definetely not what i anticipated but i went through it to finish the best i could.
From start to finish it was all about suffering at a speed that would be a good recovery workout.
The swim was basically a lonely effort, i passed lindsey somewhere before the turn around and that was about it. Felt so hard and endless that swim, no big news to tell there.
As soon as i steped into the bike seemed like i was hit by a lighning bolt (i never had so probably not the best way to tell), had absolutely no power in the legs and the few i had felt so hard to put in the pedals, got passed by the slower swimmers, Jozsef went by me like 15km/h faster than i, really, then the girls, badman thurig etc. I had such a hard time going up hawi and no matter how many calories i got in it never changed the outcome of the ride. I Averaged 208W a good 50 55W below my best performances this year. the only good thing is that i kept a even pace power wise. finished with 5:10 on a good day for fast riding.
the run was all about finishing the day, nedlees to say that i felt terrible while running slowly and was actually surprised that a sub 3h was made.
Really hard day with no power in my body. Probably just an extension of my week where after arriving on sunday i only felt good on tuesday and then i really went downhill. i was really feeling good leading to this with tremendous workouts but i wasnt abble to put everything together in one day.
Vanessa had a good day phisically but had some major GI in the midle of the run that made her finish in 11:30, im actually happy for her overall performance and her hapiness to finish IM hawaii.
so, it was far from my ideal season finale but neverthless i fell like i had a tremendous season, some bad races yes but most where really good for me.
more after the break
