Today is a rest day, which means no workouts. And, I'm going to enjoy it.
This was one of my biggest weeks yet, and man - I'm tired (that's the last time I'll say it in this post. I know you all are getting sick of hearing it).
Last week's totals:
Swim - 8,680 yards
Bike - 170.3 miles
Run - 50.84
Total of 254 miles. Damn.
As I’m winding down the big training weeks (this weekend is my biggest ride, next week is still pretty big, then gently I drop down into taper land) I know that Ironman isn’t physical. I know that physically, I can do it. But Ironman is mental. Ironman is your mind telling your body to go. Ironman is sucking it up, princess. Ironman is trusting the plan. Ironman is in your head. or; more to the point, getting outside of your head when your brain is asking you why you thought this whole Ironman thing was such a good idea.
34 days from today. June 27th. I will swim 2.4 miles, bike 112 miles, run 26.2 miles. I will breathe in the moment. I will put myself into the day. I will trust my training. I will suck it up, princess. I will listen to my body. I will ignore the voice of doubt in my head.
Tick tock, tick tock....
