Night shift!  Came home from work and went straight to bed instead of running.  Woke up at noon and ran after 4.5 - 5 hours sleep.  Trying to lay down once more before work, bike tomorrow!

Bike
  • 1h 45m 54s

Long bike, if using aero bars , try to get settled in and maintain aero position throughout ride. If you can't maintain same power/speed as non-aero position, make mental notes of further adjustments to make post-ride.
* Ride went fine, power while in the saddle unless the hill was too steep, then out I came.
* Probably spent more time over RPE3 than I should have - oh well.
* WU and CD included, see lap data.

Week Goals This weeks focus is the bike with both intense sessions spent in the saddle. Run and swim sessions are at a minimum. Race Prep: How you will carry fuel during the race? How much? Can you depend on race provided calories and drink? How will you refill on the race course? Put these answers you find during these long rides into your training journal--not in today's entry but in the calendar days during race week where you'll find it.

Brought saddle up to a level position before riding.  I kept sliding off towards the nose.  During this ride I noticed that I didn't slide forward anymore but still experienced a little numbness in the private parts.  This went away quickly by standing on paddles more and/or bring out of the saddle.  I think the adjustment was better overall.
