Just 2000m easy swimming and some core this morning. That's it!
It's been quite the training so far. It's Ironman training, but with a lot of dirt. I have to excel at both triathlon and ultrarunning this year, so I have to keep the training on a knife-edge balance to make sure I get in both elements.
And light activity days like this one are absolutely necessary. It's not just physical recovery, but a mental one too. I can basically catch up on other stuff while I look at where I go with my training in the future. It's definitely a day to refocus and to plan for the future.
With 9 weeks left till the first big race, the NJ Marathon, every day is critical now, even if I'm not training hard for it.
