Yesterday I commuted to/from work on the bike. The temps were in 45 degrees in the morning and not much warmer in the evening. At the same time, it's been in the
mid-80's in Phoenix. That's going to hurt! After I got home, I jumped on the treadmill for an hour. My knee was killing and it was all I can do not to stop after 45 minutes. I'm not sure it's going to improve enough to be even close to 100% in the next couple of weeks. It's very frustrating going from planning on racing the Ironman to hoping I can finish. I've trained for this for so long. The thought of not being 100% for race day is depressing. My goal was to show up race day knowing I did all I could in terms of preparation. Now it's all up in the air.
