Pre-race routine:

It was my first triathlon,

Wake up at 6:20 am walk my dog, breakfast at 7:00 am- honey and bread with some tea.

Watching the waves, and the check in procedures
Event warmup:

  • 35m 46s
  • 750 meters
  • 04m 46s / 100 meters

I lost control of my breathing because of the waves, bad orientation, I do not swim... just breaststroking allways looking for the bouys... what crap
What would you do differently?:

Just swim as I can, I would expect between 18 an 22 min.
Transition 1
  • 02m

always walking
What would you do differently?:

be faster
  • 46m 47s
  • 20 kms
  • 25.65 km/hr

My motivation was realy low, since was was last at T1 by a large margin, my biking was no drafting :), with an easy pace. I drink some gatorade
What would you do differently?:

I think with some more motivation and competition, I could have a time below 40:00 min.
Transition 2
  • 00m 30s

A fast transition, with my running shoes already on.
What would you do differently?:

I was OK, just keep the helmet until the bike is on rak
  • 23m 20s
  • 5 kms
  • 04m 40s  min/km

this is my main sport, I've done just enough not to be the last, with just a steady easy pace I left 3 behind...
What would you do differently?:

Again, with more competition / motivation could make a under 22:00 min
Post race
Warm down:

sit down eating some fruit

What limited your ability to perform faster:

I think my head, and the waves

Event comments:

I think because I was one of the last, I see no drink stations...
