After I'm done sitting here, posting this, I'm going to start getting ready for my last "really long" ride before IMFL... at least 65 miles, 75 if I feel good.

I don't feel like going at all.

I feel like I already did my IM last week. I had anticipated ChesapeakeMan way more than I realized, and it was Iron-distance in the swim and bike, and then that long run the next day, and I feel like I should be done. Physically I'm fine. It's just some kind of mental let-down. The THING is over, it should be downtime now. But the MAIN EVENT is still to come.

And I still have to go out there and train for it.

It's a beautiful clear day, high to be in the mid-to-upper 70's, light breezes. Couldn't get much better for a ride. I am off work all day. And all day tomorrow, also, when I have a 20/11 brick, 20/13 if I feel good.

OK, out there and at 'em.

I bet you got "into" it at about twenty miles...sometimes you just need to start and amazingly have a great ride/swim/run...
And I have to be careful of what I wish for! We had two douwnpours last evening with HAIL, and water in our bedroom (again!) and there is supposed to be more on the way. I might have to re-seed as they will be all washed away if we get anymore moisture! Wierd weather!

Have fun!

Ellie, you always suprise yourself, so I'll bet it will be that way now. Get out there while the weather is still good. (I hear Michigan is supposed to get some snow by Thursday!)
