Ironmaz - Training Log

Rest day
After 15 or so weeks of getting up early on Saturday and Sunday mornings to train, it is refreshing to get up and know that I don’t have to cover any particular distance on my bike or feet. It’s a strange feeling, however.

It’s been 6 days since the event and I’m still surprised by how quickly I have recovered. I expected to be stiff and sore for several days. Perhaps I am in better condition these days than before. Maybe the training paid off and that I was smart in my racing and didn’t push myself too far. Either way, I feel good and that is what is the most important.

I will have to start training for the Ironman in couple more weeks and this round will be much harder than the previous training cycle. But I know what I need to do for the Ironman. I need to push myself even harder than before for this event. The half-Ironman was hard and the full will be even harder. There will be some very long weekends coming up where I will put more mileage on my body than I will in my car.

But I am looking forward to it. I feel confident that I have the experience and the ability to cross the finish line in Tempe this year.

However, for now, I am going to enjoy the lazy morning and the early afternoon nap today.

Rest is just as important as training.
