Butterfield Competes in Inaugural Tulsa IRONMAN

The field was stacked, so many of the best triathletes in the world competed in the Inaugural Tulsa IRONMAN.

Germany's Patrick Lange, a two-time world champ, running a blistering 2:36 marathon to finish off a winning performance clocking 7:45:22.

Tyler Butterfield also competed, Butterfield would cover the 2.4 miles of Swim, the 112 miles of Bike Course, and a full marathon in a time of 8:24:56 finishing 21st.

Butterfield said, “The Race was a true test of where I’m at and a good hit out which is what I was after.

Data showed I was a bit low on volume, and a long hard session.

However, I’ve been feeling flat for weeks, and due to constant training, I also had built-up fatigue.

I didn’t know if the training was poor (other than my running) due to lack of hard & long sessions, or a bit off from slow buildup of fatigue.

With Sunday off & Thursday-Saturday basically last week, I rolled the dice to see.”

Butterfield finished off with a checklist:
- Swim Good
- Bike solid (minus the 3 flats) better form then-recent training, but still plenty of predicted work to do.
- Run nice and on track, still need volume to not crumble at the end and harden the legs.
