So, after 2016 Ironman Louisville I told G and everyone else that I would never do another full Ironman. Something internally switched off out on the course, I could not ever explain what. It took my desire, passion, and my soul (yes I know that’s a little too dramatic) from me to ever want to do another long endurance race.
Now, here I am with a years rest from long distance and I’m ready and determined to do it again. It could be because I am turning 40 this year and I want to prove to myself that age is just a number. So, what is different this go ’round is that I have actually hired a coach. I am so happy that I do not have to plan my own workouts anymore, which I have been doing since 2011 for triathlon long distance. All I have to do is tell her what races I want to do and she comes up with my plan. Every week when I open up Training Peaks to see the weeks worth of workouts, it’s like it’s Christmas morning.
So, if I have time I am going to start keep a log of my workouts on this blog again….It’s not to bore you, but help me see what kind of progress I have made.
