How do I feel today? I'm still tired but I'm sleeping great. I got another good night of sleep. I need to keep doing this and I am feeling better. My right foot is a little sore from yesterday's run but other than that I feel fine. Today I am planning on taking the bike out this evening for a ride. Probably an hour or so, planning to keep it short and no hammerfest.

I did an hour on the trainer tonight. I wanted to ride outdoors but finished up work late today so I had to settle for the trainer. Man I totally have nothing in tank. I just kept it easy for the hour. The funny thing is I thought I was going faster then I really was then I look at the numbers and I'm like man they totally suck lol. It's to be expected, I'm just so tired, I sleep great and wake up tired in the afternoon I could really use a nap lol. I guess I just roll with it for now not much I can do other then make sure I get my rest and keep the workouts easy for now.

Looks like I will be getting a MTN bike. The finance commitee (my wife) has approved so I'll do my homework and probably go down to the LBS and check them out next week. Damn you Wynn! Peer pressure! It'll be good for me though and should help with the overall fitness and improve my bike fitness.

How do I feel today? I'm still tired and it is hard to explain. My body feels fine but I am just so tired in the mornings and in the afternoon I just feel like taking a nap. It doesn't matter how long I sleep I am just feeling tired. Surely this must be from all the IM training and the IM itself. Hopefully this passes soon enough. Luna also got up at abut 3:45 am crying and whining this morning. She did the same thing when we put her in for the night last night. I don't know what's up with her. She just wasn't well behaved at all yesterday.

Today I am going to attempt my first run since doing the IM. That weather is nice and cool so it should make for a great run this evening. I'm not sure how long I'm going to run. I am thinking of just trying to get an hour in for today. Something around 6 miles or so. I'll see how I am feeling and will take it from there.

I ran 5 miles this evening and I struggle mightly. I was fine for the first loop which is about 2.2.5 miles. I probably went out a little faster then I should have and I really paid for it on the second loop. I just didn't have any energy. I was not running hard or fast but I had nothing in the tank. It really hit home that even 9 days after the IM that I am still recovering. To be honest the IM run was easier then this run tonight. I may have to keep the runs short for now.

How do I feel today? I'm tired this morning but I did sleep great last night and got 8.5 hours of sleep. The good thing is I did not over extend myself at IMWI and I should be able to bounce back and recovery quicker because of that. I'm sure I'll be feeling like this all week but I plan on getting as much sleep as I can.

Today I would like to head to the pool for an hour and just get a nice easy swim in, maybe do an easy 2000 meter swim. I really want to get back in the water and would have liked to yesterday but I'm not complaining I am not going to push myself. I just want to maintain my fitness for the next few months before I start up the IMMT training.

I got two walks in with Luna and I went swimming for the first time since my brutal traumatizing swim at IMWI lol. I want to say it was fun but swimming is just not fun for me. It was good to get back in the water and swim. I'm not a fan of the pool but it was pretty empty this evening so I had a lane to myself and I just swam. I tried to just keep it easy and do my thing. I got almost an hour in which was good for me.

Dirk got into IMWI and general entry sold out in record time. This race is getting very popular. Glad he got in and with that we now have Brenda, JoAnne and Dirk officially in for next year. That will be at least 4 Junkies doing an Ironman next year. That is awesome!

How do I feel today? Tired but I slept great last night. I'm up early to head to Wildwood lake for a swim and a bike ride with Bobby. My first workout since Ironman Wisconsin. After that I'm looking to chill and drink beer while I watch the NFL games. GO COWBOYS!

No swim today, Bobby and I agreed to take a pass on that and I was fine with that. I'll hit the pool tomorrow. We had a great bike ride. I couldn't believe how well I rode today. I was able to keep pace with Bobby the whole ride. Granted Bobby still working his way back to getting in shape and regaining his fitness he can still ride. What I thought was going to be an easy ride really wasn't we were pushing the pace for most of the ride.

I felt very good but I did have 6 days off and I came out of the Ironman in very good shape. I had fun today and I'm glad Bobby pushed the pace, my fitness level is high right now but I have to take it easy and get some rest as well. Maybe I'll do the Cedar Beach sprint tri in October. Bobby and I talked about it today. If he's in I'll probably do it.

How do I feel today? I feel great this morning. I finally feel well rested and I got a great night of sleep. I got up early though becuase my dog Luna does not believe in sleeping in! I talk her out and man was it chilly out there. I took her for a walk it is a beautiful morning. I think I will probably take her down by the marina for a lunch time walk today.

As far as training goes I'm not doing anything today. I will clean my bike up and I will try and fix my front left shifter. I am planning to swim at the lake tomorrow morning at 8:30 am with Bobby and then we will do a bike ride. I am looking forward to getting some activity in tomorrow. I think taking the week off was a smart thing to do. For the next two months I will probably just do unstructured workouts and focus on my swimming.

The training for IMMT will begin in November. I need a few months of down time before I get started there however I will be working out and not slacking off.

How do I feel today? I'm still tired. I drank way too many beers last night as well LOL, trying to make up for what I missed this year LOL. I wanted to swim today and had a chance to get to Wildwood at 11:30 am swim but I was too tired to do it. I would have if I'd not drank so much but that Blue Moon seasonal 12 pack is freakin awesome. I love the Rounders brew that stuff is da bomb!

No beer today though I have to go do some food shopping and I want to work on my bike. It needs to be cleaned up after the Ironman and I need to see if I can fixed my left shifter for my front ring that popped out of the aero bar. If I can't I need to take it to the LBS tomorrow. I really wanted to try and get a ride in tomorrow.

Other than that I wanted to finish up my lessons learned doc for Brenda, JoAnne and Dirk today. I need to get that done while all the info is fresh in my mind. So probably no work out again today. I am hoping to ride tomorrow and swim on Sunday.

How do I feel today? Not bad, I'm still a little sore and I'm tired. I need to get more sleep. I drank too many beers last night and went to bed way too late since I needed to get up early and get my daughter to work.

I didn't really do much so far today. I took Luna for a walk and finally got the yard mowed. It needed to be done. I was going to swim tonight but I'll probably pass and go pick my daughter up from the train station. I'll see if I can get someone to swim with me tomorrow at the lake.

I just have been catching up. I finished my race report for IMWI and I have been just relaxing and reading everyone else's RR's from IMWI and the from all the Junkies who raced this past weekend. I wanted to get my lessons learned write up done and share that with Brenda, JoAnne and Dirk since they're going to be taking the same journey I did next year for IMWI. Hopefully it will be helpful.
