This is my first blog EVER. I am 33 years old. I have a husband and a 15 month little girl. In November of 2008 my husband, Jay, completed his first IRONMAN. In August 2009 I signed up to complete the Louisville IRONMAN in 2010.
My training: soon after having Jessica (March 2009) I began training for the Houston marathon. I was MUCH slower than I have been but at least I did it. In January 2010 I completed the marathon in 4 hours and 58 minutes. I was very proud b/c my recovery was so much better than it has been in years past. Soon after this Jay and I started training for the MS150 bike ride from Houston to Austin. We completed this in April. After the MS150 I began focusing on the IRONMAN.
This is a typical week:
Monday ~ off
Tuesday ~ sprint work out at 5AM with 2 girlfriends. We run 1.5 mile warm up and will do something like: 400m 200m repeat 4 times. Run 1.5 mile cool down
Tuesday ~ ride 14 mile at about 5PM
Wednesday ~ Swim about 2000 meters at 5AM
Thursday ~ run 6 miles with my girlfriends (mile 4 will be fast)
Friday ~ swim or something else
Saturday ~ LONG BIKE RIDE
Sunday ~ LONG RUN
Now, this is not always followed. I would say " i am doing my best" but i am not. hence the blog. hopefully this keeps me more honest.
SO what has happened this week:
Saturday 73 mile ride
Sunday 12 mile run
Tuesday DID NOT WORKOUT IN THE AM. ride 14/run 3 at about 5pm
Wesnesday DID NOT WORKOUT IN THE AM. sprint workout 6pm. run 10 minute warm up. 400 meters at 5K pace/90 second rest (8 times), 2 lap cool down
Thursday: 5.2 mile run @ 5AM
