Nice Ironman France - 22nd June 2008

View user's profile
Arrived in Nice on Tuesday. I had had a complete wash at Bristol airport cos my bathroom was being done whilst I was away and there was no place to shower. Other than a rusty nail I had stood on during the DIY demolition (ouch), my feet were black. I rested a few nights with Alain & Martine (ski friends from Nice).

Alain & I enjoyed a leisurely cycle to Antibes (50km round trip) on Wednesday. Actually, for a guy 60+, he was pretty fast on his new Scott hybrid. On Thursday, I registered and collected my IM backpack but was a tad disappointed not to get a free Ironman towel with the goody bag as hinted at from last year. I did buy an IM towel but a bit poor quality for 25 euros (ought to have nbeen 30 but I claimed the lesser of the two price tickets) Alain & I then cycled to Villeneuve (40km round trip) for a coffee & ice cream.

I tested the running legs for the first time in over two weeks by running 5km on Thursday with Pat (another ski friend from Nice) and no sign of the calf strain. I had a couple of physio massages which helped a lot and I also stretched the legs in volleyball practice on the beach a few times. I did a couple of early morning swim sessions Friday & Saturday. I was joined by my team mates from Cheltenham Tri (staying in St Gothard's friendly 2-start hotel) on Friday before having at least one good night's sleep after stuffing ourselves at the pasta party on Friday. We had a meal together with my daughter on Saturday evening in the old town and I had TWO main courses: veal and pizza.

So, I was feeling positive the day before, but slightly nervous as my aim was to knock off at least an hour from last year's dismal 13.5 hours. The forecast a few weeks earlier was 25 degrees but it had been in the 30s on Saturday and so my target of 4:15 for the run was looking very doubtful. On the day, temperatures soared to nearly 35 degrees by mid-day. By that time, I would be well past half way round the bike if all went as planned.

The night before, I dozed rather than slept. I woke up at 3:30am (an hour earlier than planned) and decided I might as well have some breakfast (usual muesli plus banana). We headed down at 5am to the start and I was reasonably composed by 6:15 after loading my bike with drink and taking a final dump before jostling down to the start. I think it was then that I met LifeofRiley (David ?, London manikini bloke) or was that another day?

Swim

The swim was not very well marked and they ought to have had different coloured buoys for the 2nd loop, and probably twice as high buoys for the 1st loop - especially where the 1km turn was. I lined up with fast swimmers aiming at 55 minutes although I would be half an hour slower. The main reason was that the queue to the sea was shorter and I wouldn't be getting in their way at least. The sea was calm throughout the period fortunately but the ripples from the other swimmers would obscure the buoys we were all aiming towards. I got in the water and started slowly as usual. I also must have covered an extra 100m or more going wide on the first loop - especially since I went round the outer buoy intended for the return leg of the 2nd loop! My time for the first loop (2.4km) was 53:50 despite my encounter with a sizeable jellyfish! :{ The stinging on my mouth and face seemed to get worse in the sea and remained with me throughout the race (and still tingling 4 days later!) After the 1st loop, I got my bearings again for re-entry for the final 1.4km swim. My pace for both loops was the same - 2:14/100m - so, I was pleased that my overall time was 1:26:08 - just one minute slower than my target. At this stage, I was 1995th (out of 2200 starters) or 91st (out of 100) for my age group.





T1:

I took it easy through transition and was lathered in factor 50 suncream on my shoulders by the helpful race crew. I went for a much needed wee, not having managed to relax enough in the sea nor the shower afterwards (I had tried at least.) I nearly grabbed the wrong bike after coming out of the loo. I tried to jog down the 200m transition area with my bike but it seemed somewhat congested by other equally slow swimmers. I then remembered to switch onb my Garmin 305 watch and set it to multi-sport (skipping to T1) and then switching to BIKE as I mounted.





