Ironman 70.3 Soma Training Begins

Every journey begins with a single step. Today was our first step on the journey to Ironman 70.3 at Soma in Tempe, AZ on Oct 20, 2013. Difference from last year? We'll be using an Ironman Training plan from the book Essential Week-by-Week training Guide to get to our 70.3 goal.

Why? Next year we plan to tackle 140.6 Ironman AZ and we want to get a feel for the training plan before we're committed to it for survival.

Today's work out was at our work gym and the 1 hour spin went fairly well. We had lots of folks in the gym to provide chat and entertainment for us. The hour passed quickly and I felt great getting off the bike (especially considering I'm still recovering from a wicked chest cold!). Even got some leg weights in. 

And so it begins... looking forward to this journey with my awesome hubby!
