Enjoy my Ironman Kalmar video.
I personally thought that last years video from Finisher Pix was better, not sure if it was the location of the videos, or maybe there was music in last years video. I was happy to see that I was running at all the locations of the cameras 😉
I even sent a little comment to Kalmar to inform the volunteers about the locations of the cameras since one guy seems to be standing in front of the camera at T2.
I didn’t wait as long as I did last year to get a new IM tattoo. But with no swimming again on Thursdays and Liseberg this weekend, that meant no swimming again until Tuesday, so I figured this would be the least intrusive to my fall swim training.
I went back to Old Sailor Tattoo and Macke. I was really happy with the other work he had done for me on my first Ironman tattoo as well as the work he did on my back.
I originally only planned to write this in Swedish, but since I think some of my English speaking triathlon friends might get something out of this, I will re-post here in English.
This year I crossed the finished line of my second Ironman roughly 64 minutes slower than last years race, which was my debut. Most of my friends were able to go 15-45 minutes faster. What happened to me, and was I happy with my time?
This will be one of the last post about Ironman for a while.
It only seems right to start with Friday morning. I woke up at 6:45, threw on a shirt, grabbed my swim bag and walked over to the swim start for a test swim of the course. It was kind of windy, but nothing that effected me. However, I decide that on Saturday my only goal was to swim loose and relaxed under 60 minutes. The way I was feeling and the water conditions I knew it would take a huge effort for me to swim down around 55min like last year.
