Ironman Muskoka 70.3

Muskoka, Lake of Bays

Our Multi-Sport advocate, Thomas Hughes participated in this weekend's Ironman Muskoka 70.3 Race. 

In his own words...

What could be better than spending the hottest day of the year in Muskoka? Spending 5:42 of it at race pace!

Swim : 41:32 this is not a PR for me, but an otherwise acceptable swim. I was actually in the mid pack with this swim, so that is something.

Bike : 2:58.02 (31.9 km/h). I had a rough go on the bike. Enough said. I only passed 300 people on the bike. But a few people passed me, which is unacceptable. Unacceptable. 

Run : 1:51:58 Given the course elevation, I was happy with this run. I managed to reel in a dozen people in my category. That probably isn't indicative of my running prowess, but that I didn't otherwise crush those people on the bike.

In 2012 my time was 05:59:54. So, improvement yes, but there is still so much room to grow. I hope.
