I am ready.
I know I am physically ready. My workouts have confirmed that.
I have done a week of taper and have:
*eaten super healthy/forcing myself it feels to cut back the veggies/add in carbs (which is odd... I never have to urge myself to have some carbs!)
*slept and rested: with forrest being sick, I really was able to take that day and take a nap (although I didn't sleep nearly any the night before because his fever had been up to the high 105's)...
*done exactly my workout plan and hit all my paces and felt great.
*stretched/rolled/did it all/massage/ last PT, etc.
I am READY. Nothing else to say.
The work is done, the party needs to begin.
Forecast is for high 90's (95+) so my aim is to manage the heat. that is my goal. If I can do that, I've got this.
(so managing the heat means: eat/drink on bike/take my no-doz/nutrition/salt; on run: take fuelbelt, take ice at all stops, salt.).
I'm so excited!
HERE I COME EAGLEMAN for my 10th!!
