Lastly, the final piece of advice I will drop on you all is to buy a good bike. This is a great thing to do. I recently got into biking 3 years ago (ironically when I did my first triathlon) and I know I have improved by leaps and bounds. In several sprint races last year I was able to hold above 23 mph as an average for the bike leg, when in years past I was lucky to be able to hold above 20. At Florida this year for 112 miles, I even blazed into T2 with a 20+mph average speed for the bike.
Lance was not lying when he said it is all about the bike. Of course you should save some legs for the run, but blast the bike too. The BEAST (the '06 Cervelo P2C) is a great ride and I highly recommend it. Get a good bike fitting and an aero helmet too. (you will look like a dork, but your splits WILL be faster, I guarantee it.)
Well that's it for now, training has been uber consistent with me as last week was a 9.5 total training hour week (not counting the rock gym) and next week should be 10+, I'm feeling good about where I am now. I've been heavy on the run training and am at about 30 miles a week now running lots of hills in preparation for Lake Placid. We'll see if I get in, but I'm still going to be training like I'm already there. Take care everyone, I'm out, see you on the roads. Cheers.
