...going to have to give up on this goal. I took a week long vacation this month, and I just am not going to be able to complete it. I have the swimming portion finished. I also have a good portion of the walking and biking done, as well, but I can tell that I’m not going to be able to finish both. I’ll tackle it again in September. It’s still be a good project, though, because I have worked out quite a bit.
Swimming – 180 pool lengths (of 2.4 miles or 169 pool lengths)
Biking – 60 miles (of 112 miles)
Running/Walking – 17 miles (of 26.2 miles)
...that is happening at the gym that I attend. The distances are the same as the Ironman Triathlon, but, instead of doing the challenge in one strenuous day, we have a whole month to complete the distances. I think it’s a great challenge because it envolves three separate exercises, which will help shock the body instead of getting used to just doing one type of workout. It’s also a great challenge for me because it’s doable but I have to be disciplined to complete it. I’ve been going to the gym and swimming laps lately, but I haven’t really incorporated anything else into my workouts yet. The challenge starts on Wednesday August 1st and runs till the end of August on the 31st.
Here are the distances:
Swimming – 2.4 miles (3.9 km) or 169 pool lengths
Biking – 112 miles (180.25 km)
Running/Walking – 26.2 miles (42.2 km)
