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 27 - 29 Jul

Mon - rest day, well deserved after tough weekend
Tues - 75 min spin due to weather; slept in after long weekend but legs felt good on the bike
Wed - 2500 yd swim; pushed run till the PM...very tired; 6 mi run
Thurs - 75 min spin, 6 mi run
Fri - slept in, taking rest day because I've been so tired - actually think I had a bug; Kaeden ran a fever for 2 days
Sat - 20 mi run
Sun - 95 mi bike

Very tired mid-week. Strong finish to the week after coming down with something mid-week. Need to hit swimming hard for next two weeks as I taper run and bike.
