Life After Ironman
It's been almost 1 month since Ironman - where has the time gone? I took the week after Ironman off but then resumed some workouts the week we got back. As expected, I didn't feel great. But, I persevered. I wanted to get *some* workouts in before I had surgery as I didn't know how long I'd be off. The surgery went well and I took the week off after the surgery (didn't have a choice as I was in a lot of pain) but I started to get restless earlier on this week when I started to feel better. I wanted to *do* something but I couldn't. Gary didn't want me to push it even though I was feeling better. So, I waited. Tomorrow I will ride my bike for the first time since July 27th. It's funny how much I actually missed being able to just go for a run or get on my bike and ride when I wanted to. I think it's going to be hard to get up tomorrow but I'm actually looking forward to it. I've got a full week of workouts scheduled this week but I will listen to my body to see how I manage. Any pain and I'll stop. I've got to start somewhere and "easy" is the best place at this point.
