My First FULL Ironman…IM Louisville 2011!

One of the aims of this space is to help keep me accountable and motivated to training and competing in my first full Ironman on August 28, 2011! For the first time in my life I will challenge my body to 140.6 miles. Today my husband and I rode 30 miles with a steady head wind and even now as I write I can feel my legs a little sore. While my focus right now is road racing season and getting my “running legs” back I know I have a long way to go from my 140.6 challenge. I will definitely keep you posted on my progress and hopefully spread this bug around:)

One thought on “My First FULL Ironman…IM Louisville 2011!

  1. Hi
    I just wanted to wish you luck for Ironman, I’ve completed 3 now and loved every minute ( well almost ) of them.
    Getting good cycling miles into your legs will help immensely BUT I’m sure you know all of that already.

    So from one Ironman to another ( by the end of August 28th 2011 ) GOOD LUCK.
