I've been training very hard for Ironman Florida on 11/7, but I have had flu-like symptoms all week. I haven't trained since Monday and I may not be able to train much this weekend based on how I feel. Prior to this week, I had worked up to 80 mile bike/60 minute run bricks, 20 mile runs, and 2 mile open water swims. It seems like this is a crucial training period being that I'm almost 8 weeks out from the race? I guess I'm being paranoid and I'm asking Ironman veterans to tell me that a week off doesn't mean I have to take a knee on the race. In the back of my mind, I suppose I realize that I have time to recover from this week off. I would just like to hear you guys say it.
Thanks in advance for the support.
