Last week I took it easy to recover from Ironman Chattanooga. I feel more or less normal this week and am getting back into a training routine but not going full gas yet. I’m calling it a transition week. Would I feel this normal if I had run faster at Chattanooga? Probably not. The upside of blowing up is you’re not as beat up. Unrelated, the weather here has taken a turn and it’s gotten pretty brisk outside. I’m anticipating quite a bit of trainer riding preparing for Ironman Arizona.

Hedge is Not Ovulating...

En-Fuego.gifBy Dan Hedgecock (danhedgecock.com)

I am currently “en fuego” — which literally translates to “fire” or “on fire” or “in fire” or something like that.
