The Final Count Down - Ironman UK

The Final Count Down - Ironman UK
Well I just had my last swim session this afternoon. The training is done and dusted, I cant get any fitter, its just a matter of being patient, resting, watching the diet until carbo load time, then let the games begin Sunday morning. I've been asked how I'll do quite a bit this past week. Its always a pretty hard question to answer, I know I'm as strong as ever, Im injury free, this is what I've trained for so I'm just looking to execute a solid incident free race and see what happens. I know im cable of a top 5 finish and have the ability to podium. It such a long race everybody knows anything can happen. What will be will be as they say. I've had a quick look at the current start list and looks to be the biggest international field assembled for Sherborne. The big names that stick out to me are obviously Bryan Rhodes - 2005 winner, Danish mean machine on the bike Jimmy Johnsen (with a name like that he should be a jock), England's Stephen Bayliss and last years 4th place finisher Martin Matula. I travel down to Sherborn tomorrow morning, if any you guys are down that way give us a shout Cheers Scott PS I'll send Andy my ergimo downloads from my last 2 big rides in the past few weeks - the power values were a bit wonky but everything else recorded fine. Ride 1 - 202km This was a solo effort going From Aberdeen North through Old Meldrum, Turriff to Banff before hanging a left to take me through to the Huntly bypass over the hills to Lumsden then back to Aberdeen via Bridge of Alford & Lumphanan to Banchory & home. this was a very windy & cold rainy day.

Head wind up to Tomintoul, tail wind mostly all the way home, weather was a tropical for the North east - it was sunny & dry. Power Download HERE
