Pre-race routine:

rested up, took a nap after the AM OLY... about a half hour or so. ate ate ate and stretched.
Event warmup:

got to transition and realized I had 45 minutes or so after the first bikers went to start since it was a time trial start. Sat cookin in the sun for 47 minutes
  • 45m 26s
  • 1640 yards
  • 02m 46s / 100 yards

tough swim for me... cramped up bad at the end, literally 10 feet from the exit. Stood waist deep in the water and my left leg locked up. All I could do was stand there and hold it. Tried to massage it out but just stood tall to stretch it out. Felt like forever. Could have been 5 minutes could have been 10. All I remember is the others coming out of the water asking if I was ok. The volunteers and spectators could just stand and watch. I just remember saying to myself,"Walk... walk... you may fall but you have to walk."
What would you do differently?:

nothing could be done really. 2nd race of the day
Transition 1
  • 06m 30s

This segment the race was reversed. was BIKE SWIM RUN format. In T1 we had to get suit on after bike. I was pretty beat up after the AM race and had about 2.5 hours to recoup for race 3. Then I had to wait in the sun for 45 min to get off on the bike since it was a TT start.. 2 bikers at a time.
What would you do differently?:

now that I know that others would move up in line to get off sooner I maybe would do that in the future but I wasn't up front because my seed was in the back so I stayed there.
  • 1h 34m 18s
  • 24.85 miles
  • 15.81 mile/hr

hard course, hilly... good thing I brought the 32 with me.
Transition 2
  • 05m 15s

took a while to get the suit on after the bike portion. wegmans plastic bags to help getting suit on... body glide was completely melted and flew all over the place when I opened the stick
  • 1h 23m 56s
  • 6.55 miles
  • 12m 49s  min/mile

long day and it took it's toll here on the run.
