3 days!

Ironman Augusta is now only 3 days away!  I’m feeling an absolutely crazy mix healthy anxiety and excitement for this race. I know I’m ready and hella excited to try out the work I’ve doing with my swim stroke in a real race, but I’m also just nervous due to the fact that this is my first half Ironman since June and 3rd for the year.  It’s also going to be a great way to get in some intense training and racing to get me closer to Las Vegas ITU Worlds in November.

"Kona Punch"... someday baby, someday!

Whatever, my head is going nuts right now and had to get something out there!  I’ll update you guys after the race!

Good luck to the other members of the Apex Endurance team racing this weekend!

And this is what it looks like when a Paleo triathlete packs for multiple days of travel…

That's a lot of sweet potatoes... Regular eating, and then 1 at each meal on Saturday and 1 Sunday morning pre race

Yikes.  I won’t want any sweet potatoes for a few days after this race, I can assure you that!

  1. What’s your pre-race dinner?  If you’ve ever done a race long enough to Carb-load for, how did you do it?
I’ll discuss my art of a modified carb-load next week!
Happy weekend!

  1. Good luck Chuck! We share a few things in common including a love of triathlon, sweet potatoes and the fact we are both racing ITU Long Course in Las Vegas. I don’t normally writ eon stranger’s blogs, but you’s is especially intriguing. I’ve never met or read about any males with an eating disorder. I admire your openness about it. I’ll look for you in Vegas,

    PS I run the Nation’s Tri Facebook page, can I feature your blog later next week? I occasionally feature exceptionally good tri blogs.

  2. Good luck my friend. I’m not particular about pre-race meals or at least I wasn’t. Carb loading would depend on the length of the race – but best to start a few days out to maximize glycogen storage. Trying to fit in the amounts needed in one day before would be pretty uncomfortable.
