Subject: RE: Full Vineman 2014 Triathlon : Official Thread
At this time last year I was getting ready to depart from home towards Santa Rosa on Wednesday. I bet you all are very excited about the upcoming weekend. I want to wish you all the best and safe travels during your trip to Vineman and during the race. I am so excited for you all. Can't wait to read about your races.

Two other perspectives to think about if don't mind me sharing...after getting off the bike it is hard to think now you get to run 26.2 miles. What I did was think about it as having to run 3 laps. I didn't track nor look at how many miles I ran or had left. I merely thought one lap down two more, one more, last lap...done. I don't think I noticed the mile markers until I was returning on the last half of my last lap. The other thing is if you can find someone to run with or walk with who is running your pace do it. It makes the time pass so much faster and you can challenge and support one another.

Have a great race everyone.

This program is a beginner plan to bridge you from an a Half Ironman to Ironman using a HRM with the confidence that you can complete the race without difficulty.

Executing this full Ironman plan for 17 weeks would give people with one Ironman under their belts very good preparation for a 2nd and 3rd. Preferably, you should have a 6:30 or faster HIM time.

Having three seasons under my belt I thought I knew what I was doing. That all changed with a few new challenges and a bunch of new friends.

If a heart patient can do these things, then so can those of you who haven't been split open like a fish and sewn back together.

I was not an official; I simply observed the race and the officials doing their thing. Here is what I saw:

This Intermediate 20 week plan is a quick ramp up in overall volume, but with 20 weeks to train only, it is a gradual and safe approach because of the alternating weeks of the long run/bike.

This training plan is written to prepare you for your first Ironman. While just a beginner’s plan, the hours per week start at a significant 8 hours.

Pain shows us how strong we are. After last weekend I am convinced of this. After 151 training hours of swimming, biking, and running, I flew to Sonoma County, California for the race.
