So about the 10minutes. I was told I have at least 10minutes to save in the swim. Over an IM distance what the hell is 10minutes??? Out the other night for my Sunday movie fest with Bee I was telling her about the new swimming (trying to encourage her to join me for a session or two) and then I mentioned the 10minutes. The penny the dropped. The light bulb exploded. Fireworks went off. I saw the light. I finally understood.
I lost my Kona place this year by just under 10minutes. I lost a couple of overall winner Olympic Distance races this year by less than 10minutes. I lost overall amateur female in Singapore and Philippines 70.3 by yup, you guessed it...less than 10minutes.
It's not the bike. It's not the run. Any race I have lost, I lost it in that swim. 10Minutes in the great scheme of things is A LOT.
And hereof endth the lesson of 10minutes to myself :)
