24 days until Ironman
Today I feel old. But I guess I am old - at least according to my kids.
My body is more tired than I ever thought it could be. I feel like I've swam, biked and ran my way from here to New York. Actually, after checking my training blog, I have swam, biked and ran nearly 5,000 miles while training for Ironman - about the same distance from Honolulu to New York City.
I guess that means I'm feeling just the way I should be feeling. Cool!
Today is just a swim day for me as well as a bike repair day. My bike ride on Monday didn't go so well. I had three flat tires and ended up stuck on Queen K and had to call for a ride back to town. So today I'm swapping tires (the old one has a slice in it), retaping the bars, cleaning the grime off and getting everything ready for my 112 mile ride tomorrow. I'm also making sure I carry along plenty of tubes, a great big air pump and maybe a spare tire or two.
