Deep in training for doing my first Full Ironman in Boulder this summer. Anybody else on here doing it?
Ironman4U saidSounds like you're training is going well. Just know that unless you're training in altitude and heat, the combination is going to be tough. Nothing you can't handle; you just need to be prepared. There are things you can do in advance to adjust to the altitude (from going out early to taking some supplements to increase red blood cells and oxygen in your blood. Of course, hydration is the key with any warm course as you probably know from racing in Texas. I'm a tri coach, so if you have questions, I'm happy to answer them.I am really surprised that both you and mrk100 are not in this triathlon again this year. You both could compare your race performance between this year and 2014. Both of you look more than ready to take on and conquer this mountainous race course with its extreme temperatures.
It's a great race and Boulder is such a cool town; as you know from volunteering last year. Enjoy!
