  • I slept on my neck weird and was in a ton of pain the first week.  I was icing and taking ibuprofen and really not getting any relief - sitting at my desk and trying to look at my computer did not help. I ended up going to the chiropractor and getting STIM on it and it finally loosened up. 
  • The fatigue build up is real.  I am TIRED! 
  • During my 13 mile long run where my legs felt like garbage and I really wanted to throw in the towel at like mile 4, that the run was a metaphor for Ironman and Ironman training - sometimes you feel like crap but you just keep going because the other option is quitting.
