Ironweek 18

It's been a while since my last Ironweek update - I feel like I'm starting from scratch! In that vain, I'll post my spreadsheet pic and just leave it at that. Week 18...zero's across the board.

I do feel great as far as my heart and my recovery from the Marathon last Sunday. I've gotten a short run in and a swim, and both went off without too much of a hitch. Tomorrow's bike will be telling.

This is all getting very exciting now. I just threw some workouts into my Training Peaks calendar, and with the races I have scheduled there is very little time left for training blocks. I think it's going to work out perfectly with rest weeks ending on race days, and the races are spaced out just right to cycle the training. At least that's the plan, barring any more setbacks, sicknesses, etc...

No, The Bigun's video submission didn't make the Evotri top 10 - like that was any suprise! I hope the next two skills tests don't revolve around technology and/or computer skills. Either way...I've been looking for a rear race wheel on e-bay (I know, left field...) and haven't been very lucky in my bidding. Folks think those HED Jet 90's and Deeps are worth more than I do - but that's the beauty of e-bay. I certantly haven't been shopping very victoriously.

Tacboy 'n Bigun Episode 4 - as of yet unnamed - will hopefully air tomorrow or Wednsday. It's way long right now (68 min), and we still have fun stuff to add, so the parring down process is difficult. Look foward to the interview with Blink and some great comments by some of your favorite bloggie peeps. Oh yea, and TriDummy...

But you're Bigun- how did you not make top 10?? I was afraid you and Comm would have split the vote anyway. You've still got my vote for one of the 2 other spots.

18 weeks, man we are close!

Lana said...

Yeah, good try on the video. I guess. Although I sorta thought that just being Bigun mighta got you in. I'm with Stronger, though, I think you're in for one of the other 2 spots!

Good to recover... glad that bit of the plan is working!

I am surprised that your video did not make it to the second round ;) It was gripping! Funny! Inspirational!

Well, it was better than the guy on the trainer in the snow.

I thought "bigun status" would zoom you to the top!

Maybe next time you emphasize that you have much more "advertising space" available than the people they chose.

18 weeks, WOW!

Sorry you didn't make the Evotri cut but glad to hear you're recovering well from the marathon. If you need help applying for the other 2, let me know.

what do you mean..."oh, and TriDummy."

That's no way to introduce the dude whose guest starred in three of your podcasts, Jerky.
