I've just realised it is only 10 days until race day. How has that come so quickly. My usual travel strategy of get to the race a few days before can't be implemented here obviously so I find myself confused and surrounded by bits of bike and clothing and wondering how I am going to get a training session in today. Not going to happen so I'll just have to do laps around Heathrow and LA tomorrow to keep myself sane.

My number for the race is 1723 and the race will be streamed live on Ironman Live. I expect you all to be having a big party and I will bring something back for the group with the biggest and best party!!!

More tomorrow.
