I did it! This Half Ironman was such an important benchmark for me on my journey to this monster challenge. I’m so pleased with how it went. But it was bloody hard!
Here’s my postmortem of the race:
Overall I’m really pleased with the result especially my sub 2hr half marathon at the end. It was always going to be a good chance to see where I’m at with my training and I’m still 12 weeks away from the Big One.
Lessons learned – I need to concentrate on the bike training and do some serious brick training. I think my transitions and swimming are on course so I know what I need to work on.
As of today – the 12 week intense training plan starts! It’s going to be very hard to do it all around my 11hr work shifts and Dad Duties but HERE WE GO!
