Finally off to a good start

So, my conditioning/running is finally getting going in the right direction.  I have planned out goals over the next 4 years to build my conditioning level up to the point that I compete in an Ironman Triathlon.  My overall goal, a goal is a dream with deadlines, is to complete Ironman Kona. 

With this in mind, I’m working from a current body that is about 60 pounds over where I want to be when I am in triathlon shape.  So, I will have a considerable amount work to do. 

My run on Monday was 3 miles, very slow, but I made it through.  31:40, in the hot summer heat here in Central Ohio, but at least it wasn’t humid.

I followed that run up on Tuesday, with a 2 mile run in 19:52.  Again, hot and sunny and it felt a little better.

Today was my best run yet, which I’m sure will be continuing for awhile until I actually get into shape.  3 miles today with a total time of 29:43, under 10:00 per mile!  Now, only to get back to the glory days of high school when my training runs were at 7:00 per mile.

Putting my dreams here, to keep myself accountable

Hello to everyone!

So I’ve decided that this would be a good way to hold myself accountable for following through with my dreams and goals.  I imagine that most of you who are reading this will agree, that if you only track your goals on your own they are harder to achieve.  When you have followers and a good support system, things just go smoother!

There are several areas of my life that I will talk about here including finances/money (my favorite!), running/fitness, work (including my goals to be an entreprenuer and leave the 9-5), and many other things I’m sure.

Thank you for being a part of my blog and support system, I’ll be back often to keep everything up to date!
