Tons of ripping current. I got blown 100y from first buoy and then had to swim back to that first buoy AGAINST a ripping current. This swim was 20min SLOWER today than the exact same swim in May. Still, I swam strong and stayed focused but this swim took LOTS out of me that cost me LOTS of time on the run
What would you do differently?:

Check out the current at this race site before the gun goes off

I walked about 6 times during this 2lap course because I got injured running through the sand here in May. Today I walked through the soft sand which cost me time on the run BUT I did not get hurt today
What would you do differently?:

My emphysema made breathing hard on the run again today.
Train differently so that I can run faster.

Knowing where the fluids are, how they will fit on your bike, how much to reach for, and when to reach for it should be understood prior to ever setting foot on the course.

Known for its brutal cadences, nasty sprints and 12-minute hills, the spin class seems to be the perfect substitute for a raunchy ride outside. But is it?

“Less is more,” is a common buzz phrase in endurance sports today. It refers to the trend of training less but focusing on intensity and quality rather than on quantity.

You ride hard enough that you are working but not so hard that you can’t do the same thing the next day. 700 km or 400 miles a week.
