2 Months!

You knew it was coming. I couldn't let the day pass without acknowledging the date. I have watched Ironman Live with palpable excitement and anticipation as IM CDA, Lake Placid, Louisville and Canada have all come to pass this Spring and Summer. I will be watching Wisconsin and of course Kona in the next 2 months as I wait for it to be my turn to experience the pandemonium and spectacle that is Ironman. When I get to Florida my mantra will be simple -- this is what you have trained for and you are ready.

I spent some time converting my Excel training spreadsheet so that I could more easily summarize my training and in doing so I realized that I surpassed my running volume for 2008 this week and I have doubled my bike miles and nearly doubled my swimming yardage for 2008 as well. What a year it is has been and it just keeps getting better!

Happy Labor Day, hope you are enjoying the extra day off from work!



Hey!! Slow down and spend some time with the kids. You are ready, trust me.... (a complete on line stranger....) :)
