Subject: RE: Rev3 Anderson - Half Rev : Official Thread
Hey guys. So I went to the Endurance Concepts training camp for the Anderson race this past weekend, and let me say that this course is nothing to laugh at. Granted the heat made things pretty difficult
(try running the OLY course when it is 109 out, ouch
) but the course itself is not designed for the faint of heart.
Swim - point to point circle around the T1 park. Nothing difficult, relatively shallow water and easy to site. Low boat traffic in the area.
Bike - Hilly. It really reminded me of the IMKY bike course as it was very difficult to find a good rhythm. As soon as you settled into a pace/gearing, you were climbing again.
Run - Around the Civic Center area. First 3 miles is weird, around the Civic Center on roads/parking lots/trail running/walking paths. It clears out and is a bit more easy to follow from 3 onward, but the first bit is strange.
All in all, do not expect a walk in the park. If you go out too fast you will pay for it later on. If you race it, race smart, as i said this is nothing to take lightly.
