The Ironman train is leaving and I'm on it. Now that Eagleman has passed, it is onto the next phase of the season, which is ChesapeakeMan on September 27th. Not an official Ironman event but a well-run independent "Ultra-distance triathlon" (still 140.6 miles).
The training will now change to focus on longer distance workouts, particularly on the bike. The first 100-miler of the year is planned for Sunday and that will be off the back of the ABRT club ride on Saturday....nothing like jumping in at the deep end!
You can never really count on anything in an Ironman but going into this training phase and based upon results so far this season, I would love to go for a sub-10 hour race. My first (and only) Ironman was in 2006 at Ironman Florida and I went 10hrs 43mins....somehow I need to shave off 43mins :)
Let the suffering begin.......
- You have to make the best of work trips and a $6 ticket to see the @memgrizz counts as a good deal in my book! . . . . . #memphis #grizzlies #IFB #nba2k19
- Just keep on rolling...even in 27° weather! The @parvillacycles Cranksgiving Ride was a chilly one today (the miles will pay off in the Spring they say) . . . . . . #IFB #cycling #specializedallez #specialized #ciclismo #gopro #parvillacycles #ridemd
- First frozen bottle ride of the winter today....23° to start but was fine for 2hrs. All you need is the right clothing! . . . . . . . #IFB #cycling #cyclingphotos #ridemd #rideoutside #ciclismo #shakethedust
- Remembering that hard work in the winter = results in the summer! Beginning to plan out the 2019 season & getting #stoked #IFB
