Its that time again...we're headed to Panama City

This is it.  The final "dress rehearsal" ride and run before the Ironman.  We are headed to Panama City on Friday morning after the Boot Camp Workout.  This time, its the real deal: the full 112 mile bike on Saturday and a 20 mile run on Sunday.  This will be my most difficult workout to date and I am extremely nervous.  To me, this is the confidence builder workout that needs to be completed in full and completed well for me to feel like I am ready for November 1st.  I honestly don't know what I am more concerned about: the ride or the run.  I have to head to Disney today for a full day of diving work then Ill be able to focus on this weekend.

If you follow my blog, thank you so much for reading and if you could leave me a comment now it would really help!! Im very concerned about doing this and your support is greatly appreciated!!!

You are amazing. All of your hard work is going to pay off. Just keep your head on straight, pay attention to your nutrition and electrolytes and relax.

I will be with you in spirit.

I remember my weekend of training just like yours, it is massive. I couldn't sleep for days before it and I cried alot - I was soooo worried about it. Worried about failing and seeing all that training go down the tube as well as my Ironman dream.

In the end, that weekend boosted my confidence so much that I went into Ironman day KNOWING I was gonna finish. The same thing will happen to you - don't spend precious energy worrying about it like I did. Go out there and prove to yourself that you can do it.

GO FOR IT GIRL - You can do it; you WILL do it.
