Easy bike and run. Felt great. Really relaxed and fresh.

I just hate the fact that I know the annoying dull pain in my shoulder when I run is going to be so freakin annoying during the IM.

I read some more BT IMLP RRs while I was on the bike and found myself getting teary eyed a couple of times. I can't believe it's finally here. Leaving for Lake Placid in a few hours.

Swim
  • 29m 13s
  • 1443.00 yards
  • 02m 01s /100 yards

OWS with the wetsuit with Bobby. All systems are a go. The shoulder hurt some, but nothing unbearable.

  • 48m 46s
  • 14.84 miles

Really easy, relaxed ride. I had to get in one more ride outside on this bike since it was repaired. There's no way I was going to find out there was something wrong on the bike course at LP. Resting the rest of the day today. Easy, relaxed short swim tomorrow and possibly a day off on Wednesday.

Run
  • 1h 15m 49s
  • 7.50 miles
  • 10m 07s /Mi

In the past, I have done these runs in the very early mornings... like, 4am. Today I decided to wait until it got much warmer out, and in the open areas, it was a scorcher, and humid. I also decided that I shouldn't run an easy 1-1.5 miles on flat roads to get to hills. Today, I drove to the hills and ran the hilliest roads I can find north of 25a and to the sound. Al in all, the combination of the weather and the terrain made this a very tough run.

Easy ows tomorrow, first swim in the wetsuit since the bike accident. I may do an easy ride in the mid-afternoon also, before I say goodbye to my bike Tuesday night.

Bike
  • 1h 45m 06s
  • 31.57 miles
  • 18.02 Mi/hr

Swim
  • 1h 02m 47s
  • 3000.00 yards
  • 02m 05s /100 yards

My first swim since the bike accident. I'm not gonna lie and say it wasn't difficult, but I made it through the swim by kicking more, going slowly and switching to breast stroke frequently. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this effort today. Now the big test will be how my shoulder responds to recovering from this swim. Another big test will be on Monday morning when I swim in the wetsuit for the first time since the accident. I'm gonna shoot for a mile swim that morning and it may be the last time I swim before the IM. Bobby is going to meet me there to swim with me and make sure I don't drown. He's a true friend.
