7 Weeks to go to UK ironman, 8 Weeks to SpainCycle
Had a lift from Sheffield down to Derby and cycled to Shrewsbury. Torrential rain all the way - glad I had a very bright back light.
So i've clocked up a few miles now with the saddle as far forward as it'll go. It's been surprisingly good. I still have the same asymmetrical issues but it's more comfortable.
Mentally i'm in the dark a bit as i'm not following the same training regimen;
The volume is lower
The intensity is higher
There is more recovery and more doubt!
I've got to back up one ironman with another a week later - i'm going to have to be really disciplined and go slowly for the UK one, I fully expect to walk a significant portion of the marathon.
More than likely I will be learning a lot!
