I have a confession to make. I have been lying to all of you for the past 3 months and I am completely ashamed of myself. I had told all of you that I was going to increase my distance in running, biking and swimming each week while I was training to become an Ironman and I did . . . from January 1 through March 15 that is.
For the past 3 months, I really haven’t done much training. My brother and I did run in the Orange County Marath0n on May 1, but since then, my training has been non-existent. While I have been calculating my Ironman training distances all along, I figured I would just owe myself and make up the miles later, but I have gotten too far behind.
I have told you all that I have run a total of 440 miles, biked 1,442 miles and swam 106,000 meters or 62 miles. In actuality, the numbers are much smaller . . . In reality, I have run 186 miles, have biked 454 miles and have swam 19 miles or roughly 30,500 meters.
I am terribly sorry that I have deceived all of you. I am embarrassed and ashamed of myself. All I can say is I’m not a role model. But, I’m jumping back on the band wagon again and I promise you that I will no longer lie to you about our progress in training. Well, I take that back, my guest post for tomorrow will tell of another thing that I lied about, but I promise . . . after that, no more lying . . . . .
