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.
Amazing what three days of rest can do for your body. I spent Saturday and Sunday with the family in Gothenburg. Satruday we were at Liseberg amusement part from just before 11am until nearly 8pm. The next day we visited Universium and were there from 10am until nearly 3pm before driving home. On Monday I visited Leon, since I felt I was mentally over my Ironman race, but that my body was not really on board. Leon was able to gave my body a push towards recovering. so to let that treatment have full effect I rested the rest of the day.
It’s been a long day. Up just after 7:00, breakfast with the girls, and then packed the car for Kalmar.
Even if I’m not nervous about my results, I’m still nervous about the whole day. I’ve dug my own grave and can’t blame any else but myself.
Technically it is nine days out, but by this time next week I will be done with all my training. The only thing left will be to register for the race, check out the Ironman store and expo area, practice swim around the course Friday morning, drop of my bike Friday afternoon, eat, sleep and then block out the fact that I am not the person I was last year, and do what I can with the person I am now.
