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!
- Impromptu Bowie Isolation Marathon
- Post run functional strength work...this season I'm taking a more holistic view of my #swimbikerun & ensuring that strength work doesn't get skipped. . . . #triathlon #ironman #salmingrunning #IFB #triathlete #2020goals #running
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
- First cross race of the season at #AACX today....always a tough race when you are the race director as well but had a solid race for 4th in the Elite Masters. . . . . . #IFB #cyclocross #parvillacycles #vandessel #tifosioptics #pactimo #industrynine
