Ironman Arizona wrap-up

Tags: Ironman Training — 11:27 pm Comments (2)

Here’s the wrap-up:

  • This was my fourth Ironman. Finished.  I was surprised at the end, because it felt easy and I crossed the finish line feeling unsatisfied.  Scary…
  • I finished in 14:39. IMAZ was my practice race for Ironman Canada 25th Anniversary so took it easy but there was a lot of things that went wrong.
  • Some of those things include forgetting my wetsuit, bad nutrition (consumed like 800+ calories on the bike in the first hour and a half I only consume 200 calories an hour). I almost threw up.
  • The wind was 30mph so 56 miles of 30mph winds was not fun.
  • I would not do Ironman Arizona again. The 3 loops on the bike course was boring and depressing. Plus it was like doing a 7 hour spin class the course was way too flat. Suffice to say, my balls hurt. Also, the water was dirty but the run was nice and the volunteers were great.
  • Staying at my friend’s place in Scottsdale was great. High speed wireless and all.

That’s about it. I was 1432 place. I was like 1755 on the swim and passed like 300 people on the bike and got passed by only 10 people on the run. That was kinda cool.

  1. That’s awesome. A friend of mine was in that triathalon and was 1451. You probably passed him :)

  2. Passed him? I smoked his ass! Just kidding. These Ironman races are fun.
