So I registered for the Ottawa race weekend Half-Marathon with Team Diabetes.. They usually send out an email a few weeks before race weekend to confirm your distance. This year.. they did not.. I’ve emailed them to confirm that I’m running the half.. No response.. The bib numbers are up and guess what… I’m registered for the full… Thanks for nothing.. If I can’t switch, then I’m stuck with a 26.2 mile bib.. I have my half-iron in 4 weeks.. This is stupid! So the question is.. If It’s a full bib and I cannot change it, do I A) Do not race. B) Race to half-way and end up with a DNF on Sportsstats? C) Do the full with a job/walk combo?
Not my best but will take it! That swim time blows my mind! My calf started cramping again at the start of the run.. Lots of walking not to make it worse. I have a big race in a month!
Ottawa race weekend half marathon next weekend!
I love this season!
A quick easy sub 30 1km in the pool this morning.. Not looking forward to my tri Saturday.. 400+ in a pool.. 10 x 50m.. I’m sure it’s easier then an IM mass start.. But still the pool is equivalent to the treadmill of running..
Nice run till the end.. My right calf just tightened right up! I had to limp home.. Time to foam roll!!
Ps: got a call from the city.. I’m a finalist for Athlete of the year! Darn. That’s pretty awesome!
Just some reading material.. 40 days.
This Friday I pick up my race kit for my first tri of the year.. A sprint with a pool swim.. Urghh
Ironman 70.3 people.. How is the T-Zone? Is it like a local race where all your stuff is beside your bike? Or in bags in a changing area like a full iron?
6am swim. Feels like forever since I swam. Just a tad over 1000m in less then 30 minutes. I’m amazed at how much the body remembers, or how much I remember.. But swimming you can always tweak it to perform better.. I have a 1.2 mile swim in June and would like to hit under 45-50 minutes.
