We have entered Phase 2 of Ironman Training. Speed is the focus. If this morning’s workout is any indication it is going to be a tough one.
I have finally gotten used to the gym and lifting heavier and heavier weights. Finally making some strength gains. I have always been envious of the ripped arms of some friends and their tight abs. Alas none of those have appeared but I can now push, press, deadlift and squat more than I could at the start. Also even started enjoying the challenge of it all.
But swim, bike, run I come. Here we go to add back in some speed but for the last phase of endurance.
