Saturday: Swim 3,200 yards, bike 13 miles
Sunday: Yoga, water run 55 minutes
Monday: Rest

I had another physical therapy appointment this morning and got the go-ahead to try an easy run tomorrow. Huzzah! I have to say all this water running has made for a nice, low-impact week, and I'm feeling pretty good as a result. (On the other hand, I'm pretty sick of the pool.)

I got to thinking that one strategy for getting through the Ironman—just to get to the finish line, mind you—would be to train really hard at biking and walking. That would most likely keep me from getting injured during the training, and if I had a fast enough bike split, there should theoretically be plenty of time to walk the marathon. (That's not what I'm going to do; it was just an interesting thought to comfort me when I couldn't run. But I am still planning on working some really long walks into training…)

So I'm desperately trying to finish up a big work project so I can have my life back. I keep telling myself that when I'm done with X, I will have some free time again, but unfortunately there always seems to be a new X on the horizon.
