- Tri training help – THANKS (me me me content)
Thanks to all those who helped on my various running, swimming and tri threads.
Yesterday I completed my first Iron Man in 11:45, 6th out of 20.
Hardest thing I’ve done by a significant margin. If I’d not lost 10m getting lost on the run it would have been 5th and a better marathon time than my first 2 years ago!Posted 4 years ago
It was Ireman, a grass roots tri near Belfast, 100 odd in the half. I CBA with big events.
Swim was a little choppy and I got 1:38. Ride was 6 laps and I got 10 scalps but got scalped once myself. Weather mostly good with a couple of light showers, windy and course a little lumpy. I got around 6:10 I think.
Run was hardest – pretty flat and a lot on/by coast but just hard to keep going – I walked a bit, especially hills. Still got 3 scalps with a few folk on their knees. I paced it pretty conservatively, but given en how I feel today, doubt I could have gone much faster, though I think I copy have eaten better, guts not right and very dehydrated.
I’ve signed up for City to Summit next year, I’ll maybe do another if ice done enough training to justify seeing if my time drops, I doubt I’ll do any more though, just too hard and the training is time consuming.Posted 4 years ago
