Who is this?

My good run continues..After being sick as a dog (for about 9 hours) after my 4500 yd swim on Saturday, I did SF century on Sunday, then a 3 hour run on Monday. Now all I have to do is do it all in one day (and then some)!

Speed run workout today. My legs still feel strong! I do not know who has inhabited my body but I am hoping it is some 30 year old amazing triathlete that will take me to the finish line of IMCDA.

I love this part of Ironman training when people start to ask if you are losing weight. To which I seem to inevitably feel the need to say Oh it's only because I am training for an Ironman. As soon as it is over, I will back to fighting this last 10 lbs again! I think I will just start saying Thank you!

I am truly starting to trust Mark Allen and my Coach Luis that maybe, maybe I will actually finish IMCDA feeling fairly decent. That is my goal. To smile and feel decent at the end..It would also be really great if I finished in the top half of my age group (not the 30 year old one)..

I had a great week last week... but today, my long run nearly killed me. My legs felt SO heavy...

Hope I can keep up with you for at least part of the race!

All in one day (except the sick for nine hours part!!) and feel good at the end. Sounds like a big goal but you're already so close - you'll smash that goal!

Now I know you are ready! Great job! I guess as long as you keep at it, eventually things start to come around.

Your training volume is crazy. I can't wait to 'track' you at CDA. I'm sure you'll do great.

Very inspiring. :)
