IM Kona '16 - day 2

After a great night of sleeping, I woke up around 5:30am (Karel woke up at 5am) and started the day with a cup of coffee and a pre-workout snack of my pre-workout pancakes (I made a big batch to save some for after the workout). We headed out for our run around 7am, which felt like the middle of the morning as it was already warm. It wasn't too long before we were sweating along Ali'i drive.  Since my training is based on Karel's training right now, I modified his workout as follows: Karel: MS: 2 x 15 min Z3+ w/ 10 min EZ in between Total: 70 minutes Marni: MS 2x's: (3 x 5 min at strong effort w/ 30 sec walk in between) w/ 5 min EZ between rounds Total: 65 minutes Karel started the run a few minutes before me, as if he was running out of T2 on race day whereas I started the run from our condo to Hualalai to Ali'i drive. Karel eventually passed me as he was finishing up his easy section of the main set and I was about to start
