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 5 - 25 Feb

Rest days...also very important for recovery (physical and mental) and adaption!

Was your Sat spin/run a brick session?

I meant for Sat to be a brick session, but the family events schedule forced me to run before the bike. Balancing family activities with my training schedule is an ongoing challenge.

It's one of the biggest challenges! Sometimes you just have to be flexible.
