IRONMAN 70.3 training is in full swing and I’m close to peaking (in 3 weeks or so). I feel things are coming together, although, the training methodology is much different than that of the past. Rather than have aerobic days/recovery days, I take full days off. The reason is because I’m too sore to even do a recovery run or whatever. Hope it all works out.
I swam 1,500 meters this week and biked 40 miles. Felt pretty good overall.
Yesterday – I felt really good and wanted to see if I have improved my fitness. Thus – I ran a 5K to test my time and by my surprise, I did improve and had a new PR post total gastrectomy. I think I could have still been about 30 seconds faster but I’m not mad. My future goal is sub 20 min 5K.
There is a possibility that I’ll do the Kiawah Olympic Triathlon on Sunday (one week from today). However, there is a hurricane coming our way so the race might get pushed back.
Stay tuned and please share my fundraising page as I’m trying to raise money for stomach cancer research: https://give.everydayhero.com/us/support-no-stomach-for-cancer-and-join-me-as-i-race-ironman
