Michael's journey to become half ironman

Rocky the Furry Training Partner - Raising money for ARUK & a Half Iron Tri

michaelpgallucciby michaelpgallucciJul 8th 2013
Just a quick recap for those who have missed my previous blogs. I started my journey in August 2011 with the stated aim to become a triathlete. Along the way I wanted to raise cash for Alzheimer's Research so I decided that a half iron distance 70.3 tri this year would be a good target. I enrolled for Stowe and I am well into my training in the pool and lake with SFT - Martin Bay www.swimfortri.co.uk and on land with Craig O'Toole http://www.cotpt.com. I have been reading up on iron technique and hints on Andy Holgate's http://ironholgs.wordpress.com and my final and greatest training partner is Rocky our dog, http://rockyrockstarsuperstar.blogspot.co.uk/ who can out sprint me on my canal side training runs and is always up for a workout!

With Christmas 2011 out of the way, I sit down with the PT and we agree that a 10km run would be a good first target for the year as opposed to a full on triathlon. Whilst I am super-keen to jump in the water etc, I need a whole lot of training to do...
