Feeling a bit better

Today, I'm feeling a little less blah, but still having feelings of being lost-what to do with myself since I have started tapering. I had a conversation with a teammate last night at P2 about tapering and he was having the same feelings of lost motivation and I guess daily ritual-glad I'm not the only one!

Yesterday, as I mentioned above I trained with P2. I ran 75 minutes (approximately 9 miles) with another guy that is doing Madison as well. I felt great on the run-much better than on Sunday's run. After the workout, a group of us headed over the Bulldog for dinner. Rob a guy from P2 raced Louisville over the weekend had showed up to tell his story about Ironman Louisville. I miss Louisville!

Over dinner Jason (a friend from P2) was trying to convince me to do an ultra marathon in Door County with him-I told him that I would have to think about it especially since it's only 5 weeks after ironman and with last years over doing it, I don't know that I want to go through that again. Plus, I think that if I do an ultra marathon it would be Badwater in California. But we will see what happens!

Today, I did a short 45 minute continuous swim at LTF wearing my wetsuit. I felt great and just took it easy making sure not to aggravate in my shoulder being Ironman is only 1.5 weeks away. My swim went great-I felt strong and I felt well balanced in the water. I can only hope that I feel that good ironman day!
