I had a great run today, I could definitely tell I had not recovered from yesterday though! 6.2 miles in one hour 27 minutes. I know it does not seem faster a lot to you but I've been dealing with a nagging low back injury that I have been working my way back from and just a couple weeks ago I was averaging 17 minute miles! I'll take it, I'm happy to see things moving in the right direction. Next week I have a mock half Ironman with my local Tri group, and two weeks from today is my first triathlon of the season and the day I turn 50!
I had a great ride yesterday, but things got really tough! I hit road debris and about 22 miles into my ride and it made me flat. I change the tire but something went wrong with my CO2 and I wasn't able to fully fill my tire up so I had to finish my ride with the tire that was about half full. I wasn't able to get the MPH that I wanted to but that's life and that's the way goes during Ironman is well. I had a pretty considerable headwind coming back so let me get really tough as well! All in all it was a good ride but I only average just under 14 mph.

Happy Saturday and happy Valentine's Day everybody, I hope your training is going very well! I am on my way to LA for a 50 mile bike and followed up with a 5 mile run. I am reaching the height of my build for Oceanside right now so I'm feeling a little drained and a little under the weather but you have to get it done!

I woke up early this morning which seems to be the norm for me these days. 330 is awfully early to wake up, but I knew if I went back to sleep I'd end up oversleep and not getting my working out. So what did I do? I got up made coffee and put on YouTube and started watching Ironman videos that I headed to the pool for a 1.2 mile swim and then came home change clothes and went for a 4 mile run! I really feel as though my training is starting to come together so I'm excited to share that with you guys!
4 1/2 months or 136 days until IMCDA! All systems are a go, I am feeling good and strong but it is definitely time to step it up. My diet still need to get a little cleaner, and there is absolutely no excuse at this point and training to miss a workout! I would say I'm about 80% of mailing my targets which I am very excited about, but it's time to step it up to 100%!
