100 days from now is the start of the inaugural race of Ironman Texas.
Somehow it seems close and far away at the same time! While I have done a lot of training recently, the majority of my training plan still lies ahead of me. I have learned a few lessons in recent weeks about fitting in workouts and handling longer distances, and while it has been hard work I have also had good times with my coach and training group.
It seems my biggest issue right now, at least as far as things that I did not consider potential problems up front, has been the recent cold weather. Tonight's 12 miles might be run on the gym treadmill just to avoid weather in the mid-20's. However, before long we will be plenty warm enough for most people so I will continue to make the best of it--although I seem to have gotten less tolerant of the cold in the last year.
Given normal weather patterns for southern Texas in late May, I may just be wishing for cooler weather in 100 days!
