The question is: will this make me faster?

  • RACE DAY: Pigman Triathlon - Long Course

Saturday - August 20

Drove to CR, checked into the hotel, registered for the race, and then checked out the race site. We drove the bike and run courses and then had some Panera for dinner.

Friday - August 19

Bike
  • 20m
  • 6.81 miles
  • 20.43 Mi/hr

Quick systems check and brief exercise on the trainer. Everything seems to be working well.

Thursday - August 18

Complete rest day. Taper.

Wednesday - August 17

Bike
  • 29m 49s
  • 10.13 miles
  • 20.38 Mi/hr

Moderate pace, short ride. I did give my bike a good wash and fixed my water bottle holder (the velcro was coming loose on the aero bars). I also experimented with the yellow spongy things inside the bottle to prevent splashing, which worked brilliantly. :)

Tuesday - August 16

Run
  • 30m
  • 3.68 miles
  • 08m 09s /Mi

Easy pace, with 6 x 1 min. pickups. Like Doug's workout, I felt like I wanted to do more, but that's probably the point of the taper.

Monday - August 15

Swim
  • 39m 30s
  • 2100.00 yards
  • 01m 53s /100 yards

Made it over to the pool after getting the kids to bed. Unfortunately, I brought the wrong pair of goggles, which were very old and leaky. The kind lifeguard was nice enough to allow me to borrow a pair that they had at the pool. They didn't fit my face very well, and left some slight bruises around my nose, but at least I could finish the workout.

This was a nice, easy pace, one that I can hopefully maintain on Sunday. I tried to focus on good form and body position in the water.
