Where Am I?
I am 17 days out from a half ironman event. You may ask, “what is a half ironman?” Great question. It’s a 1.2 mile open water swim, followed by a 56 mile bike ride, and a 13.1 mile run. Sounds like fun, no?? I have been so busy training (and working) that I haven’t written anything out here. Sure, I post every calorie I put in my body and every workout to my onilne log, but unless you are an endurance athlete, you probably don’t have a clue where that log is.
I’m getting ready to taper for my event. That’s where I scale back the intensity and duration of training in order to have my body peak on race day. I’ll try to post some pictures and stories of the happenings since my marathon PR back in February in Austin – the injury, the comeback, the heroic climbs, the podium finish, and all the nitty gritty in between.
So stay tuned… there is definitely more to come.
