Training recap: For Saturday I got my open water swim in for about 33 mins. My out was faster than by back and I also felt more relaxed going than coming as I was trying to negative split and swimming faster, well, trying to anyways but according to time, I wasn't. Either way I got it done but not the workout with weights. The rest of the day was resting and then off to the movies to see 1408. Good movie if you like scary jumping out of your seat stuff.
Sunday, met up with a few TNT folks while they were on there 60 mile bike ride and rode 30 with them. Got caught in the rain which was nice at times but then it started coming down really hard when I was on my way back by myself and then it sucked! But then again, Ironman doesn't come with free easy rides so all was good. When I got back to the SUV it was lightening so I changed and started to head home, I was about 70 miles out and by the time I got into town it was barely raining so I stopped at the park and got my 60 min run in. Even though it was lightly raining it was a good run, also gave me time to refuel before running so that made it nice.
The rest of the day was resting, cooking, cleaning as the wife had to work some overtime at the hospital.
Then later that night watched the Holiday with my daughter, funny/happy/sad movie but good to watch. Then it was off to bed.
Ok, so one thing I have figured out with Ironman is that when you tell people that signed up for IM they look at you like, SO! They just don't get it, and at times made me feel a little down but then again, WTF do they know! It's not about them, it's about me and all the others committed to it! I am thankful for blogland and the peeps.
After signing up for the IM I realized that I do not have a name for the Fuji so let's play name the bike like Di did with her new car. Any takers?
