Down To Hours
Last night we had our last group workout before the race. We did a short 3 mile run and then hit the water for an easy swim. I didn’t swim for very long. I just wanted to get in the water to keep the arms loose. Things felt pretty good, but my elbow was a little achy. I guess I can stop mentioning stuff that is just the norm theses days. It was a nice workout and things are feeling pretty good going into this weekend. A couple people have asked what I expect for times on Sunday. The truth is I’m not sure and to race well and to finish strong are my main goals. Plus you never know what to expect for the first race of the year. That said I’ve listed below some splits that would be really nice to hit. Plus this will help anyone who is using the Race Tracker to judge how I’m doing.
Swim – :35, solely depends on how the shoulder and elbow respond to race pace
Bike – 1:15, this would be about 19.5 mph which I’d be really happy with
Run - :50, would love to hold 8 min/miles but that might be pushing it :)
Total: 2:40 – 2:45ish would be sweet
So there are some loose numbers that you can go by if you are tracking my splits on Sunday. Like I said I’m really not sure how things are going to go, but I think a 2:45ish finish would be a great way to start the season.
Ok I’m off to finish this, hopefully fly by, afternoon of work. I’ll try and make one for post before I leave. If by chance I can’t I hope you all have a good weekend and send your non-rain vibes towards Philly. I’ll catch ya on the flip side…
