4 days to Ironman Lake Placid 2010

Well it was a 6 hour drive that could have been the worst drive of my life, but it was the complete opposite.  amazing clear free flowing roads and in the last 40miles the scenary was really something.  So was the rain, it absolutly came down with thunder and lightning.  Some of the roads and their descents were crazy and there's me thinking it was the cycle route, it was but the other way, so climbing, more about the bike route later.  Arrived at our accomodation for the next 6 days, Schulte's Lodge right on the roadside of the bike and run course and only a mile from the transition and Start/Finish.

Unpacked and put bike together, need to borrow a track pump to inflate tyres.  Up for a morning swim in the lake then some breakfast and then a reckie of the bike course tomorrow I think will be good with picnic lunch on course.  Went to the "local store" today Big stocked up on breakfast and lunch food and some high calorie food.

Will get a 20min jog in tomorrow in the afternoon, also the Ironman Village opens so will have a visit there.

Looks as if you are having some of the good old English weather. At least it will keep you cool. I can imagine that it's a hilly area so not so nice cycling. Anyway hoping the weather is good for you on Sunday. Just about to watch Le Tour and see what Schleck can do.
