i had a phenomenal swim for me. i figured out a week ago that the pool i have been swimming in is 27m, and not 25 yards, so my times have been a bit faster than i thought.
i came in closer to shore on the near side of each loop and rode the waves along it, MUCH faster.
What would you do differently?:
2h 33m 13s
bike felt smooth and controled the whole time. first lap a bit harder until i new where my lead was at on the out and back, 2nd loop easier, 3rd lap controlled but a bit harder again. the wind was getting bad near the middle of the 2nd loop and was killer on the 3rd. as i was coming back in after the out and back on my last loop i was going by people from the 2nd loop, FLYING by them, and only going aout 14mph. bad news right there.
6 hammer gels, two bottles of heed, half bottle of water.
cadence was a bit higher due to not riding as much lately and not feeling as strong.
What would you do differently?:
not get swine flu.
felt stiff, riding in the wind that long took its toll but i still got out fast.
dropped out at the turn around on the run.
miles 1 through 4 were good, ave 7:10-15 pace, feeling ok, at mile 4 2nd and 3rd places went through me, no one else even close. a mile later the wheels just fell off.
at first i thought it was nutrition or pacing related, but checking back that was not it, took in more than enough cal/fluid, and bike was taken at the border between Z2 and 3.
i had been stuck in bed for about a week with H1N1, and lost close to 7 pounds in the week leading up to the race, so best guess is that didnt help too much.
(i started the week before i got sick at 153 and 7% BF, the day before the race i was at 146 after dinner
all in all i am happy with how things went until the run, and am please with the day as a whole. i learned a lot about what i could and could not make my body do, and how far i could push on that day. i led the swim and bike, and had i kept anywhere near the pace would have crossed the line as the 3rd elite.
the longer stuff is slowly getting better:-
congrats to all that finished on a tough day out there.
on a side note, my swim and bike results came out with 5 min off the swim and added to the bike, overall times matched
(swim and bike on here are correct, race results are not
