Lowering Transition Times
When I looked at my recent Hy-Vee Triathlon transition times and compared them to my times from 2009 and YIKES!
There can be a lot of time gained from faster transitions in your events. It's worth taking a look at those times to see if you can shave a few minutes off.
This article from Gail Bernhardt at www.active.com offers some good ideas on how to cut time from your transitions. Review your most recent times and where you think you can decrease time. Then read his article and see if it all makes sense.
I particularly like the idea of clipping your shoes to the bike in advance.
There is real potential to lower race times in this area.
