About a month ago, I asked Coach Irondad to help me start training for this year’s races (the Goleta Beach Long Course Triathlon, the Las Vegas Rock n’ Roll Half Marathon, and the HITS Palm Springs 70.3). It started out bumpy (I’ve gained 50 lbs and had become ridiculously inactive), but I’m getting into the groove. I feel a little better every day, and I love that I’m starting to get stronger (if not yet significantly lighter). Definitely not perfect, but I’m sleeping better, getting up earlier, making it to the gym before work at least a couple days a week, and trying my best to do my workouts when and as prescribed. I’m inching towards consistency, and it feels pretty good!
