doctorake Posted December 28, 2015 Report Share Posted December 28, 2015 YAY! Finally starting a battle log! So I have been signed up for IRONMAN Wisconsin on 9/11/16 now for a few motnhs. Time to start getting my training under way. A little history on this endeavor. Last year my wife and I decided to do a half IRONMAN in RAcine Wisconsin in July. She trained rather hard and did very well. My training was not the best due to injuries, video games, beer, and excuses. I managed to finish in just over 7 hours but was a little disappointed since I could have been faster. This year will be different as I am more focused than ever and actually have already been training for 11 days now. My training schedule looks like this: Monday: Squats, overhead press or bench. Then swim intervals.Tuesday: Long run.Wednesday: Over head Press or bench, power clean, and then bike intervals on the trainer.Thursday: Long swim(almost like a rest day)Friday: Overhead Press or bench, deadlifts, Run Sprints.Saturday: Long bike ride.Sunday: Tempo Run. Every day will also have stretching and occasionally I will Ruck and also I play Ice Hockey. I am focusing on 8 hours of sleep a night as a minimum, without drinking. Nutrition for now is 2,200 calories a day. I am getting a Resting Metabolic Rate test done in the coming week and may adjust based on that and as well as my workload increasing.I am also currently signed up for IRONMAN 70.3(half distance) in New Orleans in April. This will be my first big test to shave some serious time off my last event. I am considering signing up for Eagleman in June in MD, also a 70.3 And so it starts....
