Michelle's IronPerson 70.3
Michelle's IronPerson 70.3
I decide to do a Half Ironman. (We really ought to call it a Half Ironperson, really.... I mean c'mon people! It's 2009 here!)

The Half Ironman adds up to 70.3 miles in total:

1.2-mile (1.9 km) swim
56-mile (90 km) bike ride
13.1-mile (21.1 km) run

I started taking long-distance biking seriously about 2 or 3 years ago, but only did my first roadie ride this summer in June 2009. As for swimming, I started taking lessons in January 2009 and only then did I learn the front crawl for the first time. And running? Psssshhh... who runs anyway? Not me.

Needless to say, I've got a long way to go and a lot of training ahead of me.

Bicep Blues

Ok, I admit it. I over-trained. I overworked that little bicep...

First week on my new weight training plan and I put myself out of all training for 4 days.

My bicep was so sore, that I couldn't even swim or bike! I even had to skip out on ballet this week! I suppose I might have been able to run, but...

Here's hoping for a better, injury-free week!
