Oh so true, Ironman. Oh so true.
How’s Ironman March going for everyone? Keeping up with the program? I sure hope so! I’m doing really well with the swimming and running (I only have a mile to go and I’m done with my runs for the month!), but it’s hard to stay focused on the bike. Story of my triathlon life, though. Nothing new…
Last night, I was so grateful that I arranged a workout date with my friend Brandi. I definitely would’ve blown off my swim otherwise. Brandi is faster than I am in the water, and she definitely motivates me to keep up (because, you know, if we are swimming next to each other, we are definitely racing). After our workout (we did 1000 yards), we headed over to the gym’s childcare, grabbed our kiddos, and went back to the pool for some more relaxed splashing time. Henry loved it. <3
So, speaking of Ironman March, here are two workouts inspired by the month-long ‘race.’ The treadmill workout is designed for intermediate runners who can comfortably maintain a 10-minute/mile pace – but you can always switch up the speeds to make it more your pace.
And the swim workout below is 500 yards, but you can always repeat the three intervals to make it a grand total of 800.
The running is fine, and I’m having a lot of fun with the biking. Starting doing spinning and that has been a lot of fun. I can find someone who goes a LITTLE bit harder then me and try beating them. Using muscles I didn’t expect to use, and that’s great. And I love that I can throw my outfit on and head out the door and run into the spinning studio and then run back home. EZ.
Swimming is the thing that’s getting me, and it’s the prep and towels and wet hair and alla that …
