Now that we're in our "Build Phase" of our Ironman training, the volume of our exercise is increasing. Our weekends pretty much revolve around our long bike and run - which our friends and family love. And we're waking up even earlier to get more time in at the pool. We're not even into the "Peak Phase," and I already feel how much this training and this race is becoming a big part of our lives. I love it - and wouldn't change it - but I also feel like when I sit down to write my daily post, I feel the need to share it here - even though it's not really the right platform. But it's my blog and I'm going to do it anyway. So - from now on, every Monday (our rest days) will have some sort of Ironman-related content in some way. It's my goal to start taking a camera on our runs - you wouldn't believe how beautiful some parts of Brooklyn can be at 6am or 8pm. The light is just spectacular. So anyway - this is what I'd like to do. We'll see how it goes. I hope you enjoy it.
