I would like just to share with you about my new training plan that I will start next Monday, May 3rd.
I have updated from Bronze to Silver on http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/ and selected Half Ironman Triathlon Training Plan - 20 weeks http://www.beginnertriathlete.com/cms/article-detail.asp?articleid=651, as I would like to participate on my first 70.3 Ironman during 10H2, earliest Tokoname (Japan), September 19th:
or, if not ready yet, Phuket (Thailand), December 6th.
Anyway, I know before to start it, that will be very challenging to achieve it 100%, as I will be travelling for work and vacation during next months, but, will try my best to accomplish it, as much as I can....let´s see, and, of course, everything will depend on my ¨ïnjuries free time¨,as I am still recovering from my ITBS!
