Besides being the name for a rather odd animal, sloth is the old English word for being, well, slow.

And I am slow. I finally analysed my training logs from what I now call “last” year, by which I mean the year leading up Ironman Wisconsin on September 9. To do the bike leg in 7:30 requires an average speed of 14.9 mi/h. In not one of my on-the-road-rides last year did I achieve that as an average. An under-the-cutoff ride was probably never possible. And after this morning’s painful trainer work-out I can see that speed, the antonym to sloth, must be my goal.
