I have much regret today after doing my first race since Ironman Arizona. My fitness must be at a all time low! I was totally unprepared, untrained and out of excuses. The "I just did an Ironman" excuse has worn out it's welcome and it's time to get serious (I mean really serious) again. The weather was less than desirable, but this certainly does not dimiss the fact that I was not ready for this race. It began raining on the swim and rained/drizzled the entire bike and run. At one point during the run it appeared to be flash flooding as puddles were building by the second. I am thankful for this wake-up call and intend to get busy!
