First Week of Ironman Training Almost Done

Ironman Training was supposed to start on Monday, where I had scheduled a 45 minute swim in the morning with a spin followed by a 1 mile run at race pace for the evening. Unfortunately, there was a blizzard Sunday into Monday, and I couldn't pass up skiing up at Cannon. Two of my cousins, Will and Kevin, and I made our way to Franconia Notch to get the best skiing I've ever had in the East. Kev and I went over to Mittersill and found ourselves some waist-deep untouched powder. I could get used to Ironman Training if everyday were like that.
However, Tuesday came around and I was able to adhere to my schedule(45 minute run at 7's and 90 minute spin in the evening). Wednesday was great, getting in a swim, a 90 minute run, 45 minutes on the trainer another 15 on the rollers and a 30 minute snowshoe run.
Here I am on Thursday, foregoing my scheduled spin to write in this blog(my readers have to stay informed!).
By far the most challenging part of training will be the swimming as the pool availability is limited to early morning, which is me at my worst(and least motivated).
Hopefully by logging all my failed attempts at adhere to my schedule, I can motivate myself to get my butt out of bed in the morning and fit in those(very needed) swims. May 7th will be here before I know it so I need to get things together.
