Tri Indy is in the books

As I already posted in 50+, I did the cycling leg of a two-man relay team in the olympic distance division of the Tri Indy this morning. Final, official results aren't up yet, but based on my own bike's computer, I'm happy with my time. 25.4 miles in 1:21:18, including running the bike in the transition area. I was hoping for anything under 1:30. Average speed worked out to 18.7. I passed a few folks, and was passed by more, but I expected that. All in all, I'm very pleased, considering that 2 weeks ago when I first scouted the course I did it at 16.5.

Wow! I figured you'd maybe do mid 17's. 18.7 is fantastic.

I almost overcooked myself. At the end of the first lap I was at 19.1. It became clear that wasn't sustainable for another 12.7 miles.

To avoid burning up bandwidth with double posts, here's a link to a thread in 50+ that has a few photos taken after the event.

Congrats! That's a very nice speed for not being allowed to draft. I think I might be able to manage 17 in a group over 25 miles but doing it solo would be impossible for me at this point.
