    Workout Update

    Hope all is well with you. I have made quite a bit of progress in my small universe. I am now able to run about 5 miles without stopping. That is a big hurdle for me. I am slow, but I am also consistent which is a good thing. Next goal is to build up some strength and endurance, as I think that will help with my speed along with a little bit of muscle definition.

    IM SA

    Hello IronDave. I see you have not tracked anything since we last spoke. Are you doing beter? Taking off 2012. Just to report back/brag. I did my 1st IM in 16h50. It was a horrible day with 3m swells wind gusting at 75 km/h and rain on the run. BUT I DID IT. No cramping and perfect pacing. Thanks for your inspiration and advice along the journey

    May be do a few sprint or olympic distance triathlons. That can increase your speed and stamina. AND I think because it can be done more frequent you will be greatly rewarded. Or is your cycling is the weak spot do 6 months of only cycling or MTB to increase your strength or running Do 10km to make you real fast or even go to the pool and do master swimming. Great speedwork. It sound like you need a break from the IM. But Good luck and keep me informed. I hate seeing no IronDave at the top of the leader boards. Were will our inspiration come from

About Me

I'm currently training to do an Ironman (3.8km swin, 180km bike, 42.2km run). Picked up running, swimming and biking in june 08. I went from 210lbs and 32% of body fat a year ago to 150lbs and 13% of body fat right now. I did an olympic triathlon in september 08, now I'm going for a full Ironman planned in june 09. Long way to go, but I know I'll make it (hopefully...). The date has now changed, the Ironman will be in August, as june 09 is now scheduled for the Rio Marathon. I've also started a blog a few months ago, where I try to talk about my journey from my couch to Ironman: Rio Marathon, June 28th, 2009: done in 3h40 Ironman UK, August 2nd, 2009: done in 13h30 Gerardmer Olympic tri, qualifier for Escape from Alcatraz Triathlon September 6th, 2009: done it in 2h59, not qualified for Alcatraz (far from it) Ironman Zurich, July 25th, 2010: done in 11h16 Berlin Marathon, September 26th, 2010: done in 3h46 Coming next: Regensburg Ironman on August 7th, 2011
