Cycling race (IP) 4:04  3.0 km (1:21 / km)
Our start was a bit better today but my second corner wasn't great, I think our first lap was 25src
Second lap was 18.1 which was right on pace.
18.3 for the third still on pace my line was looking good
Fourth slowed a bit, line was almost perfect
By the fifth lap CS was dying, I could feel her legs slowing. We maintained around 19sec for lap 6 but then it got really bad.
Phil stopped giving time splits and just yelled for CS to move her legs.
Managed to bring it back a bit for the last two laps....but really not much at all.
Finished one second faster than last year. Which was not the 20 we needed for the standard.
I believe if they had factored this race in the same fashion as last year we would have barley snuck into second place. But possibly not.
Phils thoughts were that the standard was too high a target for this year. CS said that she blew up after the first few laps which Phil said was clear and impossible to recover from on that short a distance.
This race was frustrating.
I felt we should have been at least 9 seconds faster this year (but really more) based on the kilo improvement.
I've done VERY well in this length of race (and event slightly longer) on our track geared similarly.
But overall a PB is something to be proud of (so I'm told) and our Saturday performance was great.
so I guess I have some things to think about and talk to Paul about when planning 2017.
