Ironman... the long and winding road

Bill of Health

So last week, I saw the Doctor and she told me that I am able to return to work the begininng of January. I now have 3 months to finish training hahaha!! Not sure that I will make it, there is 98 days and counting. I think that this week I will be giving my 2 week notice at work and then I am going to devote the time that I have left to getting the job done!


Time is flying and I am not having fun!!

Recetly this seems to be the trend of me not posting!

I have greatly considered not making the Ironman this year, due to my illness that I have almost gotten over. My time is flying and I am not having fun!! I feel like my opportunity to do better this year is slowly drifting away. Being sick has taken almost 3 months out of my training and I think to myself "will I make it??" The answer inside of me is really unsure and unknowing.

I told my sister yesterday that I did not think that I would compete this year due to everything. She brought to my attention that I am in better shape then I was last year (which I do not know how that is, because last year was emergency surgery and this is 3 months of illnesses)and I have about the same amount of training time left as I did then! I know that it is possible, I made it last year. I know that if I were to devote every waking hour outside my job and life (hehehe won't have one when I do this) that I will be able to cross that finish line. I know though without the help of my friends and family I won't...

time to go recruiting!!
