Kona we are here!
Arrived 3 days ago and already time is flying by. I struggled a little with jet lag but feeling better today, I can't believe its less than 2 weeks until the big day!
So far I have enjoyed a swim in the sea, ridden my bike a few times, once going out on the course to see the never ending road. I have also ran once the heat and once in the pouring but hot rain. Its been an amazing few days already.
Yesterday I went out with Ruth, Sarah and some of the Zwift team which was pretty awesome, they were so friendly and it was nice to get some tips for how to race out here.
After my first ride out I noticed a tear in my tyre, in which I thought might be ok but didn't want to risk it for race day so went to a great bike shop called Bike Works and got them to put 2 new tyres on for peace of mind. It probably sounds silly but think I would be having nightmares for days if I did puncture on race day and knew I could have stopped it from happening. It doesn't mean I won't now get one as that is kinda out of my control but least getting it fixed might help prevent it.
I am really hoping I get used to this heat and humidity as its tough going so far.
Hope to keep you guys up to date with how my final Kona prep is going. Less than 2 weeks to go! AHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
