As the Holiday Booty Buster Challenge winds down I find that I will miss it. I like having challenges, a little extra motivation never hurts! So I was excited when I saw that my gym (24 hour fitness) is hosting an Ironman competition. According to the instructions we have from January 1st until February 15th to complete the full ironman distances. What could be more perfect for me while I am training for Coeur d'Alene?!?
Also you can enter as many times as you like as long as you swim 2.4 miles (or 84.5 laps), ride 112 miles on the bike (each 60 minute spin class counts as 12 miles) and 26.2 miles by foot (running, walking, elliptical). I hope to complete at least 3 "Ironmans". I have already almost completed the swim and run portion but I think the bike will take me two weeks to complete.
Do you like competitions like these? Would you participate in an "Ironman Competition" at your gym?
Also I have added two races to my 2012 calendar. The first is Aimee's fault, she posted about doing the Greenland Trail 25k on May 5th and it sounds like too much fun!
The second race is the Wild West Relay
The WWR is a 200 mile relay on August 3rd and 4th. Cory and I were invited to join a team today and we are SO in!!! That will be my second relay in less than a month since I am going to run the EPIC relay with a team from work in July. Now I just need someone to invite me to run Hood to Coast (please)!
