Ironman Triathlon training, pace bike
I did the coolest thing Saturday morning.
An Ironman triathlete headed to Ironman Austria July 15 asked me to help him pace for speed intervals on his road bicycle.
We got on a freshly paved stretch of flat road.
We started off, went up to 30 mph, I pointed my left mirror at him so I could see his speed. We went 2.5 miles, turned around. We did that like 7 times.
He said the draft was wide and long, he was tucked in aero bars pedaling like mad!
This dude was just like Lance Armstrong, he was going all out.
Meanwhile, I'm sitting in 2nd gear at 3k rpms....
It was fun, I had never done anything like that before!
