I've been a self-coached athlete for the past 16 years, and it has worked out well because I didn't have too lofty of goals. I'm now thinking my goal of breaking a 10-hour ironman and/or earning a Kona slot is/are quite lofty. I still want to coach myself, but right now, I could use some feedback. As I stated in my last post, I feel like I'm doing the homework but I'm still failing the test. Well, it dawned on me that maybe I'm not doing the right homework problems. Or maybe I'm doing too much homework, and not taking enough down-time to absorb the information. Okay, no more speaking in metaphors. My gut instinct tells me I'm just having a case of bad luck, and to soldier on with my plan. However, I've had several teammates tell me I'm training too much, and after a couple of rounds of this, I'm starting to vacillate. I need feedback. There are so many of you training for ironmans(men?), how this does compare to your training? The pictures are of my final build-up and taper for IM CDA. Thoughts? Don't worry, I will take all feedback with a grain of salt.
