Bino and I arrived in Galena about 2 pm. Beautiful day and great scenery. Last year , I was nervous and anxious. This year - there is an excitment. As we drove to drop off Silver at T1, I remembered the course and the hills. After the PIG , I have no fear of these hills. I know that I will finish. For better or worse, I will enjoy tomorrow. It will be an awesome day!

I signed up for IM Louisville as a volunteer. I am drawn to the IM . I signed up for the transition from 430am to 930am and also for the finish line from730-midnight. I am so excited. I have watched all the IM on tv and it brings tears to my eyes because of the accomplishment of it. To anyone who is competing---I wil do whatever I can to provide support if you let me know.

I have been taking it easy this week before the DU. I am planning to begin a heavier training schedule next week.

I heard there was a very good yoga instructor on Monday nights. I know yoga would be good for me. I have no balance, core strength, or flexibility. I proved that again tonight as you can see in my photo. I loved the instrucotr but that was it. Between looking stupid and falling most of the time, I got a bad headache. That's it. I'm done. Tomorrow I plan to spin then lay low the rest of the week until after the DU. Monday begins the new training plan.

BIKE (ROAD) - 14.1 MILES / 54 :10 MIN. / AVE SPEED 15MPH / HR- zone 2

I can't thing of anything more perfect than today. My family, weather, brunch together, going to the bike store and then an evening ride. It felt good to finish the day with a ride on Silver. The winds were up going out but it was a nice push home.

I am getting excited about Galena(IL). Bino my son is going with me to be my pit crew. I think we'll have a good time. I want to look up my times from last year. There will be some more challenging hills to face next weekend. But after the PIG, I can face anything!

Waddling with a big smile............
