Florida 70.3 for a Fourth Go!
I felt great from the start of the swim. I felt like I was moving along pretty quickly, but when I got out of the water, I noticed I was slower than the year before. I thought this was strange, but at the time I just pushed it off as possibly a longer course or not swimming in straight lines. Once I looked at my Garmin later, I realized that I swam straight and the distance was right on so I must have just been going slow!
I had the overall third fastest bike of the day and felt pretty good the whole time! I usually feel kinda bored and shitty around mile 40 of this course, but it quickly went away this time and I was able to push forward.
I'm most happy about the run because this is where I have improved the most. I have a goal this year of running under 1:30 in a half IM and I was so close! I started to fall apart on the third lap, but I pulled it together thanks to the help of a couple supporters and finished with close to even splits considering the course is not flat.
Overall, I great day and I'm very happy about the results. Next up...IM Texas!!!
