Light winds at back, smooth riding for 3/4 of the 56 miler, avg 20 mph
flat ride except for one uphill bridge crossing
with 10 miles remaining, the rains and heavy side winds began, which i had to change form from aero bars to outside barsfor control/stability
struggled with control during the rains and winds
95% of the ride was zone 4 with some zone 3
Transition 2

bike/run T2 went smooth but took a little longer because i was putting on socks for my run
no socks would save me at least a min
left knee was aching after the bike ride

  • 10m 23s  min/mile

energy levels low during the run
shoes and socks were wet from the rain,
felt tired during the run, knee ached a little
felt blister forming on toe from wet socks and shoes
What would you do differently?:
