I’m trying to actually… you know… achieve my goals for the month, which is a novel concept for me. I’m pretty good at making them, but not so good at sticking to them
One of my goals is to complete a week-long Ironman. I don’t remember where I saw this idea, but basically the goal is to do the Ironman distance over one week. I could never even dream of doing a full Ironman in one day (or a half Ironman… or any triathlon in a competitive setting) so spreading out the distance over one week seems a little more doable.
So, here’s the plan-
I have one week to run 26.2 miles, bike 112 miles and swim 2.4 miles. That sounds like a lot, huh? It makes me have a lot of respect for people that do it all at one time (too crazy to even consider.)
I’m not really looking forward to the swimming part. That requires me to put on a bathing suit (shudder) go out in public in said bathing suit (yikes) and actually swim. I find swimming to be ridiculously tiring! It seems so easy until you’re actually in the water.
I haven’t really run since my last half marathon, but I’m running a 5k tomorrow morning, so I guess we’ll see how my foot is feeling. My uncle is in town for the weekend, and when I asked him if he wanted to run the 5k with me he declared he would rather run a longer distance and that he was planning on doing the 10k. Overachiever
Anyone interested in doing the week-long Ironman with me? I’m starting on Sunday!
