Ironman 70.3 isn’t like a test in school, there isn’t any cramming. You either did the work or you didn’t. I will have almost 700 miles on the bike by the time the event comes around.
Cycling was the big unknown for me. I didn’t know anything about cycling before committing to this event. Thankfully Spoke Life (check them out) did more than their duty in helping me get prepared.
Today I hit my longest bike (50.2 miles) into an 11 mile run. I felt great and I was able to really dial in my nutrition and practice exactly what I need to do during the actual event. Thanks to CR Juices for working up a special JG3 hydration drink (a twist on our Mission:24 formula) that worked awesome. Yes, it wasn’t 90 plus today but it was still humid and I was able to test as best as I could.
One more hard week of training but as I said above, either the work has been done or it hasn’t. 20 days away.
Thanks for reading and as always, I can’t doesn’t exist! BOOOOOOOM!
