A different way to work the last 30km of the Ironman bike

-Wake up at 5:30 and go for a swim. 
-Get out of the water at 7:05 TOPS, dry your body a get dressed to be inside the car at 7:15, thats enough to get to the work place meet at 7:30. 
-Drive 300km from lisbon to lagos for a meeting 
-Drive 120 km in algarve to check work fronts
-Have a Snack
-Drive 300km back to lisbon at 100km/h due to eavy rain
-Arrive home at 8PM and have dinner and at 8:20 go for a trainer workout (currently warming up)

I bet that the feeling of not wanting to pedal anymore is quite similar to the last 30 km of the ironman bike ;)

the good: 
-Had only 10 min of traffic time.
- I will have 10 min to shower before my regular bed time ;)

60 min Run


Thats the long run at the moment, ive been very careful with this, im doing Phisioteray 4 times per week witch is helping getting rid of this stubborn injury. BUT although i have been running 30-60 min doent mean that im ok, its still there but getting slowly better. I have been using my weekends to log some decent kms on the bike as during the week i cant do more than 1:30 on the trainer and therapy steals a big chunk of avaliable time. To add to my lack of time ive been forcing a bit of Gym work (yuck).

Im back to wheel building, well ate least one, that took me like 2 weeks to build wasting like 10-15 per day to build a wheel that i already tested (liked it). I built it using the F3SCDS Technology witch increased the stiffness by around 89% (i tightened the spokes ;)).

All good and moving in the right direction.
