75F / 24C
Total Time = 1h 07m 49s
Overall Rank = 11/239
Age Group = 30-34 Male
Age Group Rank = 5/47
Pre-race routine:

Slept in half hour late. Drank a bottle of accelerade and some water.
Event warmup:

  • 07m 24s
  • 528 yards
  • 01m 24s / 100 yards

Good swim. Seems like I should have been sub 7 minutes. . but oh well.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing. I wish they started the waves by swim time and not semi-age group.
Transition 1
  • 01m 24s

I seem to be the slowest one in the world in transition. I must just move slow or something.
What would you do differently?:

Try to run faster from the water to the transition area
  • 33m 50s
  • 11.75 miles
  • 20.84 mile/hr

Had a good bike. Should have pushed just a little harder. All in all, I was happy.
What would you do differently?:

Maybe a bike warmup? something to get the legs going.
Transition 2
  • 01m 25s

I have to wear orthotics and since I don't put socks on before the bike, I have to here, which slows me down. I have to do it though. Plus I am just slow in transition.
  • 23m 46s
  • 3 miles
  • 07m 55s  min/mile

Well, if you can't tell this is my weak point. Actually I am very excited to have a sub 8 minute mile. I don't think I have ever done that before anywhere.
What would you do differently?:

Just train more on the run. .. I let this drop off a lot since Ironman.
Post race
Warm down:

Just got some water/gatorade and talked with friends.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Well, I hate to admit it, but the 10 extra pounds I put on since Ironman CDA had a lot to do with that. Next year. . . :)
