When I looked at my watch this morning the display showed "150 Kona". 150 days is roughly 6 months but when you train for an IM before you now it 6 months is gone. I am slowly getting into my usual routine and although my current program allows for 11 workouts a week from the 25th of May I will be back at 14 session a week, 2 per day 7 days a week and if you count a brick session as two some weeks will have 15 workouts.
For the week so far I haven't missed any workouts and I am also sticking to the whole workout per session, no cutting short. It is amazing how quickly one body can adapt. Two weeks ago I was so out of shape after the 4 week lay off after IMSA and now I can already feel how everything is coming back. Spoke to Jacques today and we discussed the pool's temperature at the gym, which is by the way down again to 18c. But when you start t swim it is sooo cold but after a few laps your body adapts and you don't feel that intense cold anymore.
I also received a qualification certificate from the IM company stating that I did qualify for IM Worlds. That was a real surprise to receive the certificate.
