You'll never guess what i'm doing this year. It was all a part of a discussion to help my husband reach his weight loss goal. I am training for a 1/2 ironman. Yeah that's right. I have been training for only a month. The ironman and the 1/2 ironman are in June. I never had this on my radar screen for training. I was going to do some 10k's a few more 5ks a 1/2 marathon, and a 10mile. All running. Well i will do the 5k's and the 10 mile But mixed in there i'll be doing the 1/2 ironman. Oh forgot to mention i'm doing 2 of them. Yes two. The other one is in Sept. A very good friend of mine who has been doing tri's and has done an ironman is training my husband and I. I have a bike, and i've learned to use a vassa swim machine. My training schedule is pulled together now for the weather to warm up so i can ride outside.
This is going to be a journey like none I have ever done. I know what to expect from running but combining the two will be interesting. A brand new journey that i'll be updating a lot before the big day. I just wanted to share. This is as much scary as it is intimidating, as much as it is fun. Fun for now, i'll give you my opinion once i get outside on my bike. LOL
Oh what challenge....
Wow, Christine, that is fantastic! Congrats for making your commitment public. Now we can help support you in your journey to 70.3! Do you have a training plan yet? Check out the Beginning half-ironman distance Triathlon: 6 to 10.5 hrs/wk I think you're going to do great. With Daylight Saving just around the corner, you'll be outside before you know it.
Thanks. Yes i have a training plan and am doing well to keep on track with it. I know that i'm going to enjoy being outside a lot once it become warmer. I do all my training in the day/morning so it's been pretty decent. It'll be interesting as i go along. Thanks for your support, the journey has just begun.
