St. Georges,
Bermuda Triathlon Assc
78F / 26C
Total Time = 2h 48m 23s
Overall Rank = 56/115
Age Group = M25-29
Age Group Rank = 3/4
Pre-race routine:

Nothing much, woke up at 4am, had some oatmeal and coffee, headed to T1 at 5am to set up. Had a cliff bar 45 mins prior to race start.
Event warmup:

No warmup due to logistics
  • 32m 12s
  • 1750 yards
  • 01m 50s / 100 yards

Could have swam a little harder. I think I held back too much. I just wasnt having the best day overall. I think I should have been 4mins faster, but I wasnt... no excuses.
What would you do differently?:

Swim harder.
Transition 1
  • 00m

Could NOT get wetsuit off my ankles. Could already tell my hammies wanted to cramp too.
What would you do differently?:

More bodyglide on the ankles
  • 1h 20m 41s
  • 25 miles
  • 18.59 mile/hr

Drank 24oz of water, and 24oz of cytomax, but wasnt enough to keep from cramping. I think I should have drank more prior to race start and in T1.
What would you do differently?:

Drank more before the bike, carry an extra bottle in Jersey pocket.
Transition 2
  • 00m

Very tired from the hills and cramping at this point. The run seemed daunting.
What would you do differently?:

  • 55m 31s
  • 7 miles
  • 07m 56s  min/mile

I was running so slowly up some hills I thought I might go backward, but to my surprise, I was passing many people. I have never passed someone runnign so slow before. The run was much more difficult than I expected.
What would you do differently?:

Train a little harder for the hills, but overall my run wasnt bad. I think had I done better on the bike, I would have been happy with this run.
