Kansas Ironman 70.3 Update 6

The Kansas Ironman is one week from today. Can't wait. Will start getting Transition things set out this week. Bought some really bright beach towels so that it would help me find my things. Starting to plan food and hydration intake requirements and plan how and where to fit them in and what times.

Have been noticing an abnormal number of snakes that didn't make it across the road the past few days. What's up with that. Big ones and small ones. It's like they all decided that it looked better over there and went for it. Bad timing. Heavy traffic weekend. Several other things also suffered the same fate. Sometimes hard to avoid on the bike.

Today's Training consisted of an 8 mile run, 28 mile ride, and a 2000 meter swim. All went well. Now the taper will begin. I will do the regular swim workout in the morning then a short spin in the afternoon/evening. Used the Camelbak again today and really liked it.

Most of the nutrition today came on the run/bike, and swim times. Had salmon and boiled potatoes for dinner. Tasted real good after all of the training today.

Forward we go! May your roads, trails, lakes, and pools be happy and safe and may they bring you peace of mind!
