Thanks for letting me tag along

  • 2015 was the year of the half Ironman.  I worked really hard to break the 6 hour mark and was thrilled with my results at Steelhead.  Now I want to break 5:50. 
  • No weasels again this year! Rude! I did see a pheasant and a snake. 
  • I am already signed up for Ironman Wisconsin 2016.  I have a few other races tentatively on the schedule as well.   The priority race will be the Ironman so I am only looking at races that will help me improve for the Ironman. 
  • I am like a broken record when I mention I want to break 2 hours in the half marathon and 3 hours in an Olympic-distance triathlon. They are still on my goal list but I did not make them a priority for 2015 and won't be a priority for 2016. 
  • I spent a lot less money on triathlon stuff in 2015. No new bikes and a lot less money on nutrition since I wasn't doing the super long bike rides that Ironman training requires. 
  • No injuries this year! And I took steps to improve my irritated piriformis muscles.  I started going to the chiropractor during the summer and I've seen a lot of improvement. I do need to increase the amount of time I spend stretching and doing my corrective muscle exercises. 
  • According to Garmin Connect, I ran 143.6 miles, biked 1238 miles, and swam 13.8 miles.  For all activities I covered 1399 miles over 116 hours. That is down a lot from 2014 but I am guessing it will be up well over 2000 miles for 2016.
