Forgot to write this report, so the details are few and hazy.....
Drove to Ventura, stopped at the Mini Mart to drop off the kids, yada yada yada......
01m 37s / 100 yards
This was a nice swim, some surf to start, but there were some fast people in my wave. Not mush to report about the course, except that coming in, at an angle to shore, was disconcerting, I kept wanting to swim straight in
Time includes the monstrous run in the sand to get to T1
helluva long run in the sand to get here
1h 11m 55s
I was very pleased with this bike. I was passing people -- PASSING people! That's new to me. I mean, a lot. I was basically using the bike training I did to leave it all on the bike course.
At one point I was jockeying back and forth with a woman, I knew she was on her first loop of the Oly course, I on the second. When we came to the go straight and finish or go right and contnue point, she went straight. She slowed down. She looked at me. She said "did you do one loop or two?" "Two," I said, as she turned around to finish. Whoops. Pays to look at the course map.
What would you do differently?:
nothing, totally pleased, and it made my race.
09m 33s min/mile
ouch. I mean, OUCH. I left a lot on the bike. I had been debating whetehr to do this, since I han't been running much. My buddy Mike said "do it and let it remind you how much work you need to do for IMAZ."
So I did. Let's just say i have a lot of work to do.
Although I did negative split the run, which was another small victory.
This is a nice, low key, flat Oly. Not sure I'll come back next year, but I will be back
