IMCdA Training Summary: Week 1

As you can see, I’m already off to a great start at maintaining the blog… 🙂

My goal for the first month of Ironman training is to establish a workout routine that I can stick to and to get in the habit of rolling/stretching frequently. The first week of training was a little unusual because it included a 5k race at work (where I won my AG, thank you very much) and a weekend at Lake Tahoe to volunteer at IMLT (a recap is in the works).  I had originally planned an epic training weekend while in Tahoe, but the weather had other plans…
