I joined the Swim Club of Norcal (theswimclub.org) to prepare for Wildflower. My pool broke in the fall, and I’ve gathered the materials to finish fixing it, but have not found the time to do the work. In order to get into shape, I joined the Masters Swimming program in the swim club. I’ve done 4 workouts since joining and I’m finally to the point where I’m not totally sore 10 minutes into an hour workout. With just a couple of weeks left, I should be ok for the swim during the race. I wont be totally in shape, but enough to not wipe myself out in the swim portion of the triathlon.
The lottery selection for the Ironman World Championship in Kona HI is tomorrow. If I win a lottery slot into the race I’ll have my work cut out for me trying to get into shape for an Ironman. Its been hard enough training for a half, but a full Ironman is a whole different animal. Definietly more than twice the training required.
