Which means: The Sparkling Eyes of My Roots – Our success is about respecting our roots, taking value in what we have learned, and embracing our journey.

That is the chosen theme for this year’s Ironman World Championship race, and I think it is beautiful. Respect for the environment, Respect for others and Respect for ourselves, that is the only way to achieve real success.

Kona 2012, real training starts

Posted by on Jul 23, 2012 in Biking, Ironman, Running, Swimming, Training | 0 comments

Game on, 12 weeks to go. Real training starts today. I know what I need to do, I have a plan and I will do this.

First thing I’ve done is to review my training log, checked what I did in 2010 and try to learn from the experience. So here are some facts from 2010 (last 12 weeks of training before Kona):

– Swim: I did 25 workouts, totalling 70.875 km. 17 of those were above 3.000 mts., and 3 equalled 4.000 mts.  In Kona 2010 I had a decent swim (1:15) considering that I took it easy.

– Bike: I worked out 26 times, totalling 1.959 Km., 11 of those rides were above 100 Km, and 2 equalled 160 km. My bike leg in Kona 2010 was horrible, I suffered a lot in the winds. I intend to do more rides outside this year, will be easier to train in Switzerland. I am also taking my bike with me this summer (Lanzarote is very similar to the big island).

– Run: I ran 37 times, totalling 396.8 km. 6 of those runs were above 20 km. and 4 above 25 km. Longest distance covered was 30 km. I had a good and relaxed marathon in Kona 2010 (I just checked my logs and my heart rate average was 130 bpm!), no changes planned for this year. I also need to take care of my calf injury now.

I will post my workouts here and share the journey.
