While the training and workouts seem pretty straight forward on paper, in reality, it's not. As I learned this weekend while zig-zagging my way through the beautiful countryside, getting from point A to B is not always a linear process. There will be ups and downs, patches of rough road and tons of other obstacles along the way (like getting stung by hornets or chased by dogs, as also happened during my long ride). Success realistically involves rolling with the hills, using any downhill momentum to your advantage, toughing out the harder stretches, having a sense of humor and realizing it's all a part of the package deal and adventure that is reaching the finish line successfully.
36 days and counting until race day.
21 days of "peak" ironman training ahead.
Time to find out what this "ironman training" is all about!
