The Susan Bradley Cox Tri for Sight is the last race of the central Kentucky triathlon series. It’s a long sprint (800m swim, 19.1mi bike, 4mi run) with typically good weather and a really really long T1. I’m about a month out from Steelhead and I haven’t really put in the effort I should have in training to keep my form, but I knew this was the last race of the season and I just was a bit lazy due to that. I was leading the series by about 8 minutes at this point and with a relatively short race to finish it out, I was pretty sure as long as I had a good race and was able to finish, I should take the win.
In the weeks since Steelhead, I did 3 hours (transition week), then 9.5 hours, 9 hours, and 7.5 hours leading up to race week. Like I said, my volume was down. I wanted to perform well at this race as I have set PRs for all the races I’ve done so far this year and I wanted the trend to continue, but I’d just lost the drive since my last big race was done.
