I ran with Britnee for the first 3.1 miles and then did 2.1 after I dropped her off at the house. Just a nice recovery run for the both of us!  Bikes 25 miles after work with Cathy at a 17.1 average speed.  Then I swam 1 mile at the pool in 25:50.  I feel ready for Ironman this weekend!!

Did a 2 mile walk to the Jack-in-the-Box while I had the car in for an oil change.  Ran 4 miles on the TM before an hour of yoga class.  Cathy and I hit the Del Taco after yoga for taco nite.

After riding (15 miles) around the ironman venue and oceanside, I ran on the treadmill at the resort.  It was too windy to fight that again.

Jumped in the ocean to test out the temperature... not bad... it was probably 58-59 degrees. Then I did a light run and walked about 5 miles.  I'm ready for tomorrow.

Oceanside Ironman 70.3:  The swim started in waves which makes it so we do\idn't clobber each other.  I just did my thing and finished this portion with a good time of 34 minutes.  I did not adjust my wetsuit around my neck properly so I tore the back of my next up.  Transition was slow.  I took over 7 minutes to get through.  Next time I will not use double layered socks.

The bike was a cake walk.  The first 20 miles we went down the old coast hwy with a tail wind.  I didn't want to burn-out on the bike but I couldn't resist the speed.  When we headed through the Marine base we climbed hills and fought very strong winds.  I seemed to pass a lot of people at this point.  It was fun to see I was the stronger biker on the hills and against the wind.  I guess thoughs special bikes they ride can't do everything!!! :) I finished the ride in 2:48.

The run was along the coast and was just full of energy and excitement.  I was pushing a 7:45 pace until mile 8 I drank a coke.  That just seemed to wipe me out and I dragged for a couple miles.  I finished the last 2 miles strong.

Total time was 5:23.  My goal was 5:30... best case would have been a 5:05.
