Overall, it was a challenging day. I had a good swim, a good bike (for 40 miles) – then had mechanical issues that cost me 45 minutes sitting on the side of the road, and temps above 90 degrees with no shade on the run – which resulted in a very slow half marathon.
The quick & dirty:
- Swim: 46:27
- T1: 7:39 (transition at this race is LONG due to what seems like a half mile run from the lake to transition area)
- Bike: 3:33:57, 15.70mph. Compounded by said mechanical issues; averaged 19.5mph until 40 miles; about 16mph after that due to wheels out of true (love brake rub)
- T2: 4:53
- Run: 3:01:30 (13:51/mi)
Happy with the results? Ehh – not really. I was super happy until mile 40 of the bike.
I’ll share more details, observations & thoughts in a much more detailed post in the next day or so.
