I will try and get a more detailed race report and photos up in the next few days, but for those of you that haven't heard how my race went, here we go, in brief.
Swim: 01:06:14 The swim felt long so I was pleased to come out with a PR Ironman Swim.
Bike: 05:17:53 (21.14MPH) The course was a beast with 5500ft of climbing and was a succession of large rollers. The time was longer than what I was aiming at but after seeing the course I was pleased with this for a PR Ironman Bike split.
Run: 03:27:35 (7:55/mile) I started out feeling really good and was cranking until about mile 11. My right hip started to hurt big time after that and slowed me down somewhat :-( Still a PR Ironman marathon and I know I have a much faster time in me.
Overall: 09:56:47 11th in Age Group/38th Amateur/64th Overall out of 2938! A new Ironman PR and under 10 hours!
Unfortunately the 6 slots for the Ironman World Championships were taken by the first six racers and did not roll at all........onto next year at Eagleman and Lake Placid for the Kona Quest!
- Luckily it appears that others haven't got the memo that the pool is open.....been liking the empty lanes during lunchtime swims these past few weeks! . . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #ironman #triathlon #triathlete #ultramantri #swimbikerun #gopro #ironmantri
- With group rides being off the table for the foreseeable future (my own personal choice) it's been fun to spend some more time on the #specializedshiv Time to think of an epic ride to do. . . . . #iridespecialized #specializedfans #IFB #parvillacycles #timetrial #swimbikerun #ironmantri #cyclinglife #triathlon
- 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
- Throwback to 2015 at #interbike when we met this legend in the line for beer! #JanUllrich looked like he could still rip up the mountain passes and was gracious to chat with us a while. Not every day you get to meet a #tourdefrance great! . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #cyclinglife @janullrichfanclub #cyclingphotos #instabike
