The trials, tribulations and nonsensical babbling of a triathlete training for her first Ironman.

30 Days....

from now, I had better be done 1 loop of the Ironman bike course! Yup, 30 days till race day. I can't believe it's almost here. In some ways I feel like I'm ready and in others I don't. I think the big thing is putting all the pieces together. I haven't done any swim to bike workouts and I'd like to give that a whirl so I know what it's like to race in wet shorts (silly I know but over 180 km you can run into some serious issues if something is rubbing the wrong way!). I've done lots of bike to run workouts with the last few I've done being pretty bad because of the heat. I'll give it another go this weekend and hopefully I'll be ok. I don't really want to have to walk the marathon because I've overheated. But if I have to so be it--as long as I finish. I am excited and nervous at the same time. I get butterflies just thinking about the race.

On another note, the fundraising is going well--not as well as I had anticipated but not too badly. I've reached just over $3500 so far. Another $4000 and I'm at my goal. Yikes. I think I'm going to have to harass a lot more people to reach that! Oh well, I'll just keep plugging away and see where I end up......
