    First Ironman; Sharing my story!

    Hi all -

    This November I am participating in my first Ironman!! I am keeping a blog on what I am doing, what I find is working, not working, etc. Would love feedback and for you to take a look.

    Spanking The Ironman | Training, suffering, and an insight into all it takes to be an Ironman.

    All the best!

    Great that you're doing your first IM! I did Florida too, and have this advice:

    • Look up "13 weeks to a 13 hour ironman" - great training program
    • First IM - maintain forward progress. Don't panic if something breaks, a split doesn't go well...maintain forward progress
    • For me (following the above program), the last few weeks of training were harder than the race


    Good luck!

    With all that training and youth on your side, you should be fine. I did nothing but swim, bike and speed-walk for my training.

    2013 IMFL was my first at 63.5 years old and I had a wonderful time. I'm also registered for 2014 IMFL and have 2 lottery entries for 2014 Kona.

    #1 goal.....keep it fun and good luck!
