17 down, 1 to go.

Holy shit. One week left. I said it last week...I have spent a lot of time thinking about how it would feel to be at this point in our training. I certainly didn't expect to be sitting here with an injury. Not the one I have anyway. I guess I could have imagined an overuse injury but not an injury caused be an accident. It just never occurred to me.

We are one week out from Ironman. Its been 11 days since my accident. I am considerably better than I was, but still have a ways to go. I'll talk about that in a different post. The good news is that I ran twice this week and took a spin class. My heart rate was pretty high, meaning my body is still dealing with the injury. But I got moving and that felt good.

Here's the recap, quite a change from previous weeks of 15 hours of training! Hey, its the taper, right?
Sunday: rest
Monday: rest
Tuesday: rest
Wednesday: 40 min run
Thursday: 60 min spin
Friday: 40 min run
Saturday: rest

Swim: 0 hours
Bike: 1 hours
Run: 1 hour and 20 minutes
Total: 2 hours and 20 minutes

Next week at this time will be the day before Ironman. We'll be checking in our bikes and making the final preparation. Can't wait.
