Where Should You be in Your Challenge Atlantic City Training? Race is the end of June.

At this time all of the long workouts should be complete and now your attention turns towards preparation for the event. Organizing the Swim to Run, Bike to Run and Special Needs bags. Your nutrition strategy and pacing strategy should be decided soon. Your mantra for the difficult moments during the race…..because there will be moments where you will need to have positive thoughts to get you through.

You have reached a point where you can not wait to get the race finished. This is a sign that you’re ready!

The 1st 12 miles of the Syracuse 70.3 Bike Course:

  • The 1st 3 miles are flat. Use them for nutrition(if you forgot to down a drink or gel out of T1) and for EZ spinning. Consider starting in small ring if you’re out to finish.
  • At 3 mile mark is the first climb at 6.5%. So be prepared and climb EZ…..there are more climbs to go.
  • At ~3.4 miles it changes to 3% and lasts .4 miles…..You can shift up a gear or 2 but remain EZ spinning…
  • At ~4.9 mile mark the long 5.6% climb begins for 3 miles. Be in an EZ gear and spin your way up.
  • At ~mile 8 there are small rollers til mile 11.8 then its a long 4 mile descent where your avg spd will increase a good 5% til mile 16.
