Boulder 5430 Long Course

Triathlons come and go by so fast!! One minute I am training for Ironman CDA. The next minute I am on a 3 week rest break. And now I have finished another half-ironman race. Where does the time go?

My race report will be written soon...

I took an ice bath yesterday. Nicole had the pleasure of dumping 2 bags of ice into the bath tub and seeing me scream. I had the bath several hours after the race. I am not sure how much of a difference it made...but I feel pretty good today. Stiff...but that's is normal after a big race.

My total time for this year's Boulder Long Course was 5:32:01. This was not a PR. This was 10:36 slower than last year. I blame most of it on the swim, 8:30 slower this year. ahhh man. What happened? Too much time off and not enough swimming after Ironman? That's my best guess. I felt good during the swim, except for a small cramp. I think I just pooped out?

Hey, as long as you had a good time right? Not every race is a pr.

Congrats on another great HIM time!

I read another blog (the guy who finished 11th overall) and he said the swim was VERY long this year.

Great job none the less Eric.

I was pretty happy overall with my results. I wish my swim was faster, but maybe next year.
