IMUSA Tri-Rally, Day 1: Race Rehearsal

150 150 Rich Strauss

Over 40 campers met in the parking lot of High Peaks Cyclery to conduct a race rehearsal ride on the IMUSA course, armed with Rich’s instructions and the Four Keys guidance from the night before. Rich instructed everyone to ignore everyone, especially in the first 8 miles to the Keene downhill, and ride their ride, just as they would on race day. Rich then started last, drilled it towards the front of the field, making observations and taking mental notes for his talk that evening. It was very instructive to witness the different riding styles and discipline on the course.

Pre Long Course Swimming: Get Fixed before you Get Wet

150 150 Coach P

One of the big changes for the 2010 Ironman season is that there are no more official open water sponsored swims in the mornings before the race. Triathletes will be on their own to get in some swimming before the race. On one hand, the swim is really the least important part of your day. It’s really the price of admission to the rest of the race: it’s the shortest leg time-wise, it’s the shortest leg distance-wise. But all that said, if you measure the stress levels associated with the different legs of an Ironman Triathlon, the swim would probably rank the highest.
