Bellin Run Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is the Bellin Run. So today i am Tapering. It is a 10k in Green Bay. Number are at an all time record this year with 17,000 registered and even more expected to show up on the day. I read somewhere this is the 4th biggest 10k in the country! Hope to beat last years time of 59:01. We shall see.
Rain could be in the forecast but i really do not mind the rain. With this in mind i have not trained today. My legs feel much better after yesterdays 15miles. The link for the Bellin is :

Above is a dedication picture to my dog Buster. He has shots this week and has been very sluggish the last two days. Feel better boy!!

Tomorrow will be just one week left until my  first ever Half Iron Man...eeeek. I still feel like i need to get 2 more 50 mile rides in but i think that it might only come down to one with only 8 days left! I am wishing i had got more 50mile bikes in before now. It is very hard trying to fit in a 3-4 hour ride in at the weekends with all my family duties. The only way i can seem to do it is if i get up at 5am on a Saturday. I really can not see how i would fit in the training for a Full Ironman.

Diet: I was doing great this week but i am feeling weak today. I have no clue why. When i look back it seems Fridays are a bad day for me and i want to eat lots of junk. I know i have not been eating as many fruits and vegtables as i should be today. This afternoon i am going to make sure i get plenty of water in so i do not go off course.

I may pick up my race packet tonight as i am meant to be doing some race leafletting. I will get back to you and let you know how the 10k went as soon as possible.


  1. Awwww love my little Buster! When did you take that picture of him??

    You'll do GREAT tomorrow at the Bellin! 10k is a breeeeeeze for you baby! :)

  2. Good luck with the rest of your iron man training! Buster sure is cute! I hope he feels better soon.

  3. Awesome!!! I can't believe your HIM is coming up next weekend :) You'll do great... you are doing so good with your training... and I can't wait to hear about it!
