Team INFINIT Performance

The Dirty Double!

Having just raced Ironman Lake Placid 6 days before this race, I had no clue what the body would be able to handle! We called these feet the DIRTY DOUBLE

Having kept this race somewhat of a secret till race week, I was excited to try to push my body to some new limits!  I had a really good 6 days of recovery and I knew my coach would have me ready to go.

Swim - the swim was a down river swim so was hoping for a nice little PR!  IT was also a nonwetsuit swim as the water temp was 78 degrees!  THis would be a first for me!  I completed the swim in 29 minutes and it was a PR!  I did have to pause about 500 yards into the swim to regroup my mind as it was already struggle from exhusation.  I exited the swim and had a nice .35 mile run all uphill to transition.  

Bike - I headed out on the bike and knew this was a hilly course!  I found my self full of energy in the legs so I decided to push them till I could not longer push them.  It was a nice bike course with rolling hills, I tried to keep my spee up on the downhills to make up for a slower uphill climb.  Again it was hot so focused on nutrition and hydration for the ride.  Ended the ride in about 3 hours and was complete happy with that!  Body felt amaxing and legs felt strong as they could be!

Run - this was a two loop run course so decided to not push it to hard and get injured as I knew the finishline was in sight!  Had to do some walking and take on extra hydration as I could feel my body getting depleted!  Finished the run in around 2.5 hours and crossed the finishline and completed the Dirty double!

Overall this was a very successful day and I am now looking forward to a few weeks of rest and recovery!
