Yeah, yeah, send me a box of Kleenex and a broken violin and order me the whaaaaaaaaaambulance.
Motivation to bike and run is at an all time low right now. Work has been piling it on me more and more and more and that is exhausting me more than anything lately.
The only silver lining is that I AM motivated to hit the pool as much as I can. Been totally riding that high this past fall!
But basically structured training until January 1 is going bye bye. My right leg has been giving me the middle finger for a few weeks now with a sore hamstring, sore knee, and blisters on the right foot. I am NOT feeling as "sharp" as I should be for this time of year.
With structured training with my coach starting up in the beginning of January, I think I am going to rest the legs as much as I can and just alternate days between riding and running, doing little volume and little intensity. No sense starting the season already burned out and beat up, right?
Besides, I think I have done enough this year.
Wanna hear some totals?
Swim: around 250,000 yards
Bike: just shy of 3,500 miles (will hit this next week)
Run: around 925 miles
- Half Ironman: 4
- Sprimpics: 1
- 25K: 1
- Half Marathons: 2 (well, 6 if you count the ones from the HIM)
- 15K: 1
- 10K: 1
- 5 Milers: 2
- 4 Miler: 1
- Slept in: Twice I think?
- Races in 4 different states
- and a BUNCH of PR's!!!
Now I must do one final transition of the year from large volumes of swim, bike, and run to large volumes of food and wine.
I shall call this, T3.
Have a wonderful Holiday and New Year's everyone!
