Swim
  • 33m 58s
  • 1795.00 yards
  • 01m 53s /100 yards

Really tough conditions in the swim today. The water was very, very choppy, the wind was brutal (pushing a current of water at us) and it was very dark.

Bike
  • 59m 20s
  • 19.83 miles
  • 20.04 Mi/hr

What can I say? I know it has something to do with the new bike, but I also know that it has a lot to do with all of the time and effort I have put into training on the bike this year.

Run
  • 52m 26s
  • 6.24 miles
  • 08m 24s /Mi

My best run in any event, ever!! Thrilled with this one. I truly put everything I had into this run and pushed myself, perhaps, further than I ever had before.

By far my best triathlon to date.  It has taken about 6 years of steady, consistent training but I finally put it all together on race day.  I am most pleased with the results of my run.  I pushed myself throughout this somewhat challenging course on the bike too.

In the past, I was passed by scores of people on the run... But Not Today

In the past, I would have allowed myself to rest (even walk) up some of the hills on the run... But Not Today

In the past, I would never have the opportunity to pass others... But Not Today (and even some with IM logo tattoos)

In the past, I would have been discouraged with the tough conditions in the swim and caved... But Not Today

In the past, I would have rested on the bike and coasted to conserve energy... But Not Today, today, I left it all out there on the bike.

In the past, I was able to convince myself that a mediocre race was a good one... But Not Today

I think I can finally say that I RACED a triathlon.

First ride on the new trainer. It is a lot harder than any trainer I've ever used. I think I have to play around with the set up or just abandon the idea of paying attention to speed and distance on the trainer and go back to just thinking about HR and RPMs. The way it is now, it's impossible to push at a high rpm to get my hr up. And if I go in a harder gear to get my speed up, my hr drops significantly.

Run #1
  • 24m 54s

Run
  • 1h 00m 17s

Ran the first mile really easy (10:16) and then pushed a little harder and spent about 3.5 mile running hills north of 25a.

Swim
  • 1h 01m 37s
  • 3250.00 yards

This was my third 100 mile ride of IM training and I think I finally nailed my nutrition and pace (at least my RPE) for the IM.

I started out doing about 20 miles of hills and back roads north of 25a. I pushed up the hills and rested on the recovery. Went out east to cr 51 and did that hill 4 times then did a huge loop back to my area and did another small loop to get to 100.

Got a flat at mile 98.5 in my front tire and one in the rear at 99.85... didn't fix the second, just rode standing the way home. The shoulder of 25a was a mess, lots of debris on the road.

I said I think I nailed my pace because I honestly felt great after this ride. I was able to do 2 hours of yard work and split and stacked about a half a cord of wood.

Pass the ice cream... ;-)

My plan for this week is to swim, bike, and run 2 x each over three days, taking off Monday and Friday as I mini taper for my ply on saturday
