Last year, I went 4:58 at this race and I wanted to beat that time and go 4:45. (I get a number in my head and I just focus on it, I don't really care if it too realistic or not -- I keep striving for it because EVENTUALLY I'll get there...right? Hee-hee!)
Swim: 34:56. I took a minute off last year's time -- was holding 1:45/100m which is EXACTLY what I do in training so that is great!! :)
Bike: 2:40:39. Slower than last year, but there was a rainstorm...cold and blowing. I stayed within my bubble and had a great ride considering the conditions! :) I ended up eating 1130 calories on the bike!!! (Coach Sara was surprised that I could handle that many calories -- but Mike wasn't. lmao. What can I say? My engine burns bright!)
Every time I thought the cold would get to me, I kept thinking about how stinking hot it was in Mexico and felt *relief* that I was finally cool. lol! It worked! :)
Run: 1:48:21. Faster than last year so another AWESOME! :) Ate another 660 calories in the form of powergels, and could have (ie should have) eaten another 110.
I ate a big dinner afterwards too. :)
Ended up with a total time of 5:03:44 Great day and great fun!
THE DUCT TAPE CHRONICLES...
|My new aero drink holder crapped out, so it was duct tape to the rescue.|
|Chafing from your bike shoe? No problem! Use more duct tape!|
|It LOOKS like it is just a messy unmade bed....|
|But there are M&Ms hiding in there!! LOL!|
|Look Coach Sara -- BOTH feet are off the ground! YAY!!|
|Best buds 4 ever! Tessa P and me! :)|
