Not sure what went wrong here. Felt stronger than that. I did have some issues staying on course. Need to work on more OWS.
Transition 1
  • 03m 30s

Crap. Haven't practiced this all year. Gave away 2:30 in both transitions to the mean.
  • 2h 40m 5s
  • 48.25 miles
  • 18.08 mile/hr

Tough course even with it shortened.
Transition 2
  • 02m 46s
  • 1h 50m 9s
  • 13.1 miles
  • 08m 25s  min/mile

Faded last 2 miles. Needed calories and none were to be found. Should have taken some in sooner on the run. First lap in 53 mins second half in 57 mins. Lost 4 mins on second half and most of it was in last 2.5 miles as pace fell off dramatically. Frist in AG for run.

My issue is that I am currently deployed and training outside is proving difficult, especially on the bike. I have found a safe 10km running loop but I am struggling with the bike training.

This is not an easy task, especially for the “9-to-5er” with family. But you can do it – all without sacrificing your marriage, job or family.
