If you're going to participate make a post like this above. Then copy and paste your last post each time you want to update, and update with the new totals. Don't just edit your post - nobody gets a notice there's an update that way and I may not notice your achievements!

I have 20 weeks from now to my birthday in early June. That is my goal!

That means on average:

Swim: 190m (just under 8 laps)/week
Bike: 9km/week
Run: 2.1km/week

I think that should be easy peasy, except maybe for the swimming! I have never lane-swum before, and when I tried it first time recently I put my shoulder out and I'm still recovering. So that will be a couple of weeks really before I start on the swimming, so maybe 10-12 laps a week.

Ever wanted to do an IronMan but been absolutely flummoxed by the distances? (Hint - if you don't know, it's a three-stage event and the third stage is a full marathon!)

Now is your chance to join me in a challenge to complete an Ironman this year, cumulatively!

Ironman distance is:
Swim 3.8km
Bike 180km
Run 42km

There will be prizes along the way for anyone participating! Just post your updates each time and add to the previous totals for each of those three events. The goal is to complete the Ironman by either year's end, or set your own goal date!

RULES

1. Only swim/bike/run/walk are to be counted. Other activities are great cross-training and awesome for any other challenges you're doing, but until the makers of the official events allow elliptical and/or jazz dance in the official Ironman events, we're sticking with the activities they DO have. So that's lane swimming (any stroke, but not counting 'mucking about in the pool with the kids for half an hour'), biking (including exercycles, and spin class at the rate of 20km/hour) and run/walk.

2. Only 'exercise' activities count. An Ironman is a serious physical challenge. Walking to work and back five times a week isn't. Like the cross training activities, it's great if you do that and might be suitable for other pure mileage challenges, but this is to emulate a "serious physical challenge event", so only "serious physical exercise" counts. Obviously that's entirely personal - but if you're doing it "for exercise" and challenging yourself, that's counted. If it's incidental like shopping around the mall or biking to work, it's not "for exercise" and for this particular challenge isn't loggable.

If you want to join in make a followup post with your goal date and start tracking your km's!!! (Or at least for me, in the case of swimming, the m's!!! LOL)
