For a Ironman race simulation we were to "race" Vineman tired. There was no taper, in fact the opposite today we rode the 50 miles of tomorrow's bike course to be properly worn down for the event. During the ride I worked hard at keeping my heart low while keeping my pace up, as this course is not too hilly it wasn't that hard to do. It was also a fairly hot day so staying hydrated was key. After the ride we went by pack pick-up for the race and set-up the Bike to Run transition area.
