Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs Lake: Crash Prep day 19 of 24

Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs Lake: Crash Prep day 19 of 24

So we go into the final week of my last minute prep for the Ironman 70.3 Buffalo Springs Lake triathlon in Lubbock, TX.

Things have been a bit rocky with jumping the training up way beyond the 10% rule!  But I adapted well as I feel I was a little more rested from taking so much time off, my body accepted the training as best it could.

mentally it was a challenge because I hadn’t realized just how much it really took to get in the volume I had been getting in when I normally trained for a full.  This past week topped out at about 16.5 -17 hours not including this Sunday ( so last Sunday to Saturday.  I have been tired most of the time and still can’t seem to break the habit of staying up too late so my sleep is again poor for what I am doing. It is not like I can’t fall asleep, I just get into projects on the computer and fall asleep right there.

So below is the video update since last posting Thur on day 15. I have to head out and mow the lawn now.
