Sage Words from a Clubmate

"There are only four months until Ironman so I'm going to train as smart as I can."

Sounds blindingly obvious but, considering how hard I've been going on my long rides and runs, something I needed to hear. I need to smarten up and sloooow down.

As well as deciding yesterday to take these words to heart, I also concluded that post workout naps are a very good idea. They'll make me even more boring (Saturday's sched will now be ride, run, pilates, stretch, eat, shower, nap - with me being ready to socialize at about 5pm) but the upside will be that I'll be far more pleasant to be around when I do socialize.

Four months - yikes!

Seeing how far you've come already I have no doubt that you'll make it. I just wish I could be there to see you break the tape in August. Alas we've got a wedding in Ontario. I'll be there in spirit and watching on Ironman live.
