Of course I came to my senses eventually. I do acknowledge that you need to train in order to race well. And I do like to train! (perhaps not quite as much as racing, but that's okay :). So train I will. Dirk gave me one last "vacation" week this week (which of course does still involve training, but all easy training) because come Monday 8/27, I'll have exactly 12 weeks until Ironman Arizona. Bring on the miles baby! Ironman Round #2 here we come!
So it's pretty darn good timing that I found this waiting on the doorstep when I got back from my swim this morning:
|Ordered on Monday, arrived on Thursday - now THAT'S good service!|
PS In case you are looking for a great article about nutrition, pro triathlete Jesse Thomas wrote an excellect one for Triathlete Magazine. Jesse pretty much sums up my entire philosphy on nutrition in few short paragraphs. And he says it much better than I ever could because he's really funny. :) Balance and consistency are so key folks. Trust me, at this point, I've seen it all and I've done it all myself. Aim for that B+ because aiming for the A+ all the time almost always ends in disaster!
