Ok, here's the deal...
There is a half iron aquabike this weekend. No running. Just 1.2 miles of glorious open water swimming topped off with a 56 mile tour of lovely Mentor Ohio. The race starts and ends at my favorite beach and I'll get to see a couple dozen of my favorite people racing. Plus, I think the race director is a great guy and if I'm going to give my money to any race in NE Ohio it would definitely be the Greater Cleveland Triathlon
But of course... I've biked 1 time in the past 3 weeks and zero swims.
So should I go get a whopping dose of humble pie on Sunday?
I was thinking of a race plan like this:
Swim balls out and pedal as fast as I can until my legs build up so much lactic acid that I can taste it. Then spin into the finish with my tail between my legs.
No heart rate monitor, no watch, no bike computer. Just me, my Nineteen wetsuit, and Mike Honcho
Or I could just sleep in and go on my favorite weekly ride. This is all if I can actually get off work, of course. So what do you think? At the very least it will make for one hell of a funny story
