The Wall at Ironman St George - round 3

Day 106 Bike 3hr 58min - 113 km

A day late in posting my Saturday training - wow it was a hard workout yesterday. I had originally planned on a 4 hr ride (which I did) and a 2:15 run but I felt so bagged after the morning ride that even a nap was not enough to re-energize myself.

I still need to work on better read for my nutrition, 2 large water bottles and three bananas left me a bit short on energy so with about 30 minutes left I downed a bottle of fruit juice, not the best choice but it got me through.

This round of the initial 68 miles of Ironman St George got a bit more of me than the previous workout from 2 weeks ago. After my 10 minute warm-up I was 3:48 (excluding a 3 minute bio break), about 5 minutes slower than last time.

I am guessing that the 2 hr ride late on Friday probably also impacted the Saturday morning ride. Anyways, it was still a respectable ride and good to see what is working and not working so I can feedback the results into training modifications.

Overall I ended the week just over 14 hours and given that I had hardly any running this 10.5 hour bike week did push my legs. This coming week I want to get in a bit more running and swimming but still some good seat time on the bike. At least today I am enjoying a good rest day.

Here are the full computrainer results , note the right-left power split showing weaker right leg.
