I kept my HR between 145-150. Coach did not want me going all out on the run. The last two miles I picked up the pace and got the HR up to 167-170. I think I was sub 8'/mi for the last mile.

Warm down:

Felt great. It was a good opening race. Legs feel good. I recovered quickly, no problems.
