Don't Tell Anyone

Ssshhhh! I've got a secret to tell. This biking isn't so bad. Ssshhh! Don't tell anybody! Especially not Coach. I've been riding now twice a week, with most rides being between 30 minutes and an hour. The soreness is going away. I've been able to increase my RPMs comfortably. And my mileage is coming up. I think the thing I like most about it is it's a nice respite from running. Marathon training has been extreme and I'm ready for a break.

Speaking of break, after the marathon Coach is making me take a mandatory 2-3 week, absolutely no working out, break before Ironman training begins. I think I might die during that time.

No gym, no nothing? wow 2-3 weeks. Can we get a gambling pool on how long you actually last???

30-60mins? Oh anyone can like that sort of riding. Come back and tell us how much you like riding when you're at the 5+ hour mark.

And does coach charge for those weeks you don't train? lol

That break will be so good for you! I'm looking forward to my several weeks of do-nothing-and-get-fat after IM.

Yay on the biking!

I don't read this so don't worry. During that break I think you might get deep recovery & grow stronger next year! :)
