Because I am freaking starving!!
All this Ironman training is starting to hit me. Am I faster? No! Am I stronger? No (but maybe stronger smelling)!
But I sure am hungrier!
In traditional Formulaic style, I am WAY behind on my race reports and I think I will actually get one out soon, but in the mean time lets do the numbers:
Distance: 17408 (10.88 miles)
This is better and worse than last month.
Both the swim and the run are slightly lower than last month, but the bike is 31% higher! So overall, I am 17% higher this month than last month.
I only have 8 weeks until IMCDA, so it’s about time to ratcheting it down and begin hell month!
For the next month and half, I am thinking lots of bike, lots of run and lots of swim over and over again!
Originally, I started the year, thinking that I would go fast and later, about now, I would start working on distance. Somehow I screwed up my training plan and forgot to work on speed on the bike so now I am forced to work on speed and distance all at once.
Hence the 'hungry as a horse'!
I’m looking forward to the end of this training cycle so I can get back to a normal life.
Anyone know what that looks like? What is normal nowadays?
