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........
- You can almost see it....summer days of riding and tying on a race number. Plenty of options this year & it will probably be a year of trying to do a little of everything (#xterra, #MTB, #roadracing, #cyclocross #trailrunning ) #IFB
- First time having the #Vo2 & Lactate testing today at @parvillacycles Custom Sports Performance Lab. Such a good experience with @kelsc2790. What did I learn and what can you get from this testing? Apart from telling me that I have super powers 😉 it confirmed my training zones by HR & wattage as well as energy expenditure in those zones. Perfect information for continued training and importantly to outline endurance race strategies! . . . . #parvillacycles #marathonmtb #IFB #pactimo #alchemybicycles #mtbracing #parvillacustomfit
- You have to make the best of work trips and a $6 ticket to see the @memgrizz counts as a good deal in my book! . . . . . #memphis #grizzlies #IFB #nba2k19
