My First Ironman
I decided to do the 2013 Ironman Louisville as my first long course race. This blog serves as my diary to capture training highlights and struggles along the way. Race day is 25 Aug 13.

Based on my experience at the half-iron distance and borrowing liberally from Don Fink's "Be Iron Fit", I have developed a 30 week training program to get me to Louisville.

Week 25 - 15 Jul

Mon - rest day
Tues - 2500 yd swim; 4 mi run
Wed - 1 hr spin
Thurs - start FL vacation; watching Stage 18 of TDF - two times up the Alp d'Huez. Makes my 'big' climbs in southern Illinois seem a little pathetic. To date, Chris Froome is proving to be the man to beat, though I'm a big fan of Nairo Quintana.
Fri -
Sat - Great stage win by Quintana!
Sun -

Tough week from a training perspective. Will try to get in runs where I can during the vacation. Need to use this as a rest period and then hit it hard when I return.
