Distance: 11 miles
So I make it onto the beach. Disoriented but the swim is done!
|Yay. I made it to land!
|Wow. Wet, in tiny unforgiving Tri clothes, and sporting
the whitest legs in America. LOOKING GOOD. ;) lol
Once passed, I was on my own a lot of the time on the ride. I had space for miles. So I guess that's a benefit of being a back of the packer. No jockeying for elbow room and the volunteers are very kind in support.
I have to look at my bike later. I think it felt harder yesterday but that could've been because of the swim first? Not sure. I felt like I was pushing harder than usual.
Also - I have to adjust the water cage. Since changing my bike seat height, I can't reach the bottle! I was getting so thirsty and had this bottle of water out of reach. I was too stubborn to pull over to swig so powered thru.
I counted down the miles and was so happy to make the turn into the final stretch:
Yay! I'm almost done!
|Oh yeah. I still have to run.
All in all the bike was pretty good. I wish I was faster but this was only my fourth time on an outside bike since I'm 10 years old so I can't complain.
Total time on bike: 49:34 (13.3 mph pace)
