That’s right! Ironman Louisville is just over a month away. After returning from Canada, I took a week off to help prepare myself mentally and physically to continue my training for L-ville. This is the longest I’ve trained for a season, for long-distance racing. Typically once August arrives, my “A” races are complete. At some point last year, though, I thought it would be a good idea to sign up for two Ironman races for this season. I have since questioned my sanity. 🙂
So where am I? I seem to be asking myself this question a lot lately. A LOT. To be honest, I’m tired of training. Yes, I said it. I’m done. Mentally and physically. I have lost my swim, bike, run love, but I am trying to remind myself that it’s times like these that I will learn the most about myself. I’ve had some great training sessions and some that have me questioning why I’m toeing the line at another IM. I know when it’s all said and done, I’ll be able to reflect on this tri season and everything that has happened will all suddenly make sense. Right?? Right – that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. In all honesty, though, I’m really looking forward to IMLOU; I just have to make it there without crashing and burning beforehand.
