181 Days Until IM Canada
Workout: 30-minute run.
Today was Day 1 of my IMCA training schedule. I built the schedule based upon the "26 weeks to an Ironman" from Training Plans for Multisport Athletes. I used this schedule for IMCDA and it worked out well. However this time I've made some tweaks to add in more rest.
Last time around, there were very few rest days (I can remember four, only). I've learned that I require a lot more sleep than that plan allowed. So I've substituted a lot of the lifting days for complete rest. If that adds minutes onto my finish, who cares? My sanity and serenity are more important!
