Photo: Mud, Sweat & Gears
I just got pics from the Mud, Sweat & Gears event. Nuvision Photography provides photo services for these races, and they have a pretty cool philosophy regarding sports photography. Check out their site for more info. I’m pretty pleased with the result:
I’ve spent some times analyzing my performance numbers as well. Having results from 2009 gave me a good benchmark to work from. My time was 1:02 slower this time. Sure, we can blame it on the mud and loose sand, but I didn’t lose a minute to that. My first run was 38 second faster than 2009. My second run was 3 seconds faster. So the good news is I’m running faster. Yay! I hate running, so this was a marked improvement. My strength, the bike–is where I lost 1:43!!! If you read my last post, I noted my struggle early in the bike portion. I strongly considered abandoning. I have determined my electrolytes were out of whack due to some dehydration. I was mostly worried about nutrition but I should have been focusing more on my Gatorade consumption. I was really crawling at one point, and after I got some Gatorade in my system, I started moving again. Next time I won’t make that mistake.
