The solution is to take a quick look at what I need to do over the next hundred days without getting too involved in the detail. Then do it. So here it is:
Ensure I complete my key workouts which include:
- Long ride (150-240km)
- Long run (2:45-3:30)
- Long swim (3000-6000m)
- SBR Combo (6-8 hours)
To complete these I need to be on top of the other tasks of life, including: house work, garden, shopping, cooking, bike maintenance. To be on top of these I have to do some each day (and not leave it until the last minute). This means thinking ahead. Doing things like planning my meals for when I'm on shift at work and making sure I have food in the cupboards before I need it.
During this time, if I get into the swing of things properly, then I will probably feel like a robot. But to me, that is part of the challenge of Ironman. The hard part is being consistent in training. Race day could almost be considered easy in comparison.
