How long was my spot? 10 second stop according to my Garmin.
Strong is very relative as I was not anticipating a "fast" time close to 5:30 on the bike like I did in Kona or 5:29 in IM Austria. A strong, fast 112 mile IMWI ride by a female would be between 5:40-5:45 and that was a goal of mine, that I felt was also achievable with my current fitness and the current weather conditions.
It was certainly NOT an easy ride!
I can’t believe that I was 2nd overall amateur for all of the bike and I didn’t even know it!
