I caught the email saw only 2mins to registration opening at 3pm and signed up before I figured I wanted to go or not. Maybe Lockdown is affecting me more than I had thought!
one of the very few World Triathlon events that took place last year (September) after COVID spread but restricted to elite athletes only and they canned the age group races.
COVID is the least of of your worries. There’s the dreaded Blue-green algae
I mean how bad could it be by July?
Insert World War Z clip here.
This was @Jorgan’s pic from a day after the Ironman , it was better for the race, and was fine when I did the ITU.
I really enjoyed the ITU but the course got busy and a fair bit of drafting.
That’s my protein supplement for the day covered
How hot was it the day of @Jorgan’s ironman though?
pretty chilly or so I’ve been told, they were allowed neoprene gloves and boots in the swim
There was a heatwave, temperatures were hitting 35c on race day and the days before.
It was an Ironman on German soil, and I was entered. So it was always going to be very hot, or biblical rain
Honestly, I’ve had two at 35 & 40 degrees, and the other two it rained incessantly nearly all day! ( Frankfurt '15 & Hamburg '19 …and Roth '08 & Regensburg '11). The two wet ones were 2 out of my best 3 times.
