It has been over a month since my surgery january 5th. I have hit a few road blocks with this recovery. Infection has kicked my butt and I am done with this resting and recovering thing!
I've been eating out of control the last couple of weeks. I've identified it and am correcting it, but it was a feeling I thought was done with. Problem addressed and problem taken care of.
I dropped out of Ironman CDA in June. My Dr feels I might be able to get back on the training horse by April and that is simply not enough time to get my body ready.
With that I am setting and goal for Ironman Arizona: SUB 13 hours.
OK, for most people that is a silly goal and for hard core Ironman participants they will giggle and some even mock this goal, but most of those guys I can sit on or break them in half - (that was passive aggressive . . . or was it just aggressive?) But for me sub 13 hours will be a serious accomplishment.
Ironman FLorida was my ice breaker. My goal was to have fun and enjoy the day and I did just that finishing in 15:11.
I believe I can knock off 2 hours and I will.
I am going to race a couple times this year, but mostly focus on training.
I am looking for a half ironman in August in the South West . . . (SUGGESTIONS).
Whatever your goals are - Set them HIGH and go for it!
YOU CAN DO IT!
