I finally committed and purchased two tickets down to New Zealand to compete in Ironman New Zealand. It was a big move for me because normally I would have never spent what I spent to get down to this race. So I head down to my old home land on the 20th of Feb.
Training Week of 12/22-12/28
Biking- 10 hours
Running- 40 miles
I have been sleeping much better which has been huge in my recovery. I have never felt so fresh, and I owe it all to sleep....and a little to training smarter. It is very easy for me to go hard all the time thinking it will make me faster. Bottom line is, if I don't rest and recover, I'm absorbing very little from key sessions. Easy days for me are now VERY easy.
Hope every is enjoying the holidays. My favorite thing about Christmas...the Cadbury Creme Eggs on sale for 25 cents the day after! I ate 5 in one sitting. Did i feel sick, yes. Would I do it again, in a heart beat.
