Super challenging ride today! 80 miles, starting in the freezing cold (44 degrees) and ending in the heat of the day (88 degrees). Giant hills (4,448 elevation gain). Mean bike chasing, leg eating dogs. Beautiful scenery. Best training partner in the world.
The realness of the Ironman being 4 weeks away is really starting to sink in. And to be perfectly honest, I could not be more terrified. Next weekends training schedule.
But hell, it’s go time. Too late to freak out or back out now.
