36 days out. is that possible? I remember when it was more than a year out, then exactly one year out, then: this year, then 6 months, 5, 4, 3, 2... now we're at 5.5 weeks. holy bejeezus.
the training is pretty much on track, and tonight I started obessing over the logistics. I renamed the "training/ racing" category in my Palm to "Ironman Cozumel" and added the following:
> buy new tire
> buy extra tubes
> print out worksheets from IronPlanner
> order more Infinit
> make binder for all IM docs (registration, hotel, plane, etc)
> bike jersey
> new running shoes
> make tune up/ pack up appointment with Race Pace
> make general to-pack list
> make swim packing list
> make bike packing list
> make run packing list
> make SN bike bag
> make SN run bag
> buy cell phone that will work in Mexico
> make packets for family (time estimates, where I'll be when, etc.)
last night I had an odd + unsettling dream: I was doing an IM distance AquaVelo. I got out of the pool (yes, pool swim), and headed into the locker room to change for the bike. Realized when I got there that I only did one mile of the swim, so I went back to finish. When I got out of the pool everyone was out on the bike. I started the bike but couldn't find my helmet, and by the time I grabbed (stole?) someone else's it was getting really late so I quit. I was so mad at myself because I knew my training graphs would be off.
Yes, we are definitely getting closer to race day !
