Ironman Louisville Week 20...

We have a bib number kids!  If you want to follow along, I will be #624 on race day.  Not sure why but knowing my number is always so exciting.  I also am happy that it is an even number as I am kind of OCD about odd numbers.  The thermostat, volume, etc. MUST always be on even numbers.  Ha ha.  No really...

... and for those of you who are following along, here is my training for last week:

Rest!  No clue what I even did that day.  Must have been some good resting :)

Bike (AM) 18 miles
Tennis - normally would not count this but it ended up being three sets of singles which went on for three hours so it merits being on the list this week!
Crossfit (PM)

Bike (AM) 15 miles
Run (AM) 5.25 miles

Run (AM) 5 miles
Swim (AM) 2850 meters

Swim (AM) 2100 meters
In my post swim hot tub which has become a Friday tradition, I ended up in a conversation with a man who managed to tell me his life history, how to can vegetables and how he came to own part of a cow so he could have raw milk (it is illegal in GA to buy raw milk...).  All of that information in just under 10 minutes.  I am not much for hot tub talk but I will say it was fascinating.  :)

Bike 103 miles - the HOT hundred!

Rest Day - I ended up driving from AL to MS and then back to GA all in one day.  The word "rest" may not be the best to describe this day.  I ended up swapping Sunday and Monday this week so I did my long run Monday when I got back from my road trip.

Coming up this week I have my final century ride before Louisville and then I start sliding into taper mode!

I think you are going to set the record for the MOST century rides prior to an Ironman....and maybe a totally new way to do this!! I can't wait to watch!
