This week I completed the Indoor Ironman at SIU Rec Center.  This race consisted of completing the distance of a full Ironman Race inside an allotted time period.  The Rec Center allows you three weeks to complete the competition, but I wanted to challenge myself to get it done within one week.  Despite having a lot of school work to do this week I did complete the distances although I feel like I cheated a little by putting so many miles on the indoor bikes.  You will hear more about this week of training later this week.

This week marks 33 weeks until Ironman Louisville.  My training plan is a 32 week plan so I will officially begin the training plan next Monday (February 29)!  I will unveil my full plan next week in a post.  This plan will include competing in the NCAA Triathlon National Championships in April, and completing at least one half Ironman in August (with another possible one in May). Needless to say I am going to take this week easy and just workout when and how I want too, rather than sticking to a strict plan like I will have to for the foreseeable future.
