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!
