goSonja Posted November 11, 2013 Share Posted November 11, 2013 In two days I leave for Phoenix and in 6 days I race Ironman #11. I'm on day 7 and that's after a restart after day 4 (so kinda 11 days with one big Halloween candy snafu in the middle...hahhaha). My energy is good and my headaches are gone! This is super exciting for me. The idea of traveling to the race and eating Whole30 has gone from "scares me to death" to "I'm so going to rock this". My energy has actually been much better than expected during my training sessions. The slumps were mostly in the first 4 days, not the 4 days after the restart, those have actually been quite strong. I'm starting to feel really solid in my sessions, Ironman ready. One thing I think that has really helped is to EAT!!!! LOTS!!!! I have kept it Whole30, but I have EATEN LOTS OF FOOD. I go back for seconds on almost everything so I'm eating more than a plateful of food. Just an FYI on my experience for any other athletes out there trying to start this during a marathon or triathlon build. Ya gots to EAT! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
