This is What We Do

Friday - August 22

Thursday - August 21

178 lbs.  Hoping to maintain the one-seventies and slowly creep down to one-sixties.  180+ is not where it's at for me in the future.  Can't hit any of my goals at that weight.  I'd also like to be in the 170's for my 40th birthday early next month.

Swim
  • 1h 12m 01s
  • 4175.10 meters
  • 01m 43s /100 meters

Garmin 910XT recorded 2.59 miles. Looking at the GPS file, I zig-zagged a bit -- but not too badly. Happy with this swim time as the lake was choppy.

Sleeveless Aquaman Bionik2 suit.

Bike
  • 6h 02m 32s
  • 106.57 miles
  • 17.64 Mi/hr

Enjoyed the Mont Tremblant bike course very much. I was very glad on the Concepcion and Duplessis climbs to have a compact crank with a 12-27 cassette. Allowed me to spin and keep my HR under 140. Only twice on the steepest Duplessis pitch did my HR spike to 147.

Otherwise my AVG HR was 121 BPM. Lap 1 RPE 6/10. Lap 2 7/10.

Damn screen froze at 106 miles with a Resting HR mssg that would not clear, regardless of hitting enter and flipping through screens.

5978 feet of climbing

Run
  • 5h 21m 41s
  • 26.11 miles
  • 12m 19s /Mi

Ugh. Despite a great swim, low effort/HR and nailing nutrition on the bike, the same thing that happened at Lake Placid in 2011 and Louisville in 2012 happened again.... for some inexplicable reason my gut slowly started shutting down around 8 - 10 miles. Progressively gets worse between 11 - 12 and by mile 13 I'm hurting and find myself walking the next several miles.

At mile 17.02 I was at the side of the road throwing up. Very nauseous, woozy, vision was wobbly. Walked for an hour and then felt a little better and gutted out the last 5k.

4:30 AM: It has been overcast and raining here in Mont Tremblant since we've arrived.  Oddly, that hasn't dampened moods or the amount of fun my family is having.  This morning though, for the first time, I see the stars.  Clear skies.  It's a Beautiful Day...
