That pretty much sums up my half Ironman training right now. Stepping up my training has been a huge step up. There are so many things that have happened in the past week or so that would make for some great posts, but alas, it's hard to justify when I'm behind in my other writing. Triathlon has seeped into my work and play time and sapped all my energy. I will post more just as soon as I catch my breath and catch up a little on some deadlines.
