I hope everyone’s training is going well.
Can anyone share its race day typical warm-up routine?
I have a hard time getting my heart rate high enough/ long enough, so when I get in the water it goes up too high and although I don’t panic, it takes me a while to get into my rythm.
Thanks in advance!
Here it is:
Race specific brick – gear up
Do a brick with no more than a 1 hour ride. Try to do this in your full race set-up (clothing, wheels, nutrition, etc.) Warm up for 20 minutes, then ride for 30 minutes in Zone 3, and finish with 10 minutes in Zone 4.

Do we have to sign-up for any of the clinics (beside the WaveOne one) or the bike ride?

Hi! Would any of you be interested doing the Tour de Frederick century ride on Aug 10? It is a 100mi ride day for us training for IMMD so it fits perfectly in the training plan.
Any of you have done it before? Feedback is welcome.
I am thinking signing up for it.
I have signed up for the Lake Ana half aquabike for the open water practice as options are pretty limited before Eagleman. I will most likely test myself on the swim and take the bike as a long ride.
Thinking about adding another Tri in early/mid August for practice
And what about a spin class for one of the mid week 1h training ride? (Spin class lead by cyclist not a dancing spin class)
For an almost car free ride (few roads to cross, car free trail$, there is the W&OD trail (https://www.novaparks.com/parks/washington-and-old-dominion-railroad-regional-park). You can ride 45mi out to Purcellville VA, so a 90mi ride total. Alrhough I would recommend to start further than Shirlington as the first 10-20 miles could be crowded.
I’m back from Arizona! I did experienced the potatoes as nutrition on course (it was my first ultra) and it was fantastic! I will definitely include some in my bike nutrition. A friend of mine suggested to try to “waffle” some for less mess in Bento box. I’ll try and let you know how it goes.
My nutrition for my Half Ironman was:
Great to meet you all on Sunday! Great day!
I won’t be there next weekend (running in Arizona) but I hope we will have access to the presentations (especially looking forward to the nutrition one).
