I Can't Quit You!

Well Well . . . Look who’s been a big ole slacker!

Let’s recap:

I November 2010 I completed Ironman Florida in just over 15hrs.  In early January I had a major surgery to remove the loose skin between my legs.  Ironman Florida caused some serious issues for me there and I had to take care of it.

I had major complications after the surgery.  Staph infection then abscess and finally by April 1 I was given permission to begin training again.

I put in 3 hard weeks of training and I think it was too much too soon.  I became very ill – to the point of not being able to breathe.  Could have been a combination of illness and allergies, but it took me down.

That lasted about 3 weeks and here I have been the last 3 weeks doing NOTHING.  Sitting on my rump, gaining weight and wondering why?????

I have zero motivation.

I’ve gained 45lbs and my body hurts (even though I’ve done nothing).

I have goals mind you, but I have done nothing about them.

My numero uno goal is to complete Ironman Arizona in under 13 hours.  How’s that for a goal for a fat ass like me!!??

I have much work to do before then.  Here is the priority list:

1.     Begin eating correctly again.
2.     Focus on consumption (eat less)
3.     Start light but begin consistently training.
4.     Turn up the volume in August and bust tail.
5.     Post twice weekly on progress and situation.

I think I have the tools to complete my main goal of sub 13 hr IMAZ.

I have a great coach in Will Jones at and I know I can do it mentally and if I get my tail in gear I can do it physically.

How’s about we begin this week.

Let’s do this!!!
