Well, we are 2 days away from the big race. Everything is set, and even the weather is looking promising. The only thing left is to get through all 13.1 miles. Major development since last update? I bought a bike! A bicycle that is, so- may the triathlon training commence.
I did complete the planned 10 miles (10.5 to be exact...) mentioned in the previous update, in just around 2 hours. Again, that realistically puts me at 2:30 to complete the half. It was a pretty good run, with stops at the 5 mile mark, 7.5, and roughly the 9 mile marks. And as previously concluded, its not my conditioning that will hold me back, especially if the forecast is correct (as of now, lower 60s, low humidity at race time). It is my lower extremeties and how they will hold up. At the end of the 10 miles, my ankles and feet were in some serious pain, to think, theres another 3 to go!! Fun.
Tonight will be either a quick once or twice around the southern loop, and that will be all she wrote.
