11 Days

Well here we are 11 days to go. I would like to say that after almost 2 years of preparing (first attempt aborted after
cycle crash) that I am more than ready. No problems at all.

Truth is I am not. Physically at least. Training has been sporatic at best. Between work pressures, A very ill hospitalized Father in Law and other Domestic issues. I have missed a huge percentage of training.

The only reason I figure to have a chance are the recent huge weekends where I put in some good miles and time. That and my plan was original designed not to just finish but to CRUSH. As such I figure I can push through with the training I have done.

So really I have no goal time other than to finish. Also to have sufficient energy so I can get up from crawling about 500 meters from the finish so I can cross the finish with arm high in the air per the traditional Ironman finish line photo.

That is key!
