Training for an IRONMAN requires a ridiculous number of workouts. Sometimes I bound out the door excited to do the workout. Other times…not so much. Here are the stages of me getting out the door to do the workouts in the latter category (starring Biscuit, ChadShannel Royale, Tank, Melody, and Bu.)
(Sometimes, when I open my coach’s notes at the beginning of the week and see how many workouts I have to do, and the duration of them, I just start laughing wildly.)
If I don’t do this today, I could do add it to tomorrow’s workouts. Swimming, running, strength, pilates, and biking in one day isn’t too much, right? How many showers can I take in one day? Actually, biking isn’t that important is it – it’s only 112 of the 140.6 miles. Maybe I could do half of it and then tell Steve that dingoes ate my bike.
