Ahhh….it’s finally time to taper for Ironman Lake Tahoe. It’s been a long build and my body is ready to recover so I can show up on race day fresh. I wish I could say that I am 100% confident about the race but that would be a lie. I am confident that I could finish an Ironman at my current fitness level but I am a little scared of the bike course at Tahoe.
I am not the strongest climber and there is somewhere between 6,500 and 10,000 ft of climbing depending on who you ask.
But the hay is in the barn and worrying will only cause me stress and burn my energy. Now I need to focus on race strategy, eating well, resting and staying healthy. I leave for Tahoe in just 4 days, and I am ready to get this adventure started.
Please start sending me good, strong, happy, beat cut-off times thoughts!
