A little tired today. My son is afraid to go to sleep, and it's going on several months now. Every night, in one way or another, since August, he wakes up several times throughout the night. Last night was no exception. It sure does wear on you after a few days, let alone a few months.

Swim today was fine. Did several 100s on the 1:40s, mostly coming in at 1:30-1:32, or so. I then did 4 x 100, a little harder this time, and with a little more rest, and was rolling in at 1:25. Hard to believe that swimming only 5 seconds faster was that much harder.

I have to improve my swim this winter.

BTW, I rechecked B2B results and I'm back at a 10:35 from a 10:38. I guess it took some time to go through their backup systems.

Feeling good, so decided to start doing some intervals on the stationary bike. Plan is to start doing intervals 3-4 times a week until I (re)start IM training in January. This week it'll be short workouts with some intensity, but not much.

Goal this winter is to get alot stronger on the bike and in the water.

Do not plan to pick up running for at least another week or two. Want to give the body a little bit of a running break.

Day off.

Feeling good.

For the offseason, planning to re-introduce myself to the trainer and trainer road. There will be tons of intervals and other work to increase bike strength and speed.

IMTX training starts January 1st. Really hope to build on the current fitness.

Really didn't expect to feel this good the week after an ironman.

Have started to develop a strategy for my next and will start preparing now to give me the best opportunity to improve on the last one.
