I saw this t-shirt design while browsing the web (you can buy it here) and the sentiment feels appropriate. This is coming from the girl who took (count it!) THREE naps yesterday after logging my longest training sessions of the season on Friday/Saturday:
Friday night: 3600 yrds swimming (1hr 10min)
Saturday: 95 mile ride + 4.75 mile run (6 hrs 40min)
Let's do some math: that's just shy of 8hrs of training in approximately 24 hrs. And I am wondering why I can't keep my eyes open?
For the next 3 weeks, this will be my world. For the past year, I've been wondering what "ironman training" truly feels like. What do the workouts look like? How will it feel? And the best question: What in the world will I EAT?
|YES, totally true. Healthy(ish) food and chocolate preferred =)|
36 days and counting until race day.21 days of "peak" ironman training ahead.
Time to find out what this "ironman training" is all about!
