Only 7 days left till Ironman 70.3 FL


Only 7 days left till my next Ironman and my legs feel like jelly.  I need them to rest this week.

I weighed myself yesterday, 172 lbs.  Many moons ago when I left high school I was only 168 lbs.  I am only 4 lbs away from my high school (entering college) weight.  That was not a goal I was setting out to achieve.  I think it is because I am eating so much better now.  My pants were almost 3-4 inches too large.  I had to go and get new clothing.  Clothes shopping for a guy sucks!!

I am a little worried about the bike portion of the race.  I just have not been able to get my legs back on the bike.  I am tiring to quickly.

Is anyone going to be at Ironman FL 70.3 this weekend?


  1. That's awesome that you've been slimming down naturally. Not that you needed to, but it's a side effect of all the healthy eating and, of course, the craziness that is the 70.3. haha

    Hopefully with the final taper week you'll get that needed energy for the bike. It's my least favorite portion of the race myself, so I dread it no matter what.

    Best of luck!!

  2. Clothes shopping for a girl sucks too :) LOL. Have a great race this weekend!

  3. I'm sure you'll do great. All the best!

  4. I have a friend that I swim with here in my masters swim class that's going to that same Ironman as you!!!

    Good luck and enjoy, that's what it's all about :)

  5. Hmm...wish I had that problem.
    Have a great race!

  6. Have a great time! Soooooooo exciting :-D
