It's been about a year for me. Right before vacation I targeted a late season Ironman distance triathlon for me to train for starting after vacation. Unfortunately, I completely ruptured my achilles tendon on vacation.
So, it gives me a little bit more motivation to get through rehab and back to training because I've already committed to the ironman. I'm doing it for a charity and I've already had discussion with the charity. No backing out now.
Good news was I had surgery Tuesday before last and visited the surgeon on Monday and he said he was shocked at the healing that has already begun. Instead of 4 weeks in the cast we're doing 3 weeks. It will take another 3 weeks to get out of the boot and probably 2 months of rehab to bring the leg back up to strength. So that puts me at February to start training hard again.
Other than swim, bike, run, eat, sleep I'm going to incorporate the core performance training/diet from Mark Verstegen.
The goal being to get in as good of shape as I was in my 20s. I still have all my results from tests at the Coopers Clinic in my 20s and will do the tests again around September/October (one month before the ironman) and compare the results.
My 401K is now a 400K (was 301K)
