Nightmares already?

Last year my most vivid Ironman nightmare was being there, it was a pool swim (interesting this was before the dam broke) and I couldn't find Craig, who had the car keys and all my gear was in the car.  Last night I had my first Ironman 2012 dream.  This time I had already swam and was in this huge locker room and couldn't find or remember my locker where my gear was, and I couldn't find Craig.  So what is this recurrent theme of not finding my husband and having no gear mean-------

Good strategy, got to the gym at 5:00 am signed up for a bike and swam for 1/2 hour before class.  First swim in a very long time, great spin class today.  I'm starting to get excited about IMAZ 2012!

Snow Canyon

Made the hotel reservations, paid the entry fees, Snow Canyon on Nov. 5.  Craig is doing the half, I'm doing the 5k.  This morning I got to spin class a half hour early and still couldn't get a bike, darn!  I think I'm going to start going at 5:00 am when they open, sign up for a bike, swim and then go to class.  Yuck, but the good thing is it will force me to start getting my swims in.  This morning I went back to Redlands and ran,so it wasn't a wasted morning.

Doubled bike time!

Last Saturday 10 miles, this Saturday 21.  Next Saturday I'm driving sag for 3rd annual Temple to Temple. We had a dinner party at our house last night so I didn't get to do Save a Sister, fun dinner party though!

I am so happy to be back on my bike...... I really do love to ride.  Today I would have loved to do more but it's a busy Saturday with too much to do, but the bike and I are back together and ready to put in some miles!

Runners Series Sold Out

I got Kev and I registered for the St. George Runners Series this morning.  Good thing I was on the computer right when it opened, it sold out super fast.  Now just get those two races done.  I think Save a Sister will be first up.

St. George Marathon done, Toenails done!

I really wanted to break 5 hours, I did 5:05, I ignored some intestinal problems until Mile 22 when I couldn't ignore them anymore.  Maybe without my trip to the port o pot???  I don't know, it was still a PR with very little training so from that perspective I can't complain.  I will work harder and have decided to do the runners series again :(.  Thanks and thanks again for my sherpa!  About mile 25 I was seriously thinking......."I want to do another Ironman???? What is wrong with my brain?" I don't even want to finish this marathon. Not to worry, I did.
