Week 1 - Start of 2019 and Ironman training
Well it’s officially 2019! woop woop! 🎉 🥳
Its going to be a big year for me, its the year I am going to become an Ironman. You will notice that I am confident about it. Well … lets say we shall see what happens, but:
Failure is not an option!
I have focused on starting the new year running, (or more like cycling) by doing all the key sessions I should be doing over the next few months.
- Cycling sessions. I started doing my Zwift Grand Fonto training program, which aims to build my fitness to be ready to do 100-200km.
- Early morning swims, at 6:30. I am currently trying to get my body used to that effort. These sessions should be easy (eventually), active recovery for 40-50 minutes. (Going to do one tomorrow 😅)
- Brick sessions. I “kinda” did one on Monday but I rested in between the sessions… So… maybe it was just two sessions, which luckily is something I need to do also!
- Enjoyed my life a bit! 😇
The top three items all had there challenges. For example, the Zwift program was quite demanding and I am only on Week 0 ( 😳 ), the swim was at 6:30 am (enough said) and the brick was the first “long” ride I had dont since probably September.
So far, so good!
A lot more hard work to come, but dare I say ( 🤞🏻 ) I am ready for it!
