Quote of the day
If you can drive there, you can bike there.
If you can bike there, you can run there...
Made this one up myself :). Every now and then my sis will tuant me, "why take the car when you can run there..."...hmm don't tempt me :)
I have been re-reading Gordo's and other's articles on Ironman training. I reflected on what I did well last season (through half educate guess and half fluke) and things I need to work on. To say the least, I am very happy with last season. I have trained close to Ironman volume and have learnt a great deal on training itself. I did not have any *major* injury and completed HIM as planned.
The perspective that guide me last year will need to be modify as I become more in tune to my body and how it responded to stress (phyiscal, mental and emotional). More on that later....
Ironman Florida is this Sat. Quite excited. Even though I am not part of it, there are a number of tri bloggers participating this race. A large number of them are first timers too.
I put their bib number beside their name so I can track them on Ironmanlive.com on race day :)
Good luck guys. It will be a fulfill day under the sun.
I hope I didn't forget anyone.
