Yes, it’s true…I R.C. am an Ironman.
Well, a LAZY MAN Ironman.
But an Ironman none-the less…
This winter my local YMCA hosted a Lazyman Ironman. It is a legitimate Ironman…except that instead of doing all the work in 1 day, you get 45 days to do it!
You don’t have to wait for your local Y or gym to host a Lazyman. You can completely start your own. Here’s what you need to accomplish in 45 days.
26.2 miles Run/Walk
112 miles Bicycle
2.4 mile swim (or 10,000 meters on the rowing machine.
So during the month of December, my workouts changed to meet the goals of the Ironman. I started with a walk, walking about 2 miles a day to hit the goal. I then went to the exercise bikes and rode 5 miles a day.
That left swimming. At first I tried to fit in actual swimming laps in the Y pool. However, the bitter winter cold kept me from wanting to get wet at the gym. So I decided the rowing machine was better for me.
Keep a log on you phone or on a piece of paper and see if you can be the next Ironman!! It’s a fun way to get you to try other things to add to your workout!
Have fun Ironmen!
