Ironman Training: 10/30 Weeks FINISHED!

I thought the 30 weeks would creep by, one dreadful week after another, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth! The time is flying by so quickly that I’m wishing it would slow down. I don’t feel ready to race an Ironman in only 20 weeks!!!!
Another really unexpected thing has happened. I’ve enjoyed almost every single minute of training! I thought I would find myself struggling for motivation, but each workout leaves me ready to crush the next one. There have only been a few moments when I have been riding or running along, and out of nowhere this thoughts pops into my head “what in the world am I doing?! I don't want to be on a bike! I don’t want to do an Ironman!!” It’s the weirdest thing! But as quick…
