And so that's part of it. If I had to pick another word? Exhausting. At the moment I'm training about 15 hours a week, which is 5 under my high water mark from last year...but it's a HARD 15 hours. I'm pretty much always tired. And this week is special! This week I'm doing my first race rehersal. A real IM worth training event for sure! Here is what the week looks like:
Monday - Swim 3K
Tuesday - Long Run
Wednesday - Bike 75 minutes with 2x20 @ 100% with 30 minute run brick
Thursday - Run 60 Minutes with speedword / Swim 3K
Friday - Run 45 Minutes
Saturday - Swim 1 Hour @ IM Pace / Bike 4 Hours @ IM Pace / Run 1 Hour Eazy
One more word? Ok sure, why not. Hungry! At this point I'm typically burning 1200+ calories a day training. I'm constantly hungry.
So, that's what it feels like to train for an Ironman. Consuming. Exhausting. Hungry. :) Oh yeah, and awesome!
