6 days to GO......
I am all over the board with emotions as expected leading up to my first Ironman this coming Sunday in Louisville, KY.Have I even started packing?….NO!!I promise to begin tonight.
I had quit the surprise by hubby when he had these cool shirts and cake made for a little gathering with the best support crew around yesterday.I am more than blessed to have this group travel to the race and be there to cheer me on.I am at a complete, total loss of words for what I am already feeling!
Tapering is working just as it should.My swim/run was amazing on Saturday.I actually forced myself to stay in bed until 8:30am.After some coffee and lazing around some more I went and tackled my swim first.Best lap times I have had in months!For the run I opted to venture on some new roads.Let’s just say that it was a welcomed change even though I did get lost. Ha!
Temps for race day at forecasted for 83 degrees.FREAKING SWEET!!!Of course I will be checking it a gazillion times before Sunday. ;)
