It is done, Iron Man Bolton 2018 signed up and paid for.
Therefore, a strategy needs to be implemented in order to ensure valuable time is not wasted. The past two/three months I have not been training as much as I should have, taking the “I ran a race this weekend so I have earned a few days off” approach. This will not do for the next year, excessive rest days for no reason need to be a thing of the past if I am to get to peak physical fitness.
Therefore, the next three weeks will be dedicated to getting basic fitness up to scratch. This will involve:
The last three methods of getting fit are not directly related to Iron Man and triathlons. However, at this point, I feel it is important to get my fitness up to where it was 4 months ago and so I feel good about myself, not a sluggish slob.
Three weeks to get a routine in place and to ultimately feel ready to start tackling triathlon training.
After these three weeks, I shall start to incorporate more cycling and swimming training sessions rather than having a jolly and getting used to it.
