ABOUT THIS TRAINING LOG
I kept a paper training journal when I was younger; I still have most of those notes today and it is fun for me to re-read them.
With the goal of an Ironman ahead of me, I thought it would be a good idea to start writing things down again; instead of paper, I created this digital format.
I hope it is relevant for:
- Friends and family wanting to know why I can't do "name any activity" on weekends anymore.
- Those embarked on their own similar journey and want to read about my process.
- My boss who may be wondering "the real reason" we are getting too close to our project's deadline.
Most importantly, this training log is relevant for me, as a record my experiences, the hurdles I face, the victories won and importanly, the bonds formed along the way.
SOME CONTEXT ABOUT ME
I am approaching my 50th bithday and do not have a great amount of endurance sport experience. I do have the desire to see this journey across an Ironman red carpet.
I took the date of IRONMAN Canada-Penticton, August 29, 2021 and worked back from there, creating a web page for every training week, 52 weeks in all.
Each webpage dedicated to a training week contains a WEEKLY GOAL, a SUMMARY and notes from SUNDAY to SATURDAY (the scheduled workouts, what I completed and importantly, how I felt).
There is a calendar page that gives you quick access to any completed week and highlights and special dates relative to my Ironman training.
