As you might have seen before, my plan, like most plans, should stair step up in intensity each week with three recovery periods in between. The chart shows hours of training on the left and weeks 1 through 20 on the bottom.

The odd thing is that I'm strangely at peace with the whole thing. The thought of doing a full 140.6 Ironman really doesn't seem that daunting. I have had two years to forget about the pain from my last effort. I suppose it really depends upon how much I want to push myself to the edge. Too much effort and I might fall off a cliff before the finish line, too little effort and I might have regrets, just the right amount and I should have energy to cheer on my fellow competitors long into the night. Maybe I'll get some good pictures too.
