I made it to the gym 5 days in a row this week. Unfortunately, I had to answer my pager on Monday so I only worked out 4 days in a row. I ran twice, swam and rode the trainer. These were the first meaningful workouts since October. My longest workout was 30 minutes but it is a start.
There is a lot of work to get done before June 5th.
I didn’t get to workout this morning, but I did get on the scale. I am starting from 243. It only took 2 months to put on 20 pounds.
I haven’t done any meaningful workout since Thanksgiving Day when I ran the Turkey Trot 5k. I have gained back about 22 pounds since then. I have some serious work to do. My plans are to do 3 half-marathons and a Half-Ironman triathlon this year. The ultimate goal is to do a Full Ironman distance triathlon in the next 2 or 3 years. I hope to do a better job of updating this blog at least once a week.
Tomorrow I will start working out again by going to the gym first thing in the morning. Tomorrow’s workout will be a simple 30 minute run maybe a little longer if I feel up to it. It will also be my first weigh in on the scale at the gym. I am going to cut down my workout tracking to just Daily Mile. I will upload my Garmin data to Garmin Connect, however, Daily Mile will be my primary tracking program.
My next post will be my baseline data. That will include my weight and how the treadmill run goes. After that, I am hoping to post to the blog weekly, and use my twitter account for daily updates.
