After a good two-week build period, the middle of July came and beat me down like a dog. A stomach bug laid me low for the best part of a week and then a work trip to Philadelphia hindered the training a little more. Fortunately I was due a recovery week anyway but being sick doesn't really count as recovery does it!
I didn't have the whole City of Philadelphia following me but it was pretty crowded on the riverfront trail! I thought about jumping a couple of benches but then realized that I would end up just tripping and making a fool of myself as well as needing some dental work.
So anyway, it's back to the Ironman training, I finally actually signed up for ChesapeakeMan so only two months to go.....lots of work ahead.
