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.

The Spins

I'm getting back into action slowly, one sport at a time. I'm already back to 2-3 spin workouts a week. Next comes the swimming. And last but not least, the run...

Leave it to the UofT Tri Club to keep this week's spin classes exciting!

On Monday, I walked into the workout to find a guy in a full suit on the lead bike. What the?!?!? The regular leader was sick and asked his friend to go in his place! Sweating your butt off on a non-stop 20-minute climb while staring at a dude slowly pedaling backwards is, well, something I've never done before!

Yesterday's spin leader had more energy and wasn't dressed in a suit-- but a Halloween costume! Fun times...

Feels good to be getting back into it.

I thought I would just drop in and say hello! I am also starting my quest for a 1/2 iron"person". Hope that your training goes well.
