Training Log

I am trying to keep myself honest and motivated. On the right there is a training log. I am going to keep the info pretty simple, but my goal is to publicly expose my ineptness at training. I really don't know what I am doing. I have a book that I borrowed from Dave that I am finally starting to read. I have only had it for 2 months without cracking it open. It has a bunch of training plans in it. I am tentatively planning on doing the Viking Man Triathlon in early June. There is a 27 week schedule that I plan on doing from the book. I think my start date for the program is the first week of December. The plan states that prior to starting the plan I should be running 2 or three times per week, biking 1 to 2 times per week and swimming twice per week for 4 weeks prior to starting it.

I noticed that the plan has me swimming in one hour blocks from the get-go. That is beyond my ability right now. Hopefully in a month it wont be. Basically training has started for my June 6th Triathlon. It is a Half Ironman, should be interesting if nothing else to see what happens.

I will let you all know that I am currently 205 lbs. 6 feet 1 inch tall. I would like to get down to the mid 180's. I am interested to see where my weight ends up. I gained about 8 lbs since last Christmas--mostly because of a very heavy load at school and then the bar exam this summer. I basically gave up for about 4 months on trying to exercise.

I will post what my weight is as well on the right so that I can be publically embarrassed.
