Ironman training re-start

Posted Jan 07 2009 3:18pm
Today was the day it officially re-started! Not an enormous long-distance workout for starting, just a modest speed workout on the track and a half-hour of upper body freeweights and core work in the living room. But it's a start.

I've got the week mapped out for week 3 of 24 weeks of iron-distance training, which will end up at the beginning of summer (when I was planning to do Eagleman Aqua Velo, which has been dropped from the schedule in favor of a vacation at the beach). I still need to find a fun event or two in early June to cap off my spring training.

Key workouts planned for this week are a 120-min bike (probably on the trainer inside tomorrow), a 70-minute run, a 60-90 min swim and a 70 min bike/20 min run brick.

Then over the summer the plan is to go to maintenance training while the girls are out of school and free time is more limited; then crank up the volume again 10-12 weeks out from Beach 2 Battleship on November 7th. Battleship or bust!

Oh yeah, here's my current tentative event schedule, subject to additions when I find some other fun events (mostly for summer/fall) that fit in well:
  • RD Seminar: 08 Feb 09
  • B&A Half Marathon: 01 Mar 09
  • Disney Princess 5k: 07 Mar 09
  • Disney Princess Half Marathon: 08 Mar 09
  • National Half Marathon: 21 Mar 09
  • Dorchester YMCA half?: 11 Apr 09
  • Oxford Day 10k?: 26 Apr 09
  • Potomac Marathon: 03 May 09
  • Columbia Triathlon: 17 May 09
  • Chesapeakeman Aqua Velo: 26 Sep 09
  • B2B iron distance tri: 07 Nov 09
