ZebI am a Master Procrastinator.  This week, I did not do much in the way of exercise, but I did want to stay true to my New Year’s resolution where I would increase my distance in running, biking and swimming each week, until I was able to do the full Ironman distance for each event.  On Wednesday night, the last day of the week for my training, I was 6 miles short on my running, 14 miles short on my biking and 2.3 miles short on my swimming.

At 11:30 PM, I left for the gym and 4 hours later I was back in bed, having kept my New Years Resolution alive and well.  And, on top of that, I completed the full Ironman distance in the swimming pool.  Actually, a little bit over that, almost 2.5 miles.  It took me one hour to run 6 miles, one hour to bike 14 miles and 1 hour and 53 minutes to complete the 2.5 mile swim, 27 minutes faster then the cut-off time for the Ironman race.

Six miles is the longest I have ran in one attempt, 14 miles is the third longest I have ever biked, and 2.5 miles is the longest I have ever swam in a pool.  I am extremely proud that I stuck to my New Year’s Resolution, but also really impressed about how long I was able to last.  This whole Ironman thing is going to be easier than I thought.

Weekly Amount:

Running = 10.4 miles
Biking = 44 miles
Swimming = 4600 M or 2.9 miles
Total Amount: 57 miles

Overall Amount:

Running = 40 miles (71 miles to San Diego)
Biking = 87 miles (24 miles to San Diego)
Swimming = 17,200 meters or 10.7 miles (26.6 miles to Los Angeles)
Total = 136 miles (106 miles to Las Vegas)
