<p>2:40 bike for me. Ride included 1 loop of the Pumpkinman HIM course - I rode it with a friend who will be doing the Aquabike there this year and wanted a tour of the course.</p>

<p>OW swim, distance somewhere around 1500 (based on what everyone else says, although I don't think it's that long).  OB 16:16, total 31:something.  Swim felt very good.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Quick stop back at the van for transition.  Ah...  I love being parked next to a van full of excited little kids.  Nuthin' like practicing transition with little kids going through your stuff while parents stand by and do nothing.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Bike felt pretty good.  Took just a bit to get the legs to turn over.  Hills sucked, but they alwasy do.  Felt good enough that I decided to do a second loop.  Ended up having to rush to beat the thunder storm.  Caught the edge of it, but it felt pretty good!  32.something miles, 17.something average.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yesterday's long run was perfect.  Today's s/b brick was great.  Life does not get any better than this!</p>

Hey, Kyle.  How is the Pumpkinman HIM course compared to Timberman?  Any tips or advice in approaching it (and being able to run after)?</p>

It's not as hilly as the first and last 10-12 miles of Timberman. There is some climbing throughout, but the hills are generally pretty gradual, but some do go on for awhile. It's a fair course, challenging, but there's a lot of speed out there if you ride it right.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Take the trip out to the loops and the first loop relatively easy. Once you turn on to Pine Hill Road to start loop 2, I think you can get a bit more agressive - there's quite a stretch there that will allow you to go quite fast without toasting your legs for the run. Back things off a bit for the last bit before the run - maybe from the turn onto Rt. 4 into transition (~2 miles)</p>

<p>IM Racine 70.3.  4:40:38 which is just under a 5 min PR for the 70.3 distance.  57th OA, 10th M40-44.  I may get a race report out later, but maybe not as I'm pretty busy the next few days.  Got to chat with Yo Sake for a few min before the race.</p>

<p>Mike-  I thought you were way faster last year?  Awesome time regardless.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Me, 1:35 bike, w/ 3x11 hill grinders. Wanted to do in AM before we left Iowa but a small tornado decided to visit nearby so that squashed my plans. Did when we got home before dark.</p>

<p>3:10hr run, was forced to run 11 miles of it without hydration due to poor route planning, so it was a long slow run. At least I got time on my feet...  and I did one of my three plus hr runs I will do before IM Kentucky.</p>

<p>Thanks Ron.  I did Racine in 4:16:38 last year but there is no way that was 70.3.  The swim was very short (I swam 26:46 last year and 35:59 this year) and there was a lot of drafting on the bike.  So it doesn't count as a PR.</p>

<p>Thanks, Kyle!</p>

<p>I'm headed up there with some friends on July 31st to ride the course.  We're using her parents' house as home base for the ride.</p>

<p>46 minute run around the neighborhood.  My legs are tired, but seem to be bouncing back as even tired, I kept a good pace. Also VERY hot, but hey, it could be hot Sunday. </p>
