|I NEED COFFEE NOW!!!|
Ironman Augusta 70.3 is only 18 days away. If you plan on being there let me know I would love to meet up with you.
This weekend is 2K swim training in the springs so I can get use to wearing a wetsuit. The springs are the only place in FL that is cold enough to wear a wet suit. I will follow that up with a 13 mile trailrun. Sunday will be a 60 mile bike ride.
Last Sunday I did VQ cycling training. We did 3 hours of the Augusta bike course on trainer. Nothing like sitting on a trainer for 3 hours. Although surprisingly I had a fun time. I made it 50 miles in 3 hours which means I may be looking at a sub 3 hour bike ride for the race. :-)
The past several weeks I have been doing my long runs on the treadmill at LA Fitness. On the treadmill I can avoid the high 90 degree heat and have water right at my disposal. I can also increase the pace so I can push myself. One thing I do notice is how quickly people get on/off treadmills. They think 15 minutes on the treadmill qualifies as cardio.
Damian (my bike) is still having derailleur issues. I hope they do no act up during Augusta.
Will any of you be at Augusta?
