Ready to Roll



My first HIM is this coming Sunday at Racine, Wisconsin. The last 8 months have sort of all run together and this weekend I get to test it out. Coach Joe loaned me a set of carbon racing wheels and last night I took the bike over to a local bike mechanic and had the wheels installed. It was quite a process, to say the least, not something I would have ever attempted on my own.

Am I ready? I think so. At this point there is nothing training-wise left to be done. I would have liked to have dropped about 8 pounds, but that didn't happen. It's ok. I have my nutrition plan, or at least a vague idea. I have my asthma control plan in place. The forecast is crappy - temps in the high 80s. But I can't do anything about that, I just have to deal with it and move forward.


This morning my horoscope said "prepare to enjoy a time of a more normal schedule" . I think this suggests that I am going to enjoy NOT training. Amen to that...

You did great training and your fitness is there for sure. The race itself is actually going to feel easy with the volume you put in. Relax and try to enjoy yourself. If you get up tight, slow down, look around and take in the sites. You are going to be doing something most people can't.
