Remaining goals for 2008

I have glanced at my totals for 2007 and 2008. Looks good. I think I have slacked the most on the run. That is funny because I am a good runner, but only when running. Running is one of my weaker disciplines during a triathlon. I am so amazed I finished an Ironman this year. One of my running buddies runs 80-90 miles per week. PER WEEK. YIKES. I struggle to run that much in a month. After looking at my totals, I want to make this year an all-start year.

2008 Totals (As of 10/14/08)
Swim: 199,150 meters (132.77 miles)
Bike: 2,911.99 miles
Run: 693.96 miles

2007 Totals
Swim: 200,035 meters (133.36 miles)
Bike: 2,570.60 miles
Run: 714.06 miles

I have some work to do. Here are my list of goals for the remaining of 2008.

Pass 200,000m and possibly 225,000m? That would be 150 miles total.
Swim every Tuesday and Thursday (min of 1,000 per day)

Reach 3,250 miles
Speed/Interval workouts
Ride 2-3 times per week??

Run 306 miles...
- 79 days left to run
- Can I run 3.88 miles per day
- Can I run every day?
- I need a new pair of shoes!!!

The run goal seems to be the toughest. It almost scares me. I think I can manage the swim and bike goals.

I went on a 5 1/2 mile run today during my lunch break. It was much later than my normal time, but I felt like going out for a run.

What was I thinking?? IRONMAN!!!!

I was thinking of when I could possibly do another one? I am thinking 2010 or 2011?? Not sure what, when, where yet? I will keep dreaming for now...Ooooh. Maybe I will have an awesome Ironman dream tonight.

I am getting up early enough to catch the start of Kona Ironman World Championship. I am not sure how long I will watch it, but I might be glued to the Computer all day long. Take care.

Go Danny!! You rock!

New Things

Lots of new things coming up...Some I will tell you about, and some I won't.

Workouts have been on and off. Nicole and I went to Alamagordo, NM this weekend. It was a very short trip, but we had fun. We went to Nicole's 10 year high school reunion. Not a huge turnout, but we had fun anyways.

I went running once in Alamagordo. It's a neat town to run in.
