T minus 1. Had a dream last night that I woke up this morning with a fractured hip and couldn't run tomorrow. Maybe someday, but not today. Little bit of butterflies, but mostly ready to get going. I think lack of real nerves come from the fact that just because you have never done it before doesn't mean you can't do it. There was a day when I had never done a sprint tri, never an olympic distance, never a 1/2 Ironman, never a marathon, never a Goofy's Challenge. But I have done them all, despite some doubts that I could. So I do believe I can do it (and maybe beyond). Couple things I do know: it will be fun, it will be hard, it will hurt, but I will be mighty happy when I cross that finish line (probably right after I get done puking. ;) )

walk with my daughter

I have to admit I am not really all that nervous about saturday. In fact I am a little nervous that I'm not more nervous. Weather is looking perfect, except a little chilly for short sleeves at the start (mid 40s) I will mull over arm warmers. I will do one more little run tonight.

more rest

Humid & warm (mid 80's), but this felt really good.

I am ready for saturday to get here. Little run today. Disturbingly, my weight has shot up 5 pounds (154) in the last 5 days. I believe crappy eating with lots of salt this past weekend is culprit. I will try and eat better, but I am not starving myself this week.

Today is a rest day. I expect I will take a couple of those this week.

Full loop of mountain bike/horse trail on West side of Lapham peak with a little extra thrown in. Felt great. A perfect way to spend a Sunday Morning.

Great Luck to all my friends doing IMMOO today. Has become a bit of a bummer day for me, as it was something I had as a goal, but now that time has past. However, as I run these trails I look forward to new adventures!

back 1:03:39 (9:21 pace)
8 on glacier trail and about 5 on Ice age trail to Lapham peak.

Originally was thinking I was going to do all this on trail. However, remembered that Instep trail marathon/half marathon was going on and wanted to steer clear of that. So I took Glacier trail to Ice age and did cross over the race course a few times. At point this year I had thought about running the 1/2 as a warm up for next weekend. That probably would have been a smart idea, but this worked out fine. Was pretty humid and warm. I started out quite sluggish, but felt better as the run went and finished pretty strong and negative split by about 2 minutes. While not a huge confidence boost, it make me feel good to finish strong. Wore com[ression sleeves, as I'm thinking about racing with them next weekend. Nothing that happened today, makes me think that would be a bad idea. Also experimented with Nuun tablet in water as an alternative to Gatoraid. Also positive results from that.
