So it's been a while since I had any sort of journal on this site.. and I won't bother dredging up the old one.
This will be more of a periodic log to track my progress, mostly because what I'll be trying to do within the next 12 months is not a combination of things that are ordinarily done concurrently so I'll need the benefit of occasional feedback or lookbacks...
The items in the journal title are my goals, all to be done within the next 12 months. What I would LIKE to do, of course, is complete them all within a six month period, starting with either the half ironman or an ultra in October.
Currently, I've completed 3 full marathons, last one in March, and my current best lifts WITHIN THE LAST THREE WEEKS, not my usual six month maxes) have been the following:
Bench press: 425
Longest run: 28.5 miles (9:35 pace)
Longest bike: N/A
Longest swim: N/A
I'm currently designing the long term program, but it will likely involve ME lifting days during the week (one bench focused movement, one squat or DL focused movement) with speed work on the weekend, and single event short duration cardio training blended in during the week (running speed work, any distance swim work, hill training on bike), and either distance work or brick workouts during the weekend (Swim and bike, bike and run, run and drink heavily).
Currently 223 pounds, about 7.5% bodyfat. I would like to keep this about the same, as if I go much under 215 my strength tanks, but if I go over 235 I can't run worth shit.
This should be fun!
