Nightmare Ride, Ironman Philosophy

Went for a ride a few days ago.  I didn't think I'd get out because we'd had a few days of rain, and I just didn't want to ride in it.  But it cleared up and stayed mid 80's, even though it was pretty humid and had a headwind for what would have been the last half of my favorite ride.  Didn't really matter though, because there were other problems, and I had to change my route to compensate.


So I get out on the ride, and I pass the first crossover.  A mile later (5 miles in)…

Swim faster faster...

I just reviewed my swimming times for February and March.  I've been asking questions and adjusting my technique.  And two months later, something seems to have worked.

Cue Jaws Theme Music...

Less than three weeks away.  My run taper starts tomorrow.  The bike taper a week later.  I'm starting to get butterflies whenever I think about the race.


The best part is finding out how close knit a community triathletes are.  Strangers always willing to give advice, putting up with newbie questions.  Patient, informative and helpful.  Not once criticizing or blowing me off.  What a great group of people!
