So I completed my hours for last week

Bike: 113 Miles - 6:35:00
Run: 25.6 Miles - 4:00:00

Total: 14:35:00

This week I have 17:30 scheduled. It's Wednesday and I've completed 6.5 Hours.

My goals for the week are:

Swim: 3 Hours (2 done)
Bike: 10 Hours (I have a century ride scheduled with my team later this week) (3:05 done)
Run: 4.5 Hours (1:30 done)

I am also having surgery on Friday but it's not too major so hopefully it won't get in the way of being able to ride 100 miles on saturday ha ha.

Start Today

My earnest ironman training starts today. I am on an annual training plan (hereinafter ATP) which will afford me the flexibility to fit my workouts in when I can with school and work.

So far I'm off to a good start. After 1.5 years of saying I would, I joined a 7 AM masters swim group at my school and swam this morning at 7:05 (I was late due to a flat tire on the way in). I have really neglected my swimming in the last month so I was psyched that I was bringing in my 100s (yards) comfortably between 1:20 and 1:25.

Anyway, this week's goals:

ATP: 9:55
Swim: ~3 hours
Run: ~3.5 hours
Bike: ~3.5 hours
(lift twice if I can, I need to find out from my coach if this factors into my ATP hours or not)

The swimming will definitely be the most challenging since I hate getting up early but I'm really glad that I paid my money because I know that I will make myself go to anything I have paid for.

Training in Paradise

I just got back from my trip to Tahiti with my family and I wanted to share a few of the pictures, mostly to prove to any naysayers that I did, in fact, train while I was in 90+ degree tropical heat.
