I have been Ironing....

Yes it has been awhile, Hi Mike!!{waving} This is going to be a little long. I am going to explain a little on the duathlon and the USAT that I have learned.

First I have my Half Ironman training workouts from my trainer, I think she is trying to make me pass out. Today stars day one of a week of Endurance training. Day one is one hour run and 30 minute bike ride. I have dump 2 pounds finally!!! YAY!!!

Now I have fell in love with the Duathlons. I like doing these. I have been dong the sprint distance. Which is 1 mile run,10 mile bike, and 2.5/3.1 mile run. If I do 6 races at this distance, I will get a end of the year USAT award and bonus points of 500. {yes there is a point system} Right now I am 2nd in category and 116 over all. I am not last!!!!

Now I have to do the Half Ironman 70.3 miles ,which is 1 mile sprint, 56 mile bike ride, and 13.1 mile run. Now After I do this I am now able to pay for my lottery, to see if I can get in to Ironman. So by next season I will be swimming in the races. Season starts in Feb. 2010. I am waiting on more information on if this years Miami Man can be used for next year. If so I am in, otherwise I will have to find one right after the Marathon weekend in Jan.2010. There is a point system like Nascar. The more races you do, faster you are more pionts you get and the higher rank you are overall at the end of season in Nov.

SO if I CAN do 70.3 miles, I should be able to do the Goofy right???{grinning} 90% full as of today, Full 75%. half 85% full. Without getting swept.

Race number 3 is this Sunday. Down in Miami,they had to move the course, and it is going to be shorter. 2/3 run, 8 mile bike and 5k. I have been training and I feel great I should do really well in this one.

Oh yeah, the Olympic distance is way shorter than ironman, I am going to do some of those too. ;0) Full Iron 2.4 swim, 116 bike ride ,26.2 mile run, Olympic is .93 swim, 24.8 mile bike and a 10k run.

Did you see they are offering 5k distances in the Disney races?? All the races. Cool!!!! SO that means new races to do and they are adding a triathlon series too!!! Maybe a Ironman?? Sweet!!!!

So this is what I have been doing,over in the right hand side is my twitter updates, and facebook updates. Keep an eye out on them. And maybe just maybe I will have some really cool news about Team Voice.

I can't wait to see this in 2010!!! I wonder what the theme is going to be.
