Measure Success

Beyond conquering the course and embracing the journey, Ironman offers an opportunity to have a tight body.
Bring it on!!!

To measure success I am tracking weight, inches, and training hours.
Here are the results.

Week 1 – 9
Training Hours: 95
Swim:   2,025 laps (either 25 yards or 25 meters)
Ride:         420 miles (both road and spinning)
Run:          135 miles (primarily road but also on treadmill)
Yoga:        15 hours
Massages … Not Enough !!!

I started measuring my body during week 3.  Here are those results:
Inches lost: 3.75
#s lost: 4
Muscle gain: priceless

18-Jun 4-Aug
Upper Arm 11 10 1/4
Chest 37 36
Waist 32 32
Hips 40 39
Mid Thigh 22 1/2 22
Calf 15 14 1/2
Weight 149 145

Thanks to a healthier eating habit, I’m proud to report my cholesterol dropped from a high of 219 to 185.  So, stayed tuned.
Soon I’ll share nutritional tips and recipes too.

Always tri.  Never stop.
