May Fitness Focus
Goal: With Ironman Lake Placid on the horizon, the next two months will be about the bike and getting in long bike rides. May should see me take the bike outdoors for proper hill workouts and long enough rides to get me to the point where I can easily knock off a few 100 milers in June. May should also see me return to open water, and May should see me notch marathon-a-month number 21. And since May is Merry, my goal is to keep it fun, keep the run mileage in check to avoid burnout, and keep the motivation high.
