That is it! I have done the hard work and now just to let it all soak in and steep so that on race day I can let it all out!
Um, I ran 36 miles this week, and at an average pace that is my goal marathon pace! O. M. G!!!
And here is how the month measured up as well!
I am so proud of how I have trained for this race. I can honestly say I did my best to do every workout Coach Jen gave me. There were days and workouts I may have tried to make excuses for but I never got far with that; there just weren’t any excuses that were valid! I have found that I just love the challenge that Ironman training brings and I love meeting that challenge every single week! You don’t here this often from Triathletes, but I am ready!
Highlight of the week was doing the Death Valley Century. I had never been to Death Valley and I was totally blown away with it. The ride was a bit more challenging that I was expecting mostly because the first 25 miles was essentially into a headwind. But after that it got a bit easier and we were rewarded with some amazing views for our hard work. Pictures don’t do it justice but here are a few from the trip. Click here for the Garmin data.
I ended the week with a 3 hour, 20 mile run on Sunday. For once, we had rain. It was a fabulous!
I have a the Santa Clarita Half Marathon next weekend. I will be shooting for sub 1:50 (I really want 1:45). But other than that I will just be letting the work soak in so I can have the Ironman race I know I am capable of!
