Oceanside Ironman 70.3: The swim started in waves which makes it so we do\idn't clobber each other. I just did my thing and finished this portion with a good time of 34 minutes. I did not adjust my wetsuit around my neck properly so I tore the back of my next up. Transition was slow. I took over 7 minutes to get through. Next time I will not use double layered socks.
The bike was a cake walk. The first 20 miles we went down the old coast hwy with a tail wind. I didn't want to burn-out on the bike but I couldn't resist the speed. When we headed through the Marine base we climbed hills and fought very strong winds. I seemed to pass a lot of people at this point. It was fun to see I was the stronger biker on the hills and against the wind. I guess thoughs special bikes they ride can't do everything!!! :) I finished the ride in 2:48.
The run was along the coast and was just full of energy and excitement. I was pushing a 7:45 pace until mile 8 I drank a coke. That just seemed to wipe me out and I dragged for a couple miles. I finished the last 2 miles strong.
Total time was 5:23. My goal was 5:30... best case would have been a 5:05.
