Tough start to my 7th week of my 24 week Ironman training..Longer training sessions. Sometimes just adding 30 minutes to a workout is always tough when you are trying to squeeze all the spare time you have to train, especially when I try to train early in the morning..
But so far I have been able to get my workouts in for this week. Tomorrow will be an optional/rest/recovery workout day.. But I think I need the rest day..
Just finished my 70 minute hill spinervals workout followed by a 30 minute brick run on the treadmill..I must be listening to "Zinn and the Art of Triathlon" podcast to much, because I did all my brick run barefoot.. Actually was not to bad, kept my heart rate in zone 2 using my new garmin 301 watch I just picked up..
My swimming I must say is still sucking ass. I was only able to do 2100 yards today because of time...Still having problems perfecting my stroke..Why oh Why is swimming so technical..A slight adjustment throws my swim stroke counts all out of whack..
Finally got to see the doctor about my foot. I was getting shooting pain in my foot after my runs. He said one of my bones in my foot is a little larger than usual and that is what is causing my foot pain..He had some doctor lingo for it but it's all foreign to me..But hopefully in a couple of weeks I will get my orthodics and all will be well..
Already May and time is flying..I think I'm getting used to these 15+ hour training weeks..I think so anyway..Still need a lot of work but again I have no choice...
My motto I live by " impossible is nothing"...
