What's that they say about the road to hell?
Last week was a pretty tough week, but I did manage to get some solid training completed, and I feel pretty good about the numbers. Since posting my "accountability" picture a week ago, here is how things shake out:
1500 yd swim and 5K run on Wednesday
One yard mowed on Thursday (I called it 30 minutes walking)
80 mile bike on Saturday
Another yard mowed on Sunday (You're welcome, Dad)
10 mile run, this morning
Not perfect, but that discussion leaves out the time spent cleaning out my basement which suffered some water damage on Wednesday, courtesy of some odd circumstances involving two inches of rain in an hour, overflowing gutters, and water running down a wall.
Tuesday and Thursday will be swims, with another run and bike on Wednesday. Saturday will be the last big workout prior to attempting my self-supported Ironman on September 5th. I'll try to tackle a 5000 yard swim followed by about 110 miles on the bike and a short run-off.
Somewhere along the line I have to use some new tools at my disposal to create a new header for the site and use some real tools to finish stripping and refinishing a bookcase. Just for giggles, I'll use my spare time to learn a new song on the guitar. After all, if you're going to do it, why not overdo it.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
