With Ironman St George in less than five days I am ready for the biggest event in my life thus far. I am fighting the nerves and I don't see myself sleeping a lot the next few nights.
Training has not gone as well as planned...first with an injured calf and then with my usual knee problems. The calf is all better, but the knee is here to stay. With a little Ibuprofen, I can calm it down a little, but the pain is always there.
With the lack of training I have had to adjust my goals, but I am still hoping to do well. This is my first Ironman so I can't be too picky as long as I finish.
I have made it to St George twice to train and both have been productive and fun. Knowing the course has helped me plan my workouts in Salt Lake so I can mimic the terrain. I also made it to San Francisco again and got a chance to swim in the bay. It was freezing and gave me a good taste of how the water will feel in St George.
Well, here I go...wish me luck and I will see you on the other side!
