I started running in January of 2004 to get in shape. I had gained too much weight and felt terrible. I was able to run my first 5K 3 months later. 2 years later and 50 lbs lighter, I have continued to push for greater goals and have run 5 marathons and I am training for an Iron distance triathlon now. Everyday I wake up with a positive attitude towards life, training and my future.

November 09, 2007
Well, last I blogged and had a lot of ranting and raving. I'm better now. I've accepted the idea of not doing an "Ironman" event next year. I am soooooo looking forward to training and completing my first Iron Distance Event.

So where do I start. How do I start. When do I start.

These questions need answered. There needs to be a lot of thought devoted to these questions.

An Iron Distance Event is like nothing else on earth for an athlete. Training for this distance requires setting up a training plan, a nutrition plan, and a recovery plan. Each of these plans must be practiced over and over again. During the next 300 days prior to my event I will be blogging the steps that I will be taking to get ready for the big race. Consider it the "Road to the Iron Race" Blog. I hope to document each step I take in preparation for the race.

I am intensely studying training schedules and techniques used by other athletes and coaches. I would like to have my own coach for this but I am not sure I will be able to afford one. So for the next 300 days or so this will be a learning experience for me and for my readers. Anyone who is reading my blog and has comments regarding my training for the Iron Race, please send them on through. I could use all the help I can get.
