Pre-race routine:

spent last night with my parents. woke up and rode down to the site and set up the transition area
Event warmup:

ran for about 5 minutes w/ pickups and then rode for 5 minutes with pickups
  • 28m 9s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 43s / 100 yards

good swim. kept my pace/revolutions up. form was good. no issues with running into people. best open water/nonsuit swim yet
What would you do differently?:

Transition 1
  • 01m 12s

fine. nothing wrong, nothing special
  • 1h 20m 30s
  • 28 miles
  • 20.87 mile/hr

for me this was a good bike. no one passed me. everyone in my age group that finished ahead of me except one was already on the bike when I got there. caught one guy, but someone caught me on the run
What would you do differently?:

probably nothing. training is coming along and this will improve
Transition 2
  • 00m 29s

didn't get my feet out of the shoes in time and had to fiddle with one at the dismount line. other than that,this was fine.
  • 45m 26s
  • 6.2 miles
  • 07m 20s  min/mile

not quite as fast as I had hoped for. Got passed by one person in my age group at the 2 mile mark. other than that, kept trying to focus on form and keep moving. legs were tired and didn't have the kick I was wanting, but we can work on that.
What would you do differently?:

try to not let the form/speed lag in the middle
Post race
Warm down:

stretched and rolled the legs. got some food and packed up to get to Tarboro for boys' swim meet

What limited your ability to perform faster:

the usual. still got a lot of training to do to be competitive with this group of athletes. very strong group in Greenville to catch.

Event comments:

great race. weather was as cooperative as you can expect for August. If it had been sunny, it would have been really bad. Great food after the race.
