3.8 KM SWIM

Let’s be realistic, you don’t want to swim 3.8 km in your backyard pool. You’ll likely get dizzy. Plus, not everyone has a pool, so we’ll replace the swimming part of our Ironman by a core exercise. Considering that in open water, it’d take you about 3,000 strokes to finish the 3.8 km, and that you are usually swimming with a 6-beat kick (3 kicks per stroke), we will replace the 3.8 kilometers swim by 9,000 flutter kicks on your back. 

 

180 KM BIKE

You can split the total distance in a maximum of 15 bicycle rides over the month. If you do not have a bicycle to go on a ride, I have a couple options for you: indoor biking if you have a stationary bicycle, elliptical if you have one, skipping, stairs, etc. I will come up with some fair conversions by Monday for you! But ideally, you would do it on a bike, even if it’s not a performance one. 

 

42.2 KM RUN

No choice here. You have to run! You’re getting pretty good at it anyways, from the results of the 5 km! The only rule is that you can split the marathon in 12 different runs over the month. 

 

KEEP TRACK OF YOUR IRONMAN

Until I can create a database with a personalized login for you, I will ask you to keep track of what you are doing to achieve your Ironman. Your journal should include the date and time of your workout, the distance, the time it took and any other info that you’d like to include.
