I know!  I'm hoping there is a "in a nutshell" post.

This is the link to the mapmyride route http://www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/3334610 ) which gives the overall climbing as just under 3K. It claims that the last climb goes from about 1400 ft to about 2500.

Nice find  :)  But despite the obviously brilliant source, I don't believe the elevation is correctly stated.  Oceanside is clearly 2500 and P Man is much more difficult.  There are tons of strava entires from 4300 to 5000, probably closer to the truth, but any method is inaccurate.  As noted, P man is harder not just because it's hillier but where the hills are.

For example, people say the new IM Canada course has similar elevation gain but will be harder due to the location of the hills.

Whoa!  This thread is now officially off the rails from the OP!  LOL!

 

I don't think this thread was ever on rails. 

:) That almost made me spit my Corona on the screen.

 

+1.  I've gone back and forth between wanting it to disappear and wanting it to never stop.

I know!  I'm hoping there is a "in a nutshell" post.

12-13 MPH to 15.3 MPH on same terrain with wind in a period of 3 weeks.

 

1.  I got tired of sucking, and

2.  I started believing I was an athlete, and

3.  I'm getting better at pacing and RPE, and

4.  Getting better at pushing myself.

I have learned not to post threads like this right after a race because it doesn't reflect "regular" mood towards things.  Just like when I started triathlons I would feel like I never wanted to race again right after each one when the pain set in.

CDA should be no problem, with a 2 hour swim and T1 I only need 13.16 MPH.

Plan of attack for CDA is to be pedaling at 9a and pedal by heart rate, not push as hard as I can on uphills, recover on downhills (which is what I did during yesterday's ride), which is the plan coach came up with.  150 average heart rate or lower.  Seems that will get me by the cutoff with time to spare even with wind (has 12-15 MPH winds during yesterday's ride).  The run is no issue, that's my stronger part.  I get on that run course, I finish by the cutoff.
