With IM Louisville in the books and not getting a slot for Kona, I am pretty much done for the rest of season. I have Turkey Day this weekend and then a few running races into the Fall, I might even jump into the Richmond Marathon but we will see how it goes. The last few days have been bad as I got a cold after the IM and it really knocked me out. On Sunday night I was falling asleep at 9:00PM and then I slept for 11 hours on Sunday night which is unheard of for me.
Training and racing for Ironman really does take a huge effort and with IM Lake Placid on the schedule in July next year I am already looking ahead to the 2010 season. I'll take a break from structured training for the next few weeks and over that period will take a good look at this season to see what I can change/work on for the winter base sessions and 2010 season. One thing is definitely to swim more and over the winter months I plan on becoming a fish.....if I can drop 5 mins on my Ironman swim that will go along way to moving up a few notches on the Age Group ladder. The rest of the training program can be looked at in more detail in future posts.
- So this Ironman triathlon thing.....
- Already looking forward to the next #gravelstoke adventure on the @van_dessel FTB. While the NCR Trail isn't the most technical or adventurous there is something to be said for just being able to ride for 80 miles and not having to think about where you are going! . . . . . #parvillacycles #IFB #fulltiltboogie #gravelstokedevteam #gravelride #vandessel #cycling #ciclismo #instabike #ridemd
