Ironman Texas Giveaway

ironmantexas_worldtriathloncorporation_triathlonIronman Texas is now just a few days away and so what better way to celebrate that than with a giveaway.

So what am I giving away?  How about a case of CorePower for the final time prediction.  I will also do some giveaways for each individual event.

What are you dealing with?  I wrote my goals post that you can read here and then make a formulated guess.

Where am I at today:

Since doing the last video blog I have been in full taper mode.  I finished off my last long bike ride Saturday which was a total of two hours.  Since then I have run for a total of 1 hour and 45 minutes.  I don’t have any ill effects from not working out.  My legs feel strong.  My mind is developing that toughness that is going to be required come race day.  I don’t have any phantom injuries and most important is that I am not gaining any weight.  I have maintained my weight for the past 2.5 weeks of taper and I couldn’t be happier.

I am hydrating like a madman and drinking nearly 100 oz of water per day.  I am taking naps at lunch and getting to bed and falling asleep by 930p.

El Diablo came back from the shop yesterday and needs a quick brake pad change (I forgot to tell them to do that so I’ll do it myself) and new bar tape (it is race day you know) and he will be ready to go.

I picked up a new pair of Brooks Launch for my special needs bag.  I know that what you leave in there does not get returned but in this case I am planning on stopping to swap out sneakers.  The ones I leave behind smell like a sewer so they can keep them.  I am also thinking that with all the sweat, water and pee that is going to get logged in my shoes that there is a good chance of a blister and I want to avoid that.  Yes I pee on the run too.

So there you have it.  You have all the information you need to make an educated guess.

Here are the rules and giveaway:

  1. Predict the overall time and win a case of CorePower of your choice of flavor.  If you are within 30 seconds of the overall time then I will include my favorite recovery drink mix so that you can combine it with the CorePower.
  2. Predict the swim/bike/run time correctly and there will be a choice of protein bars (swim) and canister of sports drink (bike) from my sponsor Carla and Eddie Weber of Herbalife and the book Heart or Iron by Kyle Garlett (run)

Easy enough.
