Easy ride on the bike path to move the legs a bit. A bit windy heading out, but fun coming back home though. Fast with almost no effort :p

I will ride the bike at some point today, not too sure for how long still though. But right now I am watching the women race. Go Findlay Go!!

Happy Father's Day to every father around here ;)

Saturday - June 18

Swim
  • 31m 28s
  • 1500.00 meters
  • 02m 06s /100 meters

Not a bad swim, I didn't feel any pain in my shoulder which was awesome and besides a choppy river and a lot of traffic at the start the swim went ok

Bike
  • 1h 03m 32s
  • 40.00 kms
  • 37.78 KM/hr

Dammit I had a great bike ride, I gave it all which was not the best idea since I had to run after :p

Run
  • 45m 44s
  • 10.00 kms
  • 04m 34s /KM

Started the run feeling almost out of gas already, I tried to hold on a 4:30 pace but the legs were just getting slower and slower after each kilometer.

Race day, I feel confident in my training.

This is a C race for me, but I will still give it all out there

My swim will be faster, last year I had a really bad swim and this year should be wetsuit legal. My bike should be the same, the fact that the triathlon is two months earlier sure doesn't help. I don't have the same number of km on the bike as usual but still I should be able to get the same kind of time. The only thing will be the weather, as of now it might rains which won't help on the bike.  I know that my run is faster than ever, I PRed my half mary by almost 5 minutes so there is no reason why I shouldn't improve my 10km split also. 

My feeling is that I should be able to get 5 minutes faster than last year time of 2:31:52

Now lets wait and see if I am good with prediction

Finally I was good with my OA time prediction, I finished with a 2:23:49 time, 51/117 overall and 11/20 in my age group. But I was pretty sure I would have a faster swim, which I did. Mostly the same bike, which I didn't I was way faster. And a faster run, which I failed to do also since I was 20 sec or so slower than last year. I can't be unhappy since I was more than 8 minutes faster than last year!

Friday - June 17

Bike
  • 19m 56s
  • 8.95 kms
  • 26.94 KM/hr

Here is what was supposed to be the activation ride =/

What a sucky way to start the day. Steve and I met at a new lake close to both our places. How handy it is to have a place to swim open water close by we thought. 

We got there, changed into our wetsuit and got ready to swim, when someone came by. The guy told us that he was working there and that we were not allowed to swim in the lake :( 

We went back to the car, changed into our cycling gear to go for a short ride. 20 min or so was the plan, with some intensity to get ready for tomorrow's race. When we got to the turn around Steve crashed with his triathlon bike :( I could not get by him since I was too close, so I crashed too. I have almost nothing, some scratch on my right knee but no problem at all and my bike is ok too besides a scratch on the left side. 

Sadly for Steve though, his bike frame looks like it is cracked and good for the garbage :( He also has much more road rash than me. That sucks bad the day before the first race of the season. I feel bad for him ...

No need to tell you that we skipped the running part of the set.
