Nice work taking the ‘extra’ time to work on your race plan! The more prepared you can be before race day, the more organized you will be, the less you will second guess yourself (watch out for all of those compression socks!) and you can make the best decision for yourself when something doesn’t go as planned. And with a 17 hour day of exercise, something is bound to ‘not go as planned.’ But that’s Ironman for you….Be prepared for anything!
Good luck gentlemen!
