Congrats on the performance and thank you for a detailed race report!
Quick question: is peeing 2 times on the bike an actual proof that you are well hydrated? May be a different topic, but still...

In terms of what constitutes peeing ‘a lot’, I usually tell athletes it’s not a bad thing to pee once on the bike in a half-distance event, possibly twice in an Ironman. This tends to show that you’re drinking a reasonable amount but not massively overdoing it. Much more than that and I’d say it’s a sign of either taking in too much fluid, or insufficient sodium within that fluid to retain it in your body.

Sure - I can try and elaborate a bit. This definitely isn't my realm of expertise, so mostly conveying what I've done versus why I've done it.

Some examples of the types of exercises included: lunges, squats, dumbbell press, single leg Romanian deadlift, Bulgarian split squats, box jumps, etc.

Typically leading into big races the workouts will be more stability focused - single leg/single arm, band work, etc. However, when there isn't a big race just around the corner workouts will be a little more intense with some circuit work and machine work (leg extension, leg curl, squat machine, etc.).

I know quite a few athletes that work with ECFit, often while recovering from injuries. They seem to have good success with those programs. Perhaps it might be a matter of making sure you are doing the correct program at the correct time in relation to your races/goals.

Thanks!

Thanks! Glad people are enjoying the read and info.


I'll tackle that one - I think this is probably a bit of an athlete dependent thing.

I had two comparisons I was basing hydration assumptions on:
1 - Ironman Arizona: I only had to go once at the very end of the bike and then not at all during the run.
2 - Long training rides: I almost never have to go even over the course of a ~4 hour ride plus brick run.

Based on those comparisons having to go twice on the bike plus again in the first few miles of the run was a positive indicator of good hydration in my opinion.
