Super Frog tomorrow. Half-Ironman. (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run) The last race in preparation for Ironman Arizona.
I took it very easy this week. Not much different from the taper week during Ironman in November. It's amazing what a few less workouts will do for energy levels.
Packet pick up day. The day before the race, the calm before the storm so to speak.
Wore my lucky hat today. Picture on the left. Yup, that's Grandpa and little Brennan. Not to mention it is Grandpa's birthday today, that can't hurt the luck either.
Ordered a few Team Cassidy stickers for the seat post of my bike. I'll let Jamie tell you what the numbers mean if she chooses.
The swim tomorrow is two laps in open ocean, with a beach run to get to the second lap. A year ago I would have freaked out about such a swim. Luckily now I'm able to focus on it as just another swim.
This race has a lot of history attached to it. It's just about as old as the Hawaiian Ironman and has always been attached to the Navy Seals (hence the two lap swim with a beach run and a lot of beach running during the half-marathon). Competitor Radio recently had a podcast with the Race Director. The ten minute podcast can be found here.
Should be a warm one for San Diego tomorrow. Looking forward to it.
PS: I'm gonna whoop Lance. When I beat him tomorrow Jamie owes me Sushi.
