This year I plan on blowing these times out of the water!
Unfortunately my swim in Belle River this year was cursed once again the rest
of my race was just ok. Anyone who has had a miserable swim could tell you the
energy that you use struggling in the water just makes for a crappy result overall.
Plus I realized my flaw in BR was the lack of speed work I had been doing leading
up to the race because of the long moderate base training I have been doing for
IMFLA and not changing it up before Belle River. I changed that in the last 2 weeks
and did a lot of short hard efforts in preparation for leamington.
I also got out in the open water a lot more and I am feeling more comfortable than
It will take a much harder effort for me to place in my age group this time around
(got 2nd in my AG in Belle River)I am as ready as I can be. Going to take today off
from a busy week of training and make sure I don't get myself dehydrated!
If I am lucky 2011 will look like this
Swim 13:00 1:44/100m
Bike 32:55 36.5kph
Run 21:30 4:18/km
