This is my first attempt at writing a blog. I don't usually read other blogs when they are too long, so I'm going to try to keep all of my posts fairly short. I thought that in my shameless quest for sponsorship, a blog might help out my case. Especially if somebody other than Robert Lightfoot reads it (and as bored as he gets at work, it will take some convincing to get even him to read this.).
I am currently in the 3rd week of a 20 week training program leading up to Ironman Texas on May 21. To avoid burn out, I took 10 weeks off at the end of last season, and now I'm paying for it. The workouts so far have just about all been painful. But, so far it has been fun.
I did a lot of races last year and had only average results. This year, I am going to do fewer races and I have some big goals for them. My goals are to:
Podium overall in a race
Run a sub 11 hour Ironman in Texas
Run a sub 4:30 half Ironman
These are some lofty goals, I know. But, if you're not hammering, why race?
