Recovery Guilt

I am happy to report that I feel great. I did an easy 40 min spin on Tuesday and I swam this morning. My body feels great and nearly all of the soreness is gone. The real test will come tomorrow when I run with my training partner Mark.

I am trying hard to follow my plan of not having a plan for the next 3 weeks -- just having fun, doing whatever I want, etc. ... but it is just not me! I like the structure of having a plan to follow - plus I feel super guilty about not doing enough right now, even though I know the best thing I can do for myself and my training before starting my Ironman training is to fully recover.

I think that I am going to look into a Pilates class to try something different ...
