Without going into great detail here I will use my dear wife as an example. I think after reading this post you will have a better feel for how this training method/approach could fit many athletes.
Okay...as Luke would say, "...lets do this/it...!"
Anne posted an outstanding time for her first go at the Ironman distance. I could not be any prouder of her effort/showing! Below is a quick overview worth posting. I hope this encourages those who are new to this blog and to the veterans:
- Ran marathons prior to marrying me...
- Had major knee surgery in 2003-2004; micro-fracture surgery (told she would never run more then a 5K)...God is good...all the time...
- Training commences for her first super sprint (UNC Wellness - 2008)
- Takes down White Lake 1/2, Duke 1/2 (2008), and Florida 70.3 (2009)
- Signed up for IML in 2008 and began training in November
- Trained for IML following my "10 Hr Project" mindset/methods
In upcoming posts I will go into more detail on what you will need to have to take this method on. I firmly believe the key to succeeding via the "10 Hr Project" is developing/training your mental capacities. It takes great fortitude to ride hard and strong in one place for 2 to 4 hrs.
Stay tuned friends...and feel free to ask/post questions...
(Side Note: I will be inserting emails I am receiving from athletes in future posts that may help answer Qs that are most common)
