Ten weeks towards the goal

This is how the first ten weeks of 2006 stacked up for me, on a week-by-week basis. Not very high volume training (yet), but solid consistency for me, and gradually increasing totals. Plus a marathon, two half marathons, and a swim clinic under my belt. That's money in the Bank of Ironman, I'm hoping!

Checking my Excel chart every week and maintaining weekly minimums in each discipline has made a world of difference in the consistency of my training this year. That's a big change for me! Hurrah!

You're so scientific! No wonder you are doing so great, and getting all those PRs lining up and falling down before you as you progress!

That is a neat graph! I just got out my training program last night. Only 8 more weeks until my first Half Ironman.

My training program is just black and white. No pretty colored graphs like yours. :0)

Congrats. I'm still waiting for tomorrow to come along, but it never comes. Luckily for me, I have a job that pays me 3 times a week to go exercise so I will be starting more and more. I've been getting out and walking, fast, and my b-i-law told me to walk the first 1/4 mile and then start running.

Nancy that is the problem with tomorrow, it always comes today and never seems like tomorrow. Wednesday, I will get out there. That's a promise!

I thought I was obsessed with my charting my workouts...but I have never put them in excel and made it pretty! (Get obsessed, stay obsessed, I guess is what our mantra should be!)
Good for you!
