Since I have been basically crapping out on any meaningful training program (ie I am SOOOOO inconsistent!), I went ahead and looked up the refund/deferral process for the Raleigh Half IronMan coming up June 1st. Basically, there is no deferral and you only get $75 of the $225 back if you cancel by April 17th. I am super annoyed with myself and feeling pretty defeated.
HOWEVER! Today a gal in a Facebook triathlon group I belong to posted a 12 week HIM training program. I am just over 14 weeks out, so this could actually work - although, Lordy, will I have to COMMIT. I have decided to follow this plan until April 17th and then evaluate whether or not I think I can finish the HIM. I have somewhat of a base so it's not completely out of the question and I really, really don't want to punk out on this race. My goal is to FINISH and I have 8.5 hours to finish.
Today I did W1 D2 of C25K with no problems. Looking to lengthen my intervals and just condition myself to keep running after a walk break.
Am I crazy? We'll have the answer by April 17th.
