Without the long run, my run volume gone down. It might seemed I did a lot. If u look at my long bike it is only 4.5 hr. I should be heading 6-8 hours.
Ironman USA is coming fast (July 22nd). I only have the month of June to train. July will be spent tapering and recovering.
What this mean is that training is the top priority. Two years of training and it comes down to 50 some odd days. Then I will be facing the longest race of my life.
I am keeping my life as 'free' as possible. Got to keep on getting rid of those self-sabatoge actions.
I am delegating my fellowship responsibility.
I am going to do less. Specifically in using the internet (gmail and facebook).
Bed time will be early as possible. 11 pm will be the latest. Will not touch the computer after 10 pm.
No more hot dates with Cliff :)
Mentally and emotionally I am good. I ain't burnt out and motivation to go long is still strong. This is the stage where I want to be at. Focus the most a few weeks from the race instead of pushing too hard 4-5 months ago and nuking myself.
My goal is to get darker and tanner every week. If I ain't getting darker, I ain't working hard enough. (Please don't misinterpret that I don't wear suntan lotion..I put on 45 and I still get dark).
That's about it....it is time to really drop the hammer and ramp up the volume.
