It's "game time" this weekend. Not sure what to call it, an Iron Man race, a 140.6 triathlon, whatever it will become it will be a long "ASS" race for sure. And that's how I'm going to treat it.
I started to train for this 10 weeks ago and see how it would it turn out? But I must tell you I wish I had more time. 10 weeks is not enough time to train for a 10+ hour triathlon.
But adjustments were made, most of my "ASS" pain that travelled down my leg has for the most part subsided. A big celebration on that..
I had to stop running for two weeks to make it go away, so my marathon run after cycling 112 miles will be quite interesting to say the least.
The course is pretty much flat and the weather is looking good. What else can I ask for.
Two loops swim,
Two loop Bike,
Four Loop run course,
Sound easy enough? Okay not that easy.. But I will get through it and do my best.

Life is good, because after this weekend I'm back on the trails for somemore Ultra fun.
Good luck to all my bud's racing IronMan Wisconsin on Sunday!!
