A Long Hard Slog

49 miles today.  I didn't even hit 50 miles, never mind my target 60 miles.  It's not surprising that the training and my job are starting to weigh heavy on my energy levels.  By the time we got to Ashford in the Water yesterday I had had enough.

We went to the Monsal Dale coffee shop for tea and cake which at least cheered me up enough to ride home.

Results when we got in showed that I spent only 12 of the 49 miles in my training zone.  The rest, apparently, was a recovery ride.

And today I am supposed to run... with my knackered foot... and I haven't even thought about the 2.7km swim.  I'm just not sure I'm going to make this ironman thing.
