I'm in the midst of organizing.....my friend Jess posted on facebook the other day that she was packing! I am not even close....I will be once I get my bike back today from B&L....it is being pimped out again. It took some creativity to figure out how I wanted to carry the following on my bike:
-spare tire for flats, 2 cans of Pit Stop, a razor blade, and two tire levers.......all this in addition to my calories and water =0.
I decided to take off my rear bottle cages and i'm carrying a cool thin bag that will carry *all* my tire stuff....so, I get rid of some weight from the rear bottle cages and i'm all set! I'll post a picture when it's all set with my very cool disc wheel (courtesy of James and Beth---see blog roll, they're super fast and super sweet! Thanks guys!).....so, the bike is being tuned and i'm.....well, organizing.
My parents and my older sister/brother in law/kids are coming on Tuesday to San Diego after Ironman, so i'm not only packing for Ironman, but i'm running errands to make sure I have stuff for Thanksgiving--which includes random stuff for Thanksgiving at the beach......and you know the usual $250.00 expedenture at Target. I think i'm all set for visitors......and I never realized how gross and dirty our stairway railing gets----i'm not sure i've ever dusted it. Oh the joy of having a rental property!
Back to Ironman.....laundry is being done...food is being eaten. Speaking of, i've decided this time--early in the week i'm piling up on veggies....and then i'll start to wean off the veggies and fiber by probably Thursday and i'll have a small salad or something on Friday and then NO veggies/fiber foods on Saturday.
Very exciting information =0.....but, all related to Ironman. So, how am I doing? Really great! My last post I may have indicated that I cutting way back on triathlon..which is true--but i'll still do triathlons, just not Ironman for a while---it's incredibly time consuming and i'm a little burned out on this particular distance...so I need a change. And, I may still blog--usually my blog is related to training, but if i'm not training so much what will I talk about? Hmmm, thankfully lack of words is not a problem for me----so, maybe i'll keep blogging!
I am really excited my sister, Trinette comes into town on Friday to Phoenix, WAHOO! SO excited to have her as my primary sherpa this weekend =0, ok, so she doesn't know of her primary sherpa role, much like Dawn (my other sister) wasn't aware of her role in Florida--until she showed up....but, I know Trinette will be up to the task, however, i'm sure that she will be thankful that Dave has already volunteered to run with me at 3:30 a.m. race morning, before breakfast!
Kinda boring today, not much else to report, just getting things organized and ready to roll!!!! More later!
