66 days to go until Ironman Florida. Subtract 14 days for a 2-week taper, and that leaves us with 52 days. Seven and a half weeks of training left to go.
Now since my babysitter has gone back to school, I'm re-figuring out how I can get my training done while juggling two three-year-olds. Lots of rain in the forecast too this week, so that precludes a lot of jogstroller time. Back on the indoor trainer with me!
Oh well, it is what it is. A lot can be accomplished in 52 days! Especially with a solid base. RIGHT? That's still nearly two solid months. My plan for this Labor Day weekend includes a century ride, but I'm not yet sure when I can squeeze in the swimming I need to do. And some running some time as well. It might end up being a run-bike-run brick again, starting in the darkness on the track. Whatever it takes!
But I just did a calculation that makes me feel a little better, a la Ellie:
So far in my training this year, I've done the equivalent of over:
- 29 Iron-distance swim legs
- 17 Iron-distance bike legs
- 19 Iron-distance run legs
