Last Long Weekend
Let the volume reduction begin!!!!!!!!!!!!
My legs are jello, my mind is mush, my body is all like "What the hell, bro?"......but I'm done. Done with the long volume and long weekends. I'm done with the fighting through fatigue to crank out a few more miles. I'm over the "I'll just sit here and watch my movie and peddle randomly".....I'm done.
Since my training up until the end of January was spastic at best, I've had to revamp the training plan over and over. I do have two 3 hour trainer sessions and a 75 mile / 5 mile brick this coming up weekend....and also a 14 mile run.
The following weekend, is a short 15 mile run but only a 35 mile bike which I will do around the hood, just to make any adjustments and make sure the bike is good before heading down.
I think that I have my nutrition dialed in too. I've had some good long rides during this training plan. Mostly because of my nutrition that works for me (and nutrition/dydration the day before).
I'm worried about having a bad session over the next 12 - 14 days that will set me back mentally. I'm worried about being sick, or getting hit by a car, or taking a misstep off of a curb, or getting sick.......I hope the worrying doesn't get me sick.....LOL.
I have 19 days to get thru. 19 days until I hear "Brad Donovan.....You ARE an Ironman".
