      Ah, Wapack trail - I want to try that one too :) Yeah, the humidity is killer today, so 8 miles is probably about right!

      this is the perfect approach to the week. in the limited time i've known you, i have realized you are just very brave and willing. i think that spirit (and a strong fitness base, of course) is what will make the difference for you next weekend. don't be afraid! and no, do NOT try to fit in any heroic training this week. recovery! yoga! massage!

      What Ann said. Your spirit counts for a lot when it comes down to the tough miles; it is all you have at the end. You'll do great in your IM! Relax a bit first though ;)

      You've been doing a fair bit of travel... that'll run you down quite easily. I hope you get some stable quiet time before you are thrust into your race! But still, sounds like fun, and nice miles + swim :)

      true. One more red-eye back tonight and hopefully some quality rest the days after. That should fix it.
