Just a week after my first completed Sprint Tri I did my first Olympic Triathlon. During this week, I also did my first Tuesday Evening IOS Ride. This would become a regular thing for me while training for IMCHOO. Below is a snapshot of my week of training leading up to Monticelloman.
Lessons learned: It was after this race that I really got to thinking about my salt intake (or lack thereof) and decided then and there that I was going to meet with a nutritionist. I also learned that I didn't want to have to drive that far again on race morning or the day before. I don't have cruise control, so it really did a number on my legs, which I'm sure didn't help on race day.
From a results standpoint, I'm happy with how I did overall, and my swim and bike were really good. But that run, I finished 4th in my AG by 3 min. You can see below all the other stats. At least I have a starting point, and something to try to improve on at the Nickel City Tri in July!
