Today a friend, who is doing Ironman Wisconsin for the first time, and I drove up early in the morning to ride 2 loops of the Ironman bike course. Unlike the last time I rode the course, about a month ago, the weather was perfect. Low 70's all day, no humidity, and very little traffic. The ride went well, little slower than normal since my friend is a bit slower than me. When I got done I felt fine no neck pain, no butt pain, and not very tired. Feel like this has been a turning point week for training if I had too I could do Ironman next weekend.
