After a quick transition I got to tackle the 180k through the desert. And yesss my legs were great. The power came by itself and I was having so much fun. I just loved riding through these lava fields. On the way out to Hawi I was only riding on the left side passing people. On the way back there was a little head wind, but nothing compared to the last time I raced here. Only the last 45min got a litte tough because I ran out of water and I got really thirsty and couldn't cool myself anymore. But getting off the bike my supporters told me that I was first in my age group and since my legs still felt pretty fresh so I thought after rehydrating myself the run could turn out well. 🙄🙄(NOT) With my bike split of 5.15h I was pretty happy and I think these 180k have never gone by that fast during an Ironman.
