Easy ride this morning with Steve and Mike. We mostly chatted about our races this past weekend and what's coming up next...iron distance races!

While I'm not a big fan of the brick, did one today to see how the legs would feel. Goal was to ride moderate to hard, then run low z2. Legs felt fine, but towards the end, HR started to creep up.

Long run planned for tomorrow.

  • 1h 52m 15s

Race report posted.

Plan to ride today.

Boy, chalking this up as a mental training day...Tired legs, strong wind, tons of traffic, and to top it all off, not very rested...courtesy of my son's lack of sleep last night.

Kind of surprised how tired my legs felt, but I don't really rev up the body that much in training.

Rest day.

A little sore today, but nothing too bad. Hamstrings are the most sore of any muscle group. Achilles have not been an issue, nor have they been tight or tender. W00T!

Feeling very optimistic about Augusta and B2B at this point. I will probably readjust time goals a little (slower), but nothing too drastic.

Very happy with today's race. Minus the wind on the bike course, and trouble shifting, the rest of the day (and weather) was perfect. I reminded myself that this is probably what B2B is going to be like and just put my head down.

Compared to last year's race, I took off nearly 10 mins, but what's odd is that I placed EXACTLY the same. Top guys that won that same AG last year improved by 4-5 mins each.

2013 - 02:26:32 (26OA and 6AG)
2012 - 02:35:11 (26OA and 6AG)

I have worked really hard on my swim this year, mostly working on technique. Took off 4:15 there. For the bike, I cycled hard, but fought the wind for the first 15+ miles. To be honest, this is the only area I'm disappointed with. The run was a real suffer fest. I didn't let myself slack much, almost throwing up 2x towards the end.

My dumbass didn't get the laps right on my Garmin. They're all f'd up:

  • 41m 01s
  • 5.73 miles
  • 07m 09s /Mi
  • 30m
  • 1371.60 meters
  • 02m 11s /100 meters
