Packing for Ironman should be an event. Two hours of sorting, organizing and packing everything up. My IM distance pool swim today in 61:45 (a new PB) seemed much easier by comparison.
Earlier in the week I did a wetsuit test swim with my new blue seventy booties and the thermal hoodie. The 2km swim was at Ironman intensity and I clocked a nice 30:40 which means I am definitely on track for a best time swim. Last night I did a 5km tempo run in 20:44 at above IM threshold just to get a bit of intensity in and then this morning a 20 minute water run.
Finally I am finished packing and can now rest and then get a good sleep before leaving to St George in the morning.
