This was a pretty big week for me; biggest week since my bike crash almost 2 months ago! The goal this weeks was work on my PT and get the run going. I don’t have much time left to prepare for a marathon. So I ran the most I have run in a very very long time. I actually did 25 miles this week and I finally started (an committed to) a run walk approach. I run a mile then walk for a minute. I figure this should be an easy method to use in the Ironman because I can essentially run from aid station to aid station and walk the aid station (plus a little). It doesn’t involve any extra beeping on my watch and breaks the marathon up in to 26 bite size pieces! I did 6 this week like this and it went fantastically. I used it again at the Hollywood Half (race report to follow) and I manged to run a 2:13 (not too bad considering). I was very sore after the race and thanks to the kindness of an awesome Dailymile friend I had a fantastic massage that really helped my IT band
The plan for this coming up week is to keep doing my PT exercises and just keep trying to run. I also have my last long ride planned for Sunday. Looking to do 115 ish on the bike. I can’t wait for the race day to get here! I am so ready to take a break from training!
