My 1/2 Ironman training...


So I've been putting in the miles quite a bit lately... Last week I think Crystelle figured we ran 30 miles? I biked I think 85 miles? And probably swam a couple miles...swimming seems to be my least favorite part of the training stuff. Probably because I suck the most at it! Biking is becoming so much fun that it's becoming one of my favorite ones hence me adding some pics of me and Semaj (my bike).



So I'm leaving for 10 days to go to Europe, this is going to put a little damper on my training schedule, I hope the Europeans are ok with me running around their little streets in the morning! I'm still trying to figure out how to get my mace across the ocean so I can keep pappy J happy while I'm out there.

Some people might think I'm kind of crazy for PAYING to swim 1.2 miles, biking 56 miles, and then running 13.1 all in the same day...but really this is something that I want to prove to myself I CAN do. I decided that since I'm in a situation in life right now where I CAN afford to take the time to train for these things I might as well take advantage of it!

I don't know...there are some days I despise running, but yes, biking by far is the most fun! We CAN do it! But you know, it's pretty sick when you start feeling guilty when you only work out for an hour a day as opposed to two or three. I'm concerned I'll stop all physical activity come july and gain like 10 lbs :)

HEEEYYYY... so I had no idea you had a blog!! I love it! And I love that you're training for this- I wish so much that I could be closer to you and join in the fun. I love pushing myself physically and seeing an improvement. It increases self respect- and everybody needs more R-E-S-P-E-C-T, right?
