#129 Fat Lazy Slob Report

Enough with the race reports…here’s a fat lazy slob report.

Since Ironman I’ve run twice, biked twice & swam a big fat zero times! Here are some other things I’ve been able to avoid since Ironman:

— I’ve worn no spandex

— Haven’t shaved anything out of the ordinary (face being ordinary)

— Ingested any supplements or products with names like GU

— Read any triathlon related forums

— Experienced a rash from 100+ mile bike rides

For the first post-race month I was ok with this, now that were nearing two months post-race I’m starting to feel a little bad about it. All the free time has been nice but not having something to work toward or a bit of structure is getting to me. Looking back its hard to believe that I was able to stay motivated day after day to train.

I was kicking around the possibility of the Seattle marathon in November but I’m starting to think that’s not really all that great of an idea. I think between now and the end of the year I’ll stick with a “slightly structured” training regiment. Coach says this is a pretty normal feeling and once my body’s ready I’ll be ready to kick it into gear again. However I do need to get my ass back in the pool, I don’t want to start that again at ground zero. Possibly the Whidbey Island marathon, any takers?

Congratulations to Sitter, I’ve heard rumor that she PR’ed at the NikeĀ  Women’s Half Marathon last weekend in San Francisco.
