We have a Challenge!!
welcome, hope you are well.
Corporate ironman is in PE in April 2014, 5 April 2014. we have decided to enter a team for nelson mandela bay business chamber. the 3 disciplines are 380m swim, 18m cycle and 4.2km run.
when we got to talking about it we decided to each do our own race, and not a relay race. so the challenge is now set, we have to do this!
i've asked Lesley aka little lesley, to train with me and do the ironman 70.3 in east london next year. i think she will agree, especially after the corporate challenge and we are planning to do the knysna half marathon in june. that is such a popular race and i'm hoping i will be ready for 21km in june - we'll see.
the swim in the sea still remains the biggest challenge to me, and i won't lie i am extrememly nervous of the 'washing machine' at the start of the race. but so is lesley, so we will conquor together!
are you training at all? if you have any tips on training for ironman, first time competitors in a triathlon or you are also starting out, please leave a comment - will be great to hear from you.
