Day 16 Splits
Happy Father's Day James.
You know its a tough day when your marathon time is the same time as your 112 mile bike time. That run time includes 1.5 hours of non-moving time. Still, this is James' first 15+ hour day since Day 11. That isn't necessarily bad if he's resting longer during the day and his total recovery time in 24 hours is still 7-8 hours.
I should be getting more regular weigh-ins from Sunny. She confirms that his weight pre-swim today was 163.2. The day before the project he was 168. 5 pounds lost in a given day from an IM is typical, but having that be his recovery weight is a bit concerning. I hope to get more regular weights so we can track this daily.
I regret the short bog today. I actually spent some time with James on the phone covering several issues, and much of the day researching his questions. I regret I can't share all the details, but we'll give you as much information as possible.
