Pre-race routine:

About like usual.
Event warmup:

I did swim a bit to get used to the fairly cold water
  • 15m 25s
  • 820 yards
  • 01m 53s / 100 yards

I bumped into one guy a whole lot at the start. I think he was not swimming too straight.
What would you do differently?:

Swim faster
Transition 1
  • 01m 38s

I had a pretty bad position in the TA, far from the bike exit. I really have trouble starting with my shoes on the pedals on this course (uphill start out of TA)
  • 36m 3s
  • 12.43 miles
  • 20.69 mile/hr

Pretty good bike ride, I got jammed by a pack of about 3-4 guys who were riding a quasi-paceline. It was quite discouragng to get away from them for a minute or so, only to have them work together to pull me back in.
What would you do differently?:

More work on the top end of my speed range.
Transition 2
  • 01m 10s
What would you do differently?:

I need to work on going without socks for these short races.
  • 24m 37s
  • 3.11 miles
  • 07m 55s  min/mile

I lost two minutes here to my time from last year.
What would you do differently?:

I need to do more short bricks and more speed work.

Event comments:

Virginia Amateur sports really seems to be doing better on their organization. As always, when Set-up Inc. is involved, things go smoothly.
