Today, I was competing in the Steelhead 70.3
Because of the weather, the swim was cancelled and it was a bike & run only.
I finished in a – as I think – decent time considering I‘ve had a flat, but it still doesn’t feel right. The swim is missing. I didn’t even stay for the world slot announcements as I also felt that this wasn’t right either without a swim.
Anyways, I just found out that there are a few slots for the Wisconsin 70.3 on September 12.
I wanted to take this coming week off to recover but will also have some business travel here and there (in the weeks to come) as well as planned beach vacation late August.
Any thoughts on how to ideally tackle that?

Thanks David! I’ll do that. Swimming will work when on vacation as I will be on the ocean 🙂
The funny thing is that the time would have been not too bad even though I’ve had a flat. But I feel it is just not right without a swim.
What I wanted to share: The intensity zones I practiced (upper zone 2 / some zone X) was spot on for the race.
Especially when running I spent 44% in zone X.
Cycling was mostly upper zone 2.
