|Gotta EARN it!!|
The heat has been miserable this summer with record highs. I have been trying to keep my endurance workouts in zone 2 but it is really difficult with the heat & humidity. I have not raced since Mighty Mite (July) and I'm getting a little antsy. Not that an endurance event needs to be 'raced', but I am excited to experience the race environment in Cancun.
I am working on making my race plan which includes nutrition and the logistics of getting my gear to the race site. My bike and I have been bonding really well lately, she has been a faithful training partner.
I have just realized that after the Half Ironman I will have 7 weeks to train for the New York City Marathon. Yikes...I was thinking I had longer....well, guess I'll need to be ready to bump up my runs.
I'm excited to hear about my friend Jenifer's first 70.3 coming up in 2 weeks in Utah- I have learned so much from other people during this process. Thanks to all my Tri-mates for sharing your adventures with me.
Say some prayers for me & my 'Ironmates' as we enter the final weeks of our journey!
