Ironman Training Day 2b

Surprise! Yes, I am still alive. Life has been crazy. But I wanted to come back and ask you to join me in my journey to become an IronWoman!

Race: Ironman Lake Placid - July 28th (day before my 36th birthday)

And to make my life a little crazier, I decided to train for an Ironman while working full time (well, until March 15th any way!) as a 4th grade teacher.

Mirror Lake
The first day of Ironman training (btw: I am using the Be Iron Fit Intermediate plan) was Monday and was a REST day. A perfect way to begin, right? I certainly think so but unfortunately, the second day called for a 2500m swim and a 30 minute run AND the pool was closed today due to the holiday.  In order to stay on track, I decided to get my swim in yesterday and ran the New Year's Day 5k today. I think it is okay to be a little flexible and I am sure it will happen again.

Swim (Day 2a):
300 warmup
8x50 drill
8x50 drill (dropped 200 here due to time - had to be home by 7am)
200 cool down

Run (Day 2b):
30 min Z2 - 5k at a 9:27 pace and added a little run back to the car to complete the 30 minutes.

Tomorrow (Day 3) is Bike: 30 Z2 and Run: 15 Z2

I'll let you know how it goes.

What are your goals for 2013?
