Comments:

I was kind of worried about how well I could do on this race because I've changed my approach to training pretty significantly this summer but things went very well. I just kept reminding myself to take it easy and run comfortably and everything worked out.
What would you do differently?:

Now that I know my new approach to training can get me in the 3:30s I will probably start out with a faster pace group next time. This time I started with the 3:45 group not even sure if I would be able to hold that.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Maybe starting out with a faster pace group but otherwise I had a great run.

Event comments:

This is one of the best races I have done. If it wasn't too far from where I live I would probably come back year after year.

Overall: 317/3126
Performance: Good
Course: Mostly flat and fast with some climbing in the first and last few miles but not as bad as it looks on the website elevation profile. The course is made up of a couple loops with a couple out and backs. The Fly Zone out and back is cool, good crowd support on that section.
Keeping cool Good Drinking Just right

"I swam 2000 meters which was a lot for me, I was feeling good everywhere except the horrible stomach pain from getting air in my stomach creating a lot of gas."

With stroke improvements I find that when I try and swim long I have lost any speed gains that I had because my stroke count just creeps up and up. I also feel like I'm running out of air.

After I left the running store, I couldn't stop thinking about the sprint tri and how much of a challenge it would be for me. So instead of joining a gym, I started riding my bike and it felt great.

When I swim I struggle to get a full breath and consequently run down faster. I spend part of my training on the side of the pool gasping for air.
