Holy Moly.....we will be racing in the 2015 Ironman World Championship in 41 days!!
As athletes, we are constantly developing, learning, gaining skills and improving. Year after year, we get stronger, faster, more efficient or smarter.
But this is not the time for me get greedy - wanting every workout to be perfect or better than the previous day.
For the next 6 weeks - all I need my body to do is to stay healthy and I will be ready to race!
And most of all, I want to keep having fun.
There's no good in taking risks 3-6 weeks out from race day because many times, these risks don't pay off. The fear-based training doesn't make for better race day performances. Being "in the moment" to get a workout checked-off for self validation may give you confidence but it isn't necessary in the big picture.
Remember that you are bringing months of fitness to your upcoming Ironman race...not one or two epic completed, haphazard workouts.
Stay focused, stay smart and keep having fun.
