1st of 3 simulation rides for IM Japan. I think I want to vomit. I did it perfectly, then! ;)

0-1:00 steady increasing warmup, rolling along, a few patches of a bit harder gear, all fairly high cadence (for me).
1:00-1:20 Steep climb
1:35-1:45 steady rise
2:00-2:45 long gradual continuous climb ending in a steep segment
3:10-3:20 uphill on a roller
3:40-3:50 uphill on a roller
4-4:30 hard, peaking climb
5-5:05 max climb
5:20-5:30, 5:45-5:55 near-max climb
5:55-6:00 steady on the flats

By 5hr I wanted a nap. By 5:30 I didn't want to eat or drink anything anymore. 6:25-6:56 seemed like 3hrs not 30min and by then I was pining to get the fuck off even if it meant I had to run a marathon.

I think I want some fat back on my sitz bones!

Gentle morning trot to wake up and, well, to keep up some running consistency.

Okay, so Chris Lieto was right ;). 6 hours of travel having you arrive at 7pm do not a 6-hour training ride make ... also, I blew out the faching trainer tyre and tube so hard it popped my left ear and couldn't hear out of it for a while.

Well, of course I just changed them out and kept going! Kept it in the top quarter of all gears, ground out a couple brutal 20-minute climbs finishing with the hardest gear, a la Tour de Piglets mountain stage, to which I was indeed cycling.

  • 15m

As in, purposeful walking. As in, towing a heavy suitcase and backpack I'm-late-for-the-plane kind of very useful training for Irontravel.

Travel day AND a long simulation ride at the destination (something Chris Lieto himself warned me never to do, so it went straight into the training plan). Just the way it worked out this week. Also because it's the last real day of Tour de Piglets.

For the two of you who haven't seen it yet, the new and improved Yanti thanks to a vegan stint initiated by food poisoning and looking at the Ironman Japan bike course profile:

And I've probably posted this already, but WTF, I love the guy double much, he deserves it, and surely at least two of you missed it the first time 'round as well ;). Kingsley Bugarin and I (with a pool in the background, apropos):

If you're ever in a bad spot in life or in a race, or just would enjoy a dollop of awe-inspiration, go nibble around his website: www.kingsleybugarin.com.au/.

Particularly the records page ... shit, I have to dress up in an Elvis suit to do that. He just takes his clothes off and goes.

Me, I actually get to nibble around him. :) Luckiest girl in the world, ongoing 37-year streak.

Kingsley having been Training Bike #2 this week thus far, had to go back to Training Bike #1 (Tin Canny the Cannondale) and grovel a bit by giving him a good hard 2-hour ride. Mostly big ring, really chugging it out.

Not so wee tranny run. But it is amazing the speed you can get in your legs (despite having done so much, er, strength training this week) with just a few less kilos on the body.

Dryland swim cords ... barf-o-rama.

But a la Tour de Piglets, not so bad.

Barefoot sand run up Jimbaran Bay and back while Kingsley swam across. HE DIDN'T SWIM FASTER THAN I CAN RUN TODAY HAHAHAHA!

It was a great run. I can really feel the weight loss. One of the lifeguards paced me for a while and we were going pretty fast.

I can't believe Kingsley was actually willing to do a swim workout with me (then again, for him it mostly constituted fiddling with his goggles and lollygagging at the wall waiting for me) ... time includes lots of fun taking silly as well as swimming videos in between sets.
