2020 Brings New Adventures!

Hello everybody!

I hope you all had great holidays with family and friends. Emily and I sure were busy during them. I certainly enjoyed them but now that they are over it is time to get back onto a regular routine. Lucky I didn’t fall off of training too badly!

I was able to do a windy 50 mile bike ride on Christmas day and have continued on with the swim coach I hired! I will say investing my money with a swim coach that knows what he is doing has really helped! I struggled to do 50 meters without heavy breathing and changing strokes from freestyle to breast stroke. Now I am doing 300 meter warm ups and averaging 2200 meters per swim!

For the bike I have been using a smart trainer along with TrainerRoad. They have really great training schedules that you can tailor to your individual goal races and abilities. I used the “Plan Builder” feature and entered in Ironman Tulsa and Ironman Arizona then the Plan Builder generated a training schedule that cycles through each event with each phase of training.

I have slowed down on running to focus on the lower impact side of the triathlon. This is giving my legs a little time to rest up from the Marathon, 27 mile birthday run, and 25k I ran in the past couple of months. I am looking at doing a couple trail races coming up in February and April. Post Oak I would like to do the Triple challenge consisting of a 50k, 27.2, 50k spread out from Friday to Sunday. This will possibly be my first official Ultra Marathon. The other race is The Mid South previously known as the Land Run 100.

I would love to find a 50 mile Ultra sometime between Ironman Tulsa and Ironman Arizona. Please let me know if you all have a good one to attempt!

Some goals I have for 2020:

  • 2020 miles of running.
  • Bike more miles than I drive. My truck is currently at 19,450 miles on January 1st.
  • Swim a bunch… No set goal yet…
  • Read 26 books.

I have some other small goals but I will let you all know how I am with staying on track with the goals.

I will also compile a gear list of what I am using currently to train with this weekend and hopefully have it posted by Monday!
