Hi ... I always dreamt of doing an Ironman since i was a kid when i saw my first one on TV but never though I'd have the time the strength or the motivation. I was layed off from my job nearly 2 years ago and a good friend jokingly said lets do an Ironman ... We laughed about it for a while but a month later we where training twice a day for 3 hours. It was so hard training with 2 kids and a wife all needing attention and with the mood.. But the best thing I ever did was find out how to train with my heart rate.. My friend had an old Polar watch that he wasnt using so this was my life line. I trained smarter better and used my time better which made everyone happier. I finish my first Ironman in France Nice 2010 @ 14 hours 34mins with my new Polar CS400 and my friends old one for the run. Thanks for the memories.
