Hey. Well the 70.3M World Championships are over and now the off-season has truly started. I will do a more detailed race report when I get home but quickly; I came 339 out of 1500 racers and did a 4hrs 30mins 27secs time, not quite under the 4hrs 30mins that I was trying to break but close....the race went pretty well, the run was very tough particularly through miles 2-5 when I had some stomach issues (hence the negative split over the two halves of the 13.1m run course). I am pleased with the overall result though and it gives me a great race on which to build for next season.
Other news is that I am seriously considering Ironman UK on Sept 7th 2008....just trying to work out the logistics at the moment.
Anyway I back off to the beach and a beer........
- Can we start planning on the race schedule for 2021? Progress is being made in the search for vaccines....lets hope so eh? Better start training just in case! . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #unpavedpa #cyclinglife #vandessel #gravelride #cycling #ciclismo #cyclingphotos
- Movember Effort
- End of year summary for 2020. It ended up being my biggest year in a long time (since I was cycling to work in the UK) and certainly helped by not having to commute into D.C for 9 months. Now the trick will be trying to replicate in coming years as (or if) the commute returns. I definitely respond well to higher volume and that will be important as I look to some future goals. . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #strava #triathlon #swimbikerun #cycling #ultramantri #ironmantri
