Feeling studly,…without worthy cause yet

October 23rd, 2006

Had a long run today, upping the tempo throughout the run — ended with a satisfactory feeling like I just saved the world (enjoying a post workout hormone high).  It was a KEY workout coming off of tired legs from yesterday,…feeling this good and fast today was a real confidence booster again.  I’m not disillusioned though,…feeling studly has no great importance right now,…if I’m rocking in 2 weeks time in FLORIDA, only THEN will I be worthy of feeling studly.

I had a long treatment today from Dr. Paul — he worked out a tweak in my left achilles tendon with Ultrasound, Graston and Active Release Technique.  He also worked on both my rectus femoris muscles – a HUGELY influencial muscle for me to keep loose.  Heading back to the clinic now for some acupuncture to help with my breathing, and anything else that needs tweaking.

Sauna, then ice bath in the Bow River.

Then easy spin on the bike, and run.

Followed by another ice bath.

I’m doing everything right, so I believe I am – as the level of commitment required to perform in Ironman is certainly there.  Tara told me while we were freezing our legs off yesturday in the Bow river, “YOU BETTER *!?% WIN IN FLORIDA!”, man these are times I’ll never forget.
