Ironman Canada is four months from today.
Earlier this week, when I couldn’t sleep because my mind was racing, thinking about the season’s first tri (it’s next Saturday), which morphed into thinking about IMCA, I asked Nick if he thought my training volume was enough… if I was putting in enough hours on the bike (damn you, Minnesnowta, for keeping me on the trainer!), if I was swimming enough, if I was just doing enough.
Turns out my training volume is more than he was doing four months out from his first two 140.6s.
Mind (somewhat) reassured.
Tonight’s 10-mile run on the dreadmill helped to kind of quell the snippets of self-doubt, too. And, my first outdoor ride on my Argon, in aero, is Saturday.
That said, four months to go! There’s a lot of training volume ahead, a lot of long bike rides and track workouts and 3,000-yard swims.
And, it’s gonna be awesome.
