I don’t have a full race report for Ironman Mont Tremblant finished, but can report that I didn’t meet my A goal of breaking 13 hours. Even though I went 35 minutes faster than I did at IMKY last year, I was disappointed in how the race turned out, for many reasons.
That said, any day that you cover 140.6 miles under your own power is a good day. Don’t forget that.
Monday: An untimed 2500 meter swim, with 5x100s at a “fast” effort.
Tuesday: Quick mid-week brick, including 1 hour of easy work on the bike trainer and 30 minutes of easy running around the neighborhood.
Wednesday: 4.5 miles of easy jogging. I was supposed to warm up a mile, run 2 miles at “Ironman pace,” and then cool down a mile, but “Ironman pace” is so slow that it’s basically the same as warm up/cool down pace, so I went untimed here, too.
Thursday: Rest day, including most of the drive up to Mont Tremblant.
Friday: A few hours of driving, race check in, then the final pre-race bike and run. 40 minutes of biking, 20 minutes of running, and then calling it a day.
Saturday: A 20 minute swim in Lac Tremblant. And a lot of list-checking and packing.
Sunday: 2.4 miles of swimming in 1:04, 112 miles of biking in 7:12, and 26.2 miles of “running” (maybe 12 miles of running and 14.2 miles of power walking) in 5:08 for a total race time of 13:36:59.
