Nothing pointed to a more clear loss of endurance from COVID than this race.   Everything was slow from swim, to bike, to run.   But like all sunsets, the sun will rise again tomorrow.

Overall the race was pretty smooth though.   No major hiccups with a consistent swim, a well paced bike, reasonable transitions and the same standard trudging run.  The bike was the most taxing and clearly out of shape while the run still managed a sub-7 time partly thanks to pushing but also thanks to super shoes as always.   Here’s to a covid-free training plan next year though where hopefully everything just gets better again.
