Training Tuesday: The Upside to Peer Pressure

At first, I was all like, "I don't know if I can do the 70.3 this year." Then I blogged about it. Then, this happened:
And then this happened:
And today, this happened:

So now, I'm all signed up for the Ironman 70.3 Racine triathlon on July 21, almost exactly six months from now. That should be plenty of time to get lean, fast, ripped and ready, right?

RIGHT?

Thanks to my friends for pushing encouraging me into this new challenge. The truth is, knowing how much money I put into this race registration will deter me from slacking off. Knowing that start line is waiting for me, my bib number is reserved and there's a spot for my bike waiting will fuel me when I'm feeling lazy. Registering for a race that required me to enter my health insurance information is just the spark I need to get moving.

Ironman 70.3 Racine, I'm coming for you. For the next six months, I will eat, sleep and train to conquer.

See you July 21.

Go you!! Let me know if you want to do some training rides together - I'm always looking to get out to the burbs for them! Like maybe when it's warmer!

Yay! You can do it. Its not a big deal, just work it like a marathon. Break it down & just cover the miles. It will be good! And Ironman is found of loops so they can offer support easier. Cances are that we will all see each other a lot!
