Castlewood 8 Hr with Dave Crane. 6th of 34 team in division. 18th overall. Another dumb mistake at the beginning of the race cost several minutes. Nav error at the end cost at least 10. Otherwise a very smooth race. Quite happy with our performance.
It was nice to actually pass teams in the boat for once! Dave is a strong paddler.
Consumed 3 ensures. 1 pack of Gu Chomps. 3.5L water. 2.5L of Gu electrolyte drink.
No major cramping during the race (a little in the boat). Bonked on the final bike at the top of Justins. Had forgotten to eat.
Neck and shoulders were feeling really bad on the way home. Had the bright idea to get a deep tissue massage. I felt really good afterwards. Quads and thighs cramped up when I got up off the table....
Too tired to go to Holtmann's party. Fireworks woke me up around midnight, pre-race, and it took 2+ hours to go back to sleep. Got up at 4.
