This should have been my last peak week and I was well on track to have a big week until the weekend came around. I had a 16 mile run in my plan and was really hoping it wold go well. The half marathon the week before was so-s0 and I really needed to have a good run for my on peace of mind. Well, despite my best effort to run/walk it I ended up pretty much walking the last 3 miles. I ended up with a very swollen knee. It was so angry that the next day I cut my ride short and only did 70 miles. Nothing to be gained at this point and if I blow up completely with three weeks to go that would be bad!
Emotionally and mentally I am done with training. I don’t want to do anything. I want the race to be here and I will just muscle my way through it no matter how much it hurts. I know I will finish the Ironman. I have to believe that I will find the strength and endurance to get it done on May 5th; because based on how my body is preforming on the run it is a little scary. I need a break. I need a vacation. I need a warm beach with a hammock… Soon!
