Thirty-Four Weeks to Ironman

It is now thirty-five weeks until the Ironman 70.3 Miami triathlon.  It continues to be cold here in Orlando and my training is suffering.  Mostly it suffered this week because I ran the Mardi Gras Rock ‘n Roll Marathon on Sunday.  It took me until Wednesday to fully recover from that.

Speaking of marathons,  I just signed up for the Coeur D’Alene Marathon on 29 May.  I’m not sure why I keep signing up for more marathons when I’m supposed to be training for a half ironman, but I do.  In just two weeks, I will be running yet another marathon – the Shamrock Marathon in Virginia Beach, VA.

My new bike is still not here.  It’s been nearly 2.5 weeks since I returned it.  They tell me that they are waiting for UPS to pay their claim.  It should have been paid by now.  I am getting ancy.

Here are the stats for this week:

Swimming:  0 meters

Bicycling:  45 minutes on indoor trainer – 6×1 min intervals at 100+ rpm included

Running:  26.2 miles (1 marathon)


I live in Orlando, Florida and participate in marathons and triathlons.
