Reply To: Peasantman 'Tune Up' Race & Training Weekend – May 6-7


Had a pretty pleasant weekend. Got in a solid 45 miles Saturday so the “race” was more a gauge of what was left.

Swim was a few minutes slower than last year (despite a lot of winter pool hours). That was disheartening – despite the chop (and yes Heidi, 1 buoy disappeared  mid race).

Bike was solid. I felt like I was pushing and working hard the whole ride instead of praying for it to end. I’m not fast but that felt good.

The peasantman run always reminds me that I love running. That last mile of shaded downhill through the woods rocks. So I ran a third lap.

Overall, I basically need to work on swim and bike speed going forward while continuing to build fitness and stamina.
