took this transition slow scared my back spasm would come back ( it did't)

  • 2h 32m 58s

  • 11m 40s  min/mile

Started out at good pace for 1st 2 miles but the heat got me we had left home where temp was about 22 C when we ran it was 40 C with no wind and little shade. I had to stop at the aide stations and cool off with a hose. I did start to recover in the second loop but my right calf kept starting to cramp when I was running.
What would you do differently?:

If it is this hot I would run a minute or 2 below my pace for the 1 st few miles and see how I feel
Post race
Warm down:

striped down and went into lake

What limited your ability to perform faster:

The heat and my left calf

Event comments:

Aide stations were good but they needed one more at half way turn around point It seemed long and dry
