My first race this year went well.
Best swim time of 40+
Overall 20th bike time
I won't mention the running (I think position 88)
Looks like I'm nr 14 of the age group 40+ and overall 54.
I need to work on my drinking/eating skills during the bike race. I
loose too much sugar and water which results in bad running.
Unfortunately my digestion doesn't like fructose and some other chemical
sh*t found in power bars and gels. (I won't mention the results of
fructose on my digestion, but it ain't pretty)
I'm very happy with my bike race. I really made progress here. I can't
cope with speeds over 40km/h for a long time, but today I managed to
stick to a group @ 40-43km/h for about 15km. The last 12km I abandoned
this group and had to drive all by myself (@35km/h) which maybe even
required more effort from me.
Running was a nightmare did 3km @ 4:44min/km; than 2km @ 5:02min/km
(shame on me) but the last km I was @ my regular speeds of 4:15km/h. It
was hot, but I was trained for that so no excuses there.
Now I'll relax the rest of the day (Jacuzzi time) and tomorrow
recuperation day, in 3 weeks my next event...
Tired but satisfied! what a race it was!
