And on the Fourth Week We Rested

Rest week is officially over (a point emphasized by today being a two-workout-day) and so is the Base Phase of our training. Today marks the start of the Build/Strength Phase of Ironman training. After reading The Triathlete's Training Bible I have a rough idea of what that means but I'm eager to see how it translates into Coach's prescribed workouts.  All I can assume is that if I thought I was training a lot before, I ain't seen nothin' yet.

I'm excited and nervous for the next step in my progression as a triathlete. I'll be going where I've never gone before (rides longer than 60 miles and runs longer than 14 miles) just as I will in Arizona.  Ironman training is more than just a physical endeavor, it is a test of determination and resolve, and I will prevail.
