Triathlon training

Today I rushed home to watch the last 30 minutes of Ironman Championship in Kona. Earlier this week I had picked up an issue of First, I should probably back track. I half been cross training since my November post with cycling (indoor) and @p90x with running here and there. Since I picked up the magazine, I've been inspired to do more and after watching Kona, I've got my mind set to do one in 2011.

I've been blessed with the ability to swim without a problem, bike without difficulty and luckily I've already been running half and full marathons. I'm planning on just doing a half IM which is 1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, and 13.1 mile run. I know that I can handle all of that, it's just putting it all together. I've gotten suggestions from @gabox, @indianabackdoc, and @KGIRLTRIS to do Cancun 70.3. I have also looked at Racine 70.3. So for now I and New Year's goal is a Half Ironman. I, of course, will be needing coaching and am hoping two of the world's finest coaches that many of us know - @coachprs and @dianeprs-will do so when I can get myself back to functioning mode. For the first time in 6 months, I am actually proud of myself!! :)
