Ironman Events on TV
Tapering for this upcoming half inroman has led to extra time on my hands. In that time, I’ve ended up spending too much time in bike shops, running stores, and watching television. For those of you who haven’t seen recent tv listings, I wanted to point out that race recaps from 6 Ironman distance events would be on Versus in the upcoming weeks. Arizona was on a couple of weeks back (thanks, TiVo!!) – here are the remaining ones to watch:
Oct 7th at 4pm Ford Ironman Coeur d’Alene
Oct 28th at 4pm Ford Ironman USA Lake Placid
Nov 18th at 4pm Ford Ironman Louisville
Dec 2nd at 5pm Ford Ironman Wisconsin
Dec 16th at 4pm Ford Ironman Florida
Each program should be 1 hour long. Of course, check your local listings as all times I listed above are Eastern time. The Ford Ironman World Championship is slated to be aired on NBC on December 1, 2007 from 4:30 – 6:00 pm Eastern.
I have no idea how I will occupy myself during the rougly 3 week taper that Ironman Lake Placid will require next summer. I guess I still have 9 months or so to figure that out. As for today’s stats – it was an easy 1 hour spin. All the time in the saddle on what was a mostly flat course. I’ll do a short swim in the morning to keep the feel for the water and consider my work complete.