Bike:

No problems like last year getting on the bike - tyres were probably less than 100psi but allowing for a bit extra in the heat. I passed 745 cyclists throughout the bike course. Passing many in the first 70km, I was unaware that it had spurned me on to go faster than expected. I managed the short sharp hill at about 20km in my lowest gear - it seemed longer than last year! But I was pleased with 45 minutes around the 25km split time. Was I going too fast? I passed James Simmonds (clubmate) who later suffered a broken spoke and put him off his stride. It felt good along the flat and then the first descent I let rip. Some bits were a bit dark in the trees but I was prepared for the odd pot hole and speed bumps as I entered Pont du Loup. Then, it was the start of the long hill - 900m climb in 21km - the toughest section after 7km turn when the gradient is 10% for about 4km. I must have passed Scott & Baz at some point but was unaware (perhaps my music was too loud.) There was a bit of congestion at the top of the 2nd section at Gourdons waiting for energy drinks before the special needs bag at the top. Ordinarily, as I cycled through the aid stations, I grabbed two bottles of water - one I held in my teeth; the other I used to fill my aero bottle between my tri-bars. Then, as I drank some water from the bottle and poured the rest over me to cool down, I grabbed an energy drink (no coke please) plus a half banana. On the whole course, I also managed to digest 1.5 Torq energy bars which seemed easier than the sickly power bar. My average by this time had dropped to 25km/hr but I was still passing others. I passed Paul on the long hill while he had stopped and gauged that I was on target for 6:15 having reckoned I needed to reach the top by 2:50 which I did. I was surprised to pass Ernie (a girl from Scotland) on the way up but having ridden this course three times before (twice in practice), I was still going strong on the desolate final 8km of this long hill. I stopped to collect my special malt loaf (I ate half at least plus a peach for refreshment to help the digestion) and caged my 2nd prepared Infinit energy drink at the top of the hill and was soon joined by Paul along the plateau. After anothger slight incline made worse by a 10mph head wind, we were soon descending on my favourite section after the half-way 90km bend. Knowing some of the tricky bends, I made use of both sides of the road to pass Paul on the way down. I kept passing and being passed by a tall bloke in yellow (Zeb) throughout the race - at least until I stopped for a much needed long pee after 110km (I must lower the caffeine for the ride next time.) Both Paul & Ernie passed me around then. However, I did pass Andy Pittman (clubmate) who had stopped to stretch his hamstrings on that out and back 10km section. I passed Paul again at the side of the road whilst he was adjusting his bike for some reason heading up slightly into Coursegoiles. Then, a short descent before the mentally demanding 8km hairpin bended hill. My average speed was a healthy 26km/hr and I had the final fast descent to come. Overall, my average speed increased to 29km/hr as I kept chasing down Paul & Ernie each time they passed. I nearly came a cropper on one bend straying towards the grit coming out of one bend, but I had the benefit otherwise of knowing where most of the sharp bends were. Seemingly, my split speed was 45km/hr over the last 35km including 8km against the wind when we got back down into the valley. My time was 7 minutes faster than expected and just 25 seconds slower than the tough target I had set myself in a time of 6:15:25. I was pleased that I was faster than any of my club mates on the bike (and even the bike and swim combined). My splits were also better than my clubmates throughout the bike course - http://ironman.com/events/ironman/france/?show=tracker&year=2008&bib=2430





T2:

Another slowish transition followed including a full loo stop this time. Served by water from the crew in the tent, I decided to strip off my skimpy briefs and don my more respectable club briefs for the run. I also switched off my black MP3 sunglasses (tut tut) and donned a charged silver pair under my bandana (no wires to see). The sunglasses survived the sponging and the showers and so I had music to help overcome the monotonous sections.

Run:

A few miles into the run, Paul passed me (Ernie had already passed me during her fast transition and was going strong throughout the run.) After starting at 5:30 pace per km, but because my left calf felt the strain (from a half IM 3 weeks before), I had to stop and dig my thumbs in a few times, and I soon slowed to 6 minute pace. Pat (from Club Ski Alpes-Maritines), whom I had run 5km a few days earlier, had a break from his drum playing to encourage me after the first 5 miles. After the first lap, the overall time was 9 hours and the prospect of a PB sub 12:14 (re: IMUK 006) looked a possibility. However, after 17km (10.5 miles) with 15.5 miles to run, I reesigned to walking the aid stations to recover from the sweltering 35 degrees with sponges and cool showers. I manged to eat three gels on the run plus sip some energy drink plus a few biscuits (with salt). I picked up a bit after each aid station but was always glad to reach the next one a mile further. So, I lost a minute or more at each aid station as my average pace dropped to 6:30 per km. I was very surprised to pass Paul as he was walking the last return leg with 5 miles to go. However, the glory of finishing first was short lived as he soon passed me with just over a mile to go. My split times varied by 5/6 minutes for each 5.25 miles split section. My run time was 4:30:48 with an average pace of 10:20 per mile.



