Bumpass, Virginia
United States
Set Up Events
57F / 14C
Total Time = 1h 38m 40s
Overall Rank = 153/435
Age Group = 30-34
Age Group Rank = 25/62
Pre-race routine:

Set up, stretching, keep warm. It was raining and breezy outside.
Event warmup:

Not much you could do. Got the wetsuit on and did a short swim and got acclimated to the cold water.
  • 28m 45s
  • 1640 yards
  • 01m 45s / 100 yards

Had left hamstring cramp as I was getting out of the water, probably lost 20 seconds. Had to stand there and stretch in the water.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, it was just cold.
Transition 1
  • 02m 7s

As I did the flying mount, my left calf seized on me. Almost crashed. Had to stretch at the mount line for over 1 minute.
What would you do differently?:

Nothing, attributed to the cold.
  • 1h 14m 34s
  • 24 miles
  • 19.31 mile/hr

I really didn't go race pace until the second loop. Was too concerned about the conditions to go hard. However, I got bored at about mile 12 and went for it. I'm sure I negative split by a couple of minutes.
What would you do differently?:

Try harder from the start.
Transition 2
  • 01m 36s

Probably my best transition yet. It if wasn't for the huge and muddy transition area, the time would have been stellar.
What would you do differently?:

  • 51m 39s
  • 6.21 miles
  • 08m 19s  min/mile

I'm sure I negative split every mile. Felt good, I was running hard. The muddy parts really slowed me down and nearly cause a knee injury. Didn't drink or eat anything for the run because of the conditions, body didn't really need it and I was going strong, didn't want to mess up my breathing.
What would you do differently?:

Post race
Warm down:

Ate pizza.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

Cold water, wet, rainy, and windy bike.

Great job.  Negative splitting on a bike and then descending your run splits is impressive stuff!
