Rhode Island 70.3

  • Improved Swim
  • Competitive Bike Split
  • Second Fastest Run Split of the Day
  • 4:02:18/6th Place Overall Against a Strong International Field

I'll take it.

Still lots of work to do, but the fitness is starting to come around now that I have the time to train and recover correctly!

I'll make the most of this down week before I start prepping for Timberman. I'm going to start introducing some IM specific training into the mix now since IMFL is only 3.5 months away. I'm looking forward to upping the ante on the training front!

Congratulations to everyone who raced yesterday!

Great race and uper run!

I am curious to know what kind of power average a pro like yourself has in a half ironman?
take care and good luck

Thanks Manny!

My average power was pretty low thanks to all of the down hills (lots of zeros in my file thanks to the coasting), but normalized wattage was 290.

Not bad, but I still have a lot of work to do if I want to land on the podium.

Best of luck with the rest of your season.
