Quote of the day

If you can drive there, you can bike there.
If you can bike there, you can run there…

Made this one up myself :). Every now and then my sis will tuant me, “why take the car when you can run there…”…hmm don’t tempt me 🙂

I have been re-reading Gordo’s and other’s articles on Ironman training. I reflected on what I did well last season (through half educate guess and half fluke) and things I need to work on. To say the least, I am very happy with last season. I have trained close to Ironman volume and have learnt a great deal on training itself. I did not have any *major* injury and completed HIM as planned.

The perspective that guide me last year will need to be modify as I become more in tune to my body and how it responded to stress (phyiscal, mental and emotional). More on that later….

Ironman Florida is this Sat. Quite excited. Even though I am not part of it, there are a number of tri bloggers participating this race. A large number of them are first timers too.

I put their bib number beside their name so I can track them on Ironmanlive.com on race day 🙂
Good luck guys. It will be a fulfill day under the sun.

I hope I didn’t forget anyone.

  • ooh! Can’t wait to hear what your thoughts are on how your body reacts to stress. I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately as well – it’s just inevitable when you’re anticipating the possible struggles of the upcoming season I guess.

  • Wow Cliff – you are multi-talented – now you are creating memorable quotes….

    Thanks for the heads up on the Ironman Triathletes!
