And so it starts...yes, it starts with a rest day, but it starts. I'm going to be following a program that I got from a book called beIRONfit, By Don Fink. http://www.donfink.com
My starting weight is 248, as of this morning. I thought I'd be a little less, due to the amount of training that I've done. I really need to focus on nutrition as well as workouts during this next phase. I've taken some body measurements as well.
NOTE: I'm 6'4" and 37 years old.
Chest- 44 1/2
Hips- 42 3/4
Thigh- 26 3/4
WEEK 1 looks like this:
MONDAY (today) -REST DAY
TUESDAY- SWIM (about 2500 yards, with drills and intervals mixed), run 30:00 zone 2 HR
WEDNESDAY- 30:00 bike (Z2) with transition to 15:00 run (Z2)
THURSDAY- SWIM (2500, drills and intervals), BIKE 30:00 (Z1, 100+rpm)
FRIDAY- RUN 30:00 (Z2)
SATURDAY- BIKE 1:00:00 (Z2)
SUNDAY- RUN 45:00 (Z1 to Z2)
This program starts out at 6:00 in week 1 and builds up to 11.5 hours/week. The average is around 8.5 hours. My base training has prepared me for the "Intermediate" level of training. Hopefully, I will be successful, and this program will ultimately get me to the finish line at IRONMAN USA!
