training is done!
last weekend was tough with a metric ironman on Saturday as our last big session
Swim 2.4km 47 minutes
Bike 112km 3:13
Run 26km 2:20
the sun came out so it was pretty toasty on the day which i was pleased with, i didn't drink enough on the bike, mostly because i cant count, and forgot that one of my water bottles had energy gels in it, wont be a problem with aid stations on the day...
Ive not tried it before but the metric is a solid test, those little bis extra on the swim and bike come back to bite on the run in a way they dont with a 70.3, it was perhaps too hard at the end of the last three weeks training, as three of my group of 8 didnt complete it, one with an pre existing injury, one because of a niggle on the run and the third was seeing stars and cut the, but it was the first time in training that I've ever had to mentally dig that deep, body was fine apart from a slightly high heart rate on the run which i suspect was more to do with dehydration and fatigue than anything else....
just tapering to do now, lots of little niggles to stretch/massage/yoga out and try not to panic about, bike to service and pack up ready for it to go one the bike shuttle this Friday!
