It's amazing how much things can fall behind when focusing on Ironman and having a vacation. Work has been incredibly busy since I have gotten back and my feet finally after two weeks fit into shoes again. I ended up losing a couple of toenails and the right foot's toebox was a mess. I got in a short swim last Saturday and I think I will get a run in today.
I am pretty sure I won't do an Ironman this next year - well if I go sub 4:40 at Sylvan I probably will because that means I have a shot at Kona. The bike continues to be my weak link given that I was 700+ in placement on the bike with a 440 place swim and a 310 place run. In fact another 13 minutes on the run (which I know is doable) I would have been 180 ish place. My preliminary race plans for next year include a real attempt at a career best 10K and a push to race a faster half-ironman maybe going after a 70.3 World Championship Qualification.