Overall, my time was 12:30:14 and I really ought to have gone sub-12.5 but I wanted to look fresh after the last aid station with only a half mile to finish. My GPS watch battery had died with just 5 miles to go and so I hit the home straight seeing the time was 10 seconds short of 12:30 but 14 seconds slower than the target I put on the forum topic aint bad - 15 minutes better on the bike and 15 minutes slower on the run. I had passed another 274 runners (probably more since some fast runners woul,d have passed me) and thus climbed into the top 1000 finishers. I was 28th out of 85 50+ male age groupers. I had enough strength to lift my arms ok at the finish but the smile was still lacking due to a numb face from the jellyfish! So, here is the smile now. Very Happy

I was greeted by Paul who had finished a few minutes earlier. I was so exhausted after exiting the race finish that I totally lost control of my bladder but hope I was discrete behind the railing. I limped towards the massage tent and could hardly move after sitting down in the queue with some food.

Later, James & I and my daughter (Keziah) waited for Scott and Bas to finish 30 minutes short of the 16 hour cut-off before heading back for a sorbet at Hagen Das expensive restaurant with our bikes.

PM:

A great race having knocked off nearly an hour from last year. Terrific scenery (even when it is my 4th time round); and great support from clubmates in Nice and at home as well as all of the race crew.

The next day, we cycled to St Laurent du Var (25km round trip) for a trip on a boat with Alain. Not much wind to sail but very relaxing swimming near shark-like fish. And it was good to have some real food again from a great carry-out - ham & cheese baguette with fries. I had an hour on the beach before cycling to meet my clubmates at the Acropolis. We stuffed ourselves at the awards party - and I gathered some fruit for the next day's breakfast & lunch (obviously still a true Scot). After returning the bike to the hotel, I joined my clubmates in Waynes bar - not for a drink, but to dance on the tables. Had an interesting chat with a Danish group just outside - a few were thinking of doing the Nice-Cannes marathon in November.

On Tuesday, I cycled to Cagnes-sur-Mer (35km round trip) before relaxing on the beach, a couple of swims, a market trip, and then packed the bike. After shopping, I soaked up more sun before a final volleyball practice with some French guys & gals. Early evening, had a celebration meal in Nice Nord with Alain & Martine with grandson, Albin. I arrived at the terminal with 10 minutes spare and had to juggle my luggage to avoid a penalty from EJ. I spoke to OldNick at the airport (2nd 50-54 age-grouper) - he would have won it with that time last year. After boarding, the plane was delayed because of electrical problems. After a system reboot, pitch blackness for a few minutes, 45 minutes later, the plane departed to Bristol. I managed to lock my keys in the car and had to wait until 2:30am for the RAC to rescue me, which they did so quickly in the end. I managed to drive back with heavy eyes but without further incident, arriving about 4am in Cheltenham.

What a great read and a great result. We were tuning in from here on the ironman website to see how you were doing. That tough section of the bike sent everyones averages down for a while there - it scared us!! Running in the heat can be no fun (yet to find out shortly I guess). Hats off to you on a tough course.

Sounds like you had a great day - I was following your progress from home on ironmanlive, and feeling really jealous I wasn't out there again. You beat my time from last year, so I'm going to have to go back now Smile

Excellent work!

Excellent race report and well done on a fantastic time. Sounds like it was another very hot one and that jellyfish sting doesn't sound good. A pretty uneventful race by your standards!!
Recover well.

Brilliant stuff Alan, sounds like you nailed that bike split! Cool

Taking an hour off your previous time takes some doing, you must be well chuffed!
