I am still satisfied with the result, especially with my run legs where I got my new PRs for each distance. For the bike leg, I was disappointed with my timing, but I forgot how hard it is to bike after the 1st run leg. Compared to last year performance I improved of more than 9 minutes, so I should consider my self happy.</span><br><span style="font-family:'Trebuchet MS';">What’s next for me? An Oly for the last weekend of February and the same Du version 2.0. Will keep you posted.</span><br><span style="font-family:'Trebuchet MS';">Happy and safe training to everyone!</span><br>

<span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">Interesting distances for the runs. I haven’t done a run-bike-run in several years, in the U.S. are they differentiating the distances on the two runs or are they still both the same distance? When I was living in Spain in the early/mid 90s I did a few run-bike-run du’s (still called “Biathlon” at that time) and they were splitting them up. But in a sprint race where the two runs combined equaled 10k, the first was usually first 6k or 7k and the second run rounded out the total run distance to 10k.</span></span><br><br><span style="font-family:'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size:medium;">Dan</span></span>
