Am) 7 miles average HR 141. I was needing to push a little more than I wanted in order to keep my HR above 140. My first race isn't until June (despite assumptions about a 5k this weekend) and I feel already that I am too far ahead of schedule. My 'aerobic' fitness comes back in a matter of weeks and I always think I need 24 of them (because for Ironman you do). I almost should take another run break and just bike or else I'll burn out by May.
My schedule so far:
Mt Evans hill climb (run) June 18th
Silver Rush 50 mile bike Saturday July 16th
Silver Rush 50 mile run Sunday July 17th
Leadville 100 bike August 13th dependent on lottery
Either Pikes Ascent (I had a dismal 2:41 marathon in 2008 that will qualify me) or Leadville 100 run August 20th
Fall marathon. Probably Denver which is still my PR of 2:30:45 after walking with hypothermia.
