3rd Week Post Ironman

Still a bit off. Amazing that an Ironman could take so much out of you. Even marathons didn’t take that much out of me.
Swimming this morning still proved I am off the norm. Felt it in the lungs/chest on normal sprint sets whereas pre-Ironman I maintained speed and power. Running yesterday showed my HR on an easy jog to be 10-15 beats higher than normal.
It is interesting to note how much recovery an Ironman really takes. I definitely won’t push the body in this phase and let it recover back in its own time.
Thankfully, I am not putting on weight. I weighed 150 lbs. last night and was 151 lbs. on race morning. Looks like my metabolism is still up there.
