Study Time Is Over

I spent the last few months studying this book that my coach gave me - mostly following his kick-my-own-butt workouts. This weekend we get to find out if I learned anything from it.

The California Ironman 70.3 race is this weekend. A chance to freeze in the crystal clear, 58 degree water of the Oceanside harbor swim. An opportunity to chase our friends around Camp Pendleton on bicycles. And then after all that - we get to run back and forth multiple times by the ocean. Fun times!

I really need to get a copy of that book for my kids. You are going to kick ass on that race. I'll cyber stalk you so you better go fast. Your 58 degree water ain't nothin' missy - I get to do a 20 miler in 25 degree weather - wanna trade? Didn't think so. Just swim faster, jeeze do strangers have to spell everything out for you? (I am just envious.)
