The answer is quite easy and understandable, start slowly, easy pace, listen at your body, and train after your feelings. Now your body needs rest. You were pushing hard maybe 8 months or even more, time to relax, with a good conscience!
Many triathletes in Denmark are getting ready for their big goal of the season Ironman Copenhagen. What is your goal? Is it just to get it done… or make your personal best or even to qualify to Hawaii??
or at least that is how I was thinking. I had to think like this. I understand that even Kona is not until 12 oct., every day from now on, is a day that ads to the result.
If it is a rest day, rest hard !
If it is a easy long day, go easy and go long.
And if it is a day where I climb my love/hate mountain….Passo Santa Barbara by the Lake of Garda, then it is a day, where my head is tested.
If then the brick run is a 500 altitude meter mountain run, in 34 degrees……then I know that I am getting Kona strong, in every way.
So my point is……every day is good for something. Being good for the family….being a good mother…..being a good collega….
and going one step closer to your raceday.
I took one more step today, and a good one. Tomorrow is an easy day. So I will try hard, to be easy. One more step.
Take your next step tomorrow, with a clear mind, that the step you take, is in the right direction.
See You out there,
