    I’m training for IMAZ Nov 17 and had a similar freakout. We got married August 10th and then spent a week on honeymoon and I panicked with the workouts I had missed (a ton!). However, just like your long ride, my ride today of 60 miles helped me realize that I do have a solid base and those 2 weeks didn’t hurt me as much as I thought it might. Now if only Fall would hurry up; I’d love to get some colder weather!!

    Great job! I can’t imagine the training required for an ironman and then your busy schedule on top of it! I Think you are doing an AMAZING Job!! Keep it up! I love following your training!

    I cannot even imaging spending 4+ hours on a bike. You my dear (along with everyone else that does that) rock!

    Do they ever cancel a race b/c the water is just too rough?

      Yup, this happens! I’ve heard of it happening several times with triathlons held in Lake Michigan – I live in the Midwest

      They do! Last year at Rev3 Florida 70.3 they cancelled the whole swim and did a running time trial or something like that to determine bike starting times.

    I applaud you!! You have every chance and excuse to give up, but you are staying positive and owning it! Stay with it, you’re doing awesome.

    Also, congrats on that bike ride. I would’ve gone a little nutso by myself for 5 hours. On a bike. Hehe you go girl!

    I never think I’ve done enough training for an IM, and I’ve made it through two now. I think a lot of folks do garbage mileage, especially during the weeks, and then go into race day injured. Not ideal.

    Just stay with your plan and check off the workouts one by one until race day.

    I’m currently marathon training and feel crazy! Did 20 miles Saturday…so I get the high intensity! Do you ever feel dead? I felt great sat and woke up Sunday like I had never slept a day in my life! Lol..lethargic…barely functioning…etc!!

    Insane week of workouts…congrats! Traveling can really throw a wrench in there, but it’s great to have a handle on exercise when you can!

    Freak out or not, this is an AMAZING week of IM training. I can’t believe how fast the Summer has gone by. Before you know it it’ll be race day, but I think we all know you’ll be fully prepared 😉

    Even though you spent 5 hours on the bike last week, your training just doesn’t seem anywhere close to any other fitness bloggers I’ve read who are also training for an IM. But, it sounds like you’re following your training plan, so that’s great! Have you thought about putting up the training plan from your book for each week and then comparing that to what you actually did? I loved seeing those comparisons when you were training in the past, plus it’s so fun to check items off a list!!

    I’m currently training for my 1st half marathon. Its tough. I’ve only really ran 5ks previously.
    This is way different.

    Good luck with your training. 🙂

    Wow, great job on keeping it up while traveling! That has to be hard!

    I was curious and nostalgic, so I peeked in at my training from the same time out and realized I was at 17 hours for about 8 weeks ago — crazy how much time we put into these things, isn’t it??

    My (unsolicited LOL) advice is to get in as many 100+ mile rides as you can. The bike makes both the bike AND the run!

      I’m hoping to get at least two 100+ mile rides in (though typing that scares me!). I just need to get through this last week of traveling and I’ll be hitting the high weeks too. Yikes!
