Looked at her medal too!!
Never seen one in the flesh!
What an inspiration, she is.
A lady I spoke to when I went for a job trial, had just done Ironman on saturday.
Teeny, Tiny lady from Auckland called Janet.
Janet weighed 100+ kilos not so long ago…
180km bike ride, 3.8 km swim and 42 km run!!
But she was just amazing, she looked amazing and you could feel this ‘ thing’ off her.
I hugged her a few times, she must have thought I was a mad woman.
We know a few people in common through running and such links.
As you know, I like endurance type things..more ultramarathons though.
Not that I have done one, but the idea of it, trails running too…
Anyhow I digress, I thought maybe I should do a half ironman…I did think it last year too.
It would take my focus off the just running and make me focus on other things…
Plus I know I can do the run component now if need be, the bike too, but the SWIM??
Well people, THAT is where I am really am going to need to do some work.
Swim, Michelle, SWIM.
December 2015 in Taupo is the Taupo 70.3.
I am still aiming to do my marathon in Taupo in August.
Worst comes to worst with my legs, ankles, Achilles at the moment….
well I can do a September or October Marathon elsewhere.
So the revised plan is
1) Go to doctor/physio and get legs checked out properly.
2) Gotta get a job first though as saving pennies..
THEN Doctor as soon as job appears:)
So fingers X I get this job I went for today!!
Everyone do me a wee good luck jig!
3)Revise my marathon plan for August but have a 2nd one in place for Sept/Oct if need be.
If I start now as planned, it is exactly 20 weeks.
I could do a 16 week plan if need be but I will downgrade to a beginners plan rather than intermediate.
I will look at plan tonight for 16 weeks, probably one of Hal’s and a half iron man plan…
That will keep me busy.
NOTHING TODAY, RESTING, LEG IS BLOODY SORE.
RUN TONTO RUN.
