I am beginning to freak out!
On the Ironman training program I have been following this is the hardest week. It is 18 hours of training! But the hours are not why I am beginning to freak out. It is the hardest week, which means next week the hours drop down and taper begins. That also means that the swim I did last night was my last long swim. It means the run I do on Saturday is my last (and longest) long run and the ride I do on Sunday is my last opportunity for a long ride. That means that if I have not done enough it is too late! Holy crap I hope I have done enough? How do I know????
I guess the only thing I can do is trust the program. Hope it is enough to get me to the end comfortably. But here is the funny part. Last time I did not follow the program. I did not do nearly as much as I have done this time – so why the hell am I freaking out????? Why am I worried that I might not have done enough, when I have done a heck of a lot more than I did last time, when I still managed to finished and enjoy it?
Yikes – 33 days!!!
