Event warmup:

Jogged 1/2 mile and swam 400 yards.
  • 05m 54s
  • 300 yards
  • 01m 58s / 100 yards

Too much caffiene affected my swim.
Transition 1
  • 01m 58s

Fumbled with race belt a bit too long. Need to put it on running out of T2 instead of standing in T1. Ran like a banshee with my bike to make up for the lost time.
What would you do differently?:

Put belt on running out of T2 instead of in T1.
  • 53m 23s
  • 16.5 miles
  • 18.55 mile/hr

Pedaled "in circles" what I thought would conserve energy. Haven't done it much in the past and focused hard on it during the race.
Transition 2
  • 01m 20s

I really can't remember T2. It is a blur. Don't know how I lollygagged for 1:20 in there though!
  • 27m 9s
  • 3 miles
  • 09m 03s  min/mile

Started cramping 1/2 mile into the run. Fought the cramps all run long with walking/running/walking/running....
What would you do differently?:

Won't ever pedal in circles again! Not at least with out training for it.
Post race
Warm down:

Tried not to puke. Successful.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Leg cramps in run.

Event comments:

Somehow I still pulled 7th out of 30 in my AG. I was looking at last year's results and if I had matched last years time, I'd have pulled 3rd! I was almost 5 minutes slower than last year, due to the leg cramps. My bike was 2 minutes slower too. I guess I pulled back too much on the bike this year to save some for the run.
