My First Ironman

Signing up for your very first full Ironman is an exciting and scary time! If you are considering crossing the threshold over to the 140.6 distance, here are some things to consider. While Ironman can provide personal fulfillment and a sense of a great achievement, be aware of the time and financial costs involved before hitting the confirmation button on the registration page. Training will start off manageable, with anywhere between 5 to 10 hours a week. At the height of training, an athlete may get into the 15-20 hours per week range. (For some maybe more!) Does your career and family life allow for this type of time commitment? If not, maybe now is not the right time. If yes, then it is a good idea to sit down with your family, significant other and boss to explain WHY you want to do this, WHY it is important to you, and the time and money involved in this endeavor. If they know what to expect and the reasons as to why it is important to you, it will make it easier on everyone and you will find yourself with a good support system.

This hip mobility work molded coordinated movement patterns, improved my rotational balance and agility, and strengthened my core and lower body all while requiring my hips to develop fluidity, flexibility and a great range of motion.
