Thoughts on the race:

Didn’t have to swim really…99% of the time I was doing dolphin dive because the water was shallow. Nice water temp at 71F. Waiting for the race was the worst part. The wind was pretty strong during the bike ride but I was expecting that…so no surprise there. The cool temp made the running much easier than the practice on Thursday…I think that’s the reason I was able to run under 10 min per mile (for the first time ever!). Need to get myself a pump. My tire was almost flat in the morning….luckily I was able to borrow one from a guy nearby. Need to figure out the best place to put the bike number…I got a bunch of paper cuts on my legs. That was annoying.

Next Goals:

Run – under 9 minutes per mile (next month)
Bike – over 16 miles per hour (next month)
Swim – 100% freestyle (that’s for next year)
Overall – less than 1:40:00 total time, would like to be top half for overall place.
I need to take swimming lessons over the winter. I’d like to squeeze a couple of dives too if I can (I need to find away to pay for all that)
