I haven't started to actually blog since I made this website. I suppose now is as good a time as any. I have had a Facebook page the past few years for training purposes that you can follow https://www.facebook.com/SwimBikeRunRepeat/ but again, I haven't been religious about updating that page either. I think maybe it's about time that I start keeping on top of it.
As some people in my life may know, I broke my ankle and had surgery late August and the beginning of September. I'm signed up for Ironman number two next September at IMMOO (Wisconsin). Next week, I'm allowed to start 'running' again. PT said like 3x 1 min run with a walk in between. Sounds boring to me. Lately, I've been walking a lot, cycling on my trainer for an hour a couple times a week and swimming.., a lot. Many people also know I had surgery 3 days before my wedding. I got married on crutches and got wheeled up the aisle. Life throws you curve balls, but I still got to marry my best friend. That doesn't make me less badass.
Tonight, my friend Michael and I are going to the Boston Sports Club and attempting the 100x100 challenge. That's probably a hair over 3 hours of swimming. 10,000 yards. Crazy is the way I roll as an Ironman triathlete, and since I won't be running far anytime soon, I figured this was a good way to get out some excess energy and get some exercise.
I am definitely looking forward to training with my new coach, Nick Cumbo of Ascension Multisport. Healing takes time, training is a lot of hard work, but I'm stubborn and determined. I'm an Ironman triathlete.
I will try and update this blog at least once a week over the next year. Don't hold me responsible though for the two weeks I'm going away to Hawaii backpacking for our belated honeymoon in a couple weeks though. I'm not complaining. I love my life, and just can't wait to be back at it full force.
