looks like he is halfway through the bike - around 3 hours for the first 56 miles on the bike

Good going Yank !!

That'll be a half decent bike time even allowing for half time slippage

Ironman Louisville done. 14:12.  PR at the distance by 23 minutes.  PR at this event by 1 hour 43 minutes.  I'll take that all day.  I, however, did overcook the bike a bit.  My fastest ever training ride on the course was 17.2 mph, with only a tiny brick run to follow.  Today, I did it in 17.67 mph, with a marathon of course to follow.  We had very cool weather to start so wonder if hydration was poor and then we turned around with a heat index at the start-ish time of the marathon at 33C with a bright sunshine and very little shade.  Took me a good half the marathon to get over my obvious dehydration issues.  Oh well, a PR is a PR but some lessons learned

Took myself to my local pool this morning – 1st time at the 6.30am early birds slot which is £2 less expensive than later in the day.  It’s also a little bit, and I mean a plenty bit, more serious by way of the atmosphere from those in attendance.  I was tempted to put in a few lengths of breast stroke, half hour or so into the session, just for the giggles. 

In any case, I  did my best and completed the full length distance in a little over 75 mins.  This time last year I struggled to do 50m so naturally I’m right dead happy.

Might have a pint this evening to celebrate
