12 days of taper to Ironman St George
Decided to use the Dave Scott taper program for this last two weeks before the race. Saturday I did the Run-Bike-Run (5km-43.5km-5km) in 23.5 minutes, 78 minutes, 24 minutes at just a little bit over Ironman Heart Rate Race Pace. Sunday as my usual rest day and then did my longest ride between now and race date today (a 131 average bpm ride on a hilly course). Was very militant about staying in profile position during the hills and wind and it paid off with a solid 1h 45m ride for 60km.
