I'm up, my tri bag is packed, my bike is ready, and I'm "almost" there mentally...it's RACE MORNING!
The Admiral's Cup Triathlon is a fast race (last year, I finished in just over 57 minutes) made up of:
400 Meter Swim
11 Mile Bike
3.1 Mile Run
I won my age group in this race last year...I had a lot of factors in my favor:
The race was later in the season (the end of July); I had just raced in New York (where my "bike split" was 12th fastest overall, I finished 218th out of just under 3,000 athletes!); I had ridden 850 miles through Colorado (I had been training "at altitude" for 15 days); and, I had a really, REALLY good day!
Of course, I'm looking to repeat the performance today...so, at 0800 hours, from the beach of the Pt. Mugu Naval Base, in Ventura County, California, I'll run, bike and swim with the best of them!
