There is no turning back now. Both Chantel are I are heading to Cozumel for the Half Ironman on Sunday. I received an email saying that my bike is already there.I am freaking out a tad bit. I am in pretty good shape but perhaps not quite at half ironman shape. My body is tired. Everyday I receive training instructions from my new coach. ” do 3 hours on the bike trainer doing drills at 80 percent power then run an easy 3 miles. Swim an hour and a half mid day.” dude I have to work. Thank god this week is an easy week before the actual event. A lot of preparation goes into this. We are supposed to eat 700 calories before the race. During the bike you are supposed to ingest 200 calories per hour on the bike. Then another 200 on the run. These cyclists bring full meals and have pockets in their shirts. I am scared to take my hands off the handlebars. I won’t take them off for even a second. So I bought a camel bak and I am mixing a calorie drink in the water during the ride. So much work. Just get me through this so the mexican seminar/vacation can begin.
