My Ironman training is finally coming to an end. This week is one last big week of training and then taper time! I can't wait. If you read my last post you know I had a really rough day last Friday for my long run. Fortunately this time I am going to talk about a great training day. Two days after my horrible run I had a great 100 mile ride followed by a 6 mile run. All in all I felt great for that workout. My nutrition was right on, my body was feeling good and it showed on my run pace. After I rode 100 miles I managed to do 6 miles at an 8:19 pace. I was pleased and only hope to feel that good after my 112 miles on Ironman day. Who knows why some days you feel so good and some days you don't. I always try to analyze it but never have come up with any specific reason or thing I do on good or bad days. All I know is I can't wait till May 20th. My Ironman is May 19th!
After my Ironman (2 weeks) I have Escape From Alcatraz which should be less pressure and more fun!
