Ironman Coeur d’Alene Bike Course

June 13th, 2009

This is a video of one of two laps of the Ironman Coeur d’Alene bike course.  Watching it is an excellent way to familiarize yourself with landmarks,…mentally, you can fool yourself into thinking it’s your ‘home course’. 😉

My preparation has never been better, I’m 100% healthy (including only one minor cold virus in the past 12 months), I’m energized and ready to rock this race.

I’ve worked a lot on my stamina for the run. I’m confident that I’ll be able to hold form if or when I have a rough patch during the marathon. It is unacceptable to myself to let myself fall completely off pace – I’ve had such good run preparation that I know I can still run well when I’m hurting.

I’m emphasizing recovery now, while keeping the body fit and tuned. I’ll be training and resting in Vancouver Monday-Tuesday (hitting up Kitsilano Beach 138m pool, and UBC endowment lands park), then travel to Coeur d’Alene on Wednesday.
