Tomorrow it is

I am looking forward to tomorrow. I hope to be able to have good news to report. I fully know that God has a plan for tomorrow. I am excited to see what it is.

One Week from Tomorrow

I can't believe it's only a week away. Everything feels pretty good. I was back in the pool this week for the first time since the crash. Swam 3x, it felt almost normal. I'll swim a couple of times this week before we head up to Lake Placid on Thursday.

I am so thankful that in addition to my normal support team (Nancy), my brother and his daughter Haley will be coming. Spoke to Max yesterday, plan is in place. Taper has begun. Praying it will go well. Will try to get one more post in before we leave.

Almost all the way back

Two weeks from tomorrow will be Ironman Lake Placid.

I've had a good week of training. It started with being on the bike 3 consecutive days over the long weekend. Felt more comfortable everyday. The forearm hurts a bit if I am aero for too long. I am hoping this won't be an issue at IMLP. Still have a bit of an open wound, so I will be in the pool on Monday for the first time since the crash.

I feel like my fitness is there, the workouts have been tough with no lingering issues at all. I am so thankful and I feel so blessed to be able to compete at IMLP. The goal is to finish in under 17 hours. I'll be pleased with whatever my time is. The fact that I will be able to race is a win already for me.
