90% brick in preparation of next week's Olympic distance, at about 80% effort or so. Tried to do it about the time I'll come out the water next week, by the time I got off the bike it was a lot later than I usually run, and MAN it was hot. Drank plenty on the bike but didn't think to bring water/fuelbelt on a mere 6-mile run. Did stop at a business halfway and drink from their faucet.

Heat's definitely going to be a limiter next weekend. Best I can hope for is three hours total, broken down as:

  • Swim: 40 minutes (2:46 per 100) just to survive my longest OW swim.
  • Bike: 1:20 (18.6 mph average), probably could do faster but not sure how to pace to leave something for the run.
  • Run: 60 minutes (9:41 pace). Could be difficult at 90 degrees 90% humidity.

Transitions will have to be in there somewhere...

Swam in the Team Javelin sausage suit. Got some strange looks, but it worked out OK, except my fat belly kept doing the Baby Huey thing.

Supposed to be a tempo run, 1-mile warmup at 10-minute pace, 4 @ 9-9:15-pace, then 1/2-mile cool down. Actually did the last fast mile at 8:45.

Got a break from the rain so I chanced getting the ride in. Rode to Acadiana Park, then through Arnaudville to Leonville then back home. Caught sporadic drizzle in the last ten miles but got the ride in, made my challenge goal for the month!
