Well, race week is finally here. Seems like it sort of came up out of nowhere, but it’s already early July, and it’s time for this year’s big race, the half-Ironman in Peterborough. I actually followed a training program this year, and have spend the last 20 weeks getting ready for this. I didn’t have a great race a couple weeks ago in Muskoka, but hopefully have sorted out some nutrition and will be good to go!

I’m really taking it easy this week as I taper down, did a short 5km run yesterday, and hit the pool today. My run was so-so yesterday, but I felt great today in the pool. I have maybe once swam a 1:30/100m in the pool, but managed to rip off my last four 100’s in 1:28, 1:30, 1:32, 1:30 (with about 30 seconds rest) today. I couldn’t believe it on the first one, but it seems like something is finally starting to click in the pool. We’ll see how it works out on Sunday, but hopefully it is a sign of good things to come!
