Ironman Training

March 2, 2019

Well, I've determined I am doing an Ironman in 2019.  Here's the issue.  I'm not a swimmer.  There seems to be two camps in the triathlon world.  There's the swimmers, who hate the running and/or biking, and the runners/bikers who just try to get through the swim without drowning.  I am a runner, and swimming has stopped me from trying to do an Ironman for years.  But here's the thing.  I know I CAN swim 2.4 miles, if I train enough.  It makes logical sense.  It's just the fear in my head that says I can't.  So I must squash that voice, and be positive that I will swim the distance with confidence on November 24.  The hardest part about swimming is that you can't "power" your way through it.  It is all about technique.  So, I must learn to swim correctly, relaxed, at a low heart rate and for a long time.  I am excited about learning this new skill!  It won't be easy, but I will enjoy the journey and do the necessary work to make it happen.  If you are like me, don't let your lack hold you back.  Set a goal and crush it!  Upward and Onward!


Never Stop,
