80F / 27C
Total Time = 1h 20m 18s
Overall Rank = 135/205
Age Group = 4549
Age Group Rank = 5/9
Pre-race routine:

Setup transition, put ctuff in a plastic bag as it was raining.
Event warmup:

Road bike to transition area. Swam 1 lap (100m)
  • 06m 58s
  • 328 yards
  • 02m 07s / 100 yards

Felt really good on the swim. I passed two people on the 2nd lap. The first refused to get out of they way.
What would you do differently?:

I can't think of anything I would do differently. but hopefully go faster.
Transition 1
  • 01m 26s

T1 is getting faster this year. I am pleased with the time. Everything was soaking wet.
  • 40m 30s
  • 12 miles
  • 17.78 mile/hr

I kept changing gears hard to easy and never got my speed up really fast. I kept the cadence up around 80 and for a period mid 80's. Front break was loose and kept rubbing on the right side. As I got into the higher gears the chain would slip. I need a really good off-season tune up.
What would you do differently?:

Go Faster
Transition 2
  • 01m

Passed up my rack space. I counted the racks before hand but could not find my spot. I need to mark my spot somehow to find it more easily.
  • 30m 22s
  • 3 miles
  • 10m 07s  min/mile

Arghhh. I have not been doing any speed work and it shows. My run times are slowly slipping. I would say the hard rain and the mud on the trail were bad but that is only an excuse. I worked on longer runs this year but need to get back to speed.
Post race
Warm down:

The usual, walked around got fluids and ate a burito

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Speed work.

Event comments:

This was well organized for a first time race. I liked the 50m pookl swim as it was different from most races. It is a good course and I would do it again.
