Liz had me round out a three week build on Sunday with a 6 hour ride and a 40 min run off the bike. EXTREMELY early morning start to make sure I got back home for important things such as Skate World and soccer games! I about froze my skinny white ass off out there for the first hour and a half! BUT... the sun came out and my effort increased... so everything thawed just fine. Two GREAT things happened during this workout... I worked my race pace based off of wattage for 4 of the 6 hours of the ride... AND... I flew off the bike with what seemed like fresh legs, crushing my proposed IM pace... I had to dial it back 30 seconds/mile after the first mile! Turns out... I might be adjusting my marathon goal a bit. Oh yes. I'm happy.
Enjoying some recovery. Eating a ton. Enjoying the break from the rain. Two tests this week... one run... one bike. If I don't throw up in my mouth at least once during each test... I will be extremely disappointed. This is it. This is my last, (I think), test to fine-tune what I'll be doing in my first full Iron distance race... its time to go... go... fucking GO!
Hope you're all happy, healthy, and whole. Thank you for reading!
