I AM IRONMAN!
"Bryan Peterson of Austin, Texas, you are an Ironman!"  The words that I had been imagining hearing for almost a year.  The words I finally heard the evening of May 17, 2014.  I had been training for this for almost a year.  In many ways, I had been prepari...

Breaking the #1 Rule of Taper
The number 1 rule of tapering - DON'T GET INJURED!  Unfortunately, I broke that rule the week before the race.  Yesterday started off great.  I had an early morning 10 mile run that felt amazing and so many of my fellow runners wishing me luck.  I had dropp...

Finally a good, long ride!
I finally got a good long ride in.  Did a solid 5 hours in the saddle today.  Had a good tailwind going out and a headwind and a lot of steady uphill coming back.  It was a tough long ride that left me pretty spent at the end.  I learned I need to make a fe...

Ironman Texas 70.3 (Galveston)
Recovering from my race last weekend, I went down to cheer at the Ironman Texas 70.3 in Galveston.  I had a few friends, including both of my coaches, racing and I thought it would be fun to see a triathlon from the other side.  The early morning rain blew ...

IMTX training volume/reduction from marathon training
I had a good but tough run today. The nagging injury seems to be getting a little better. I'm dealing with it at least.  I've had to adjust my training a bit.  I've got my triathlon specific training that I'm doing.  My run training is with the marathon gro...

Austin Half-Marathon
Well, I finished the Austin Half-Marathon.  It was an interesting race.  I wanted to get back into a race environment and was excited to test my speed.  I haven't run an organized half-marathon in almost 6 years.  I also didn't want to risk injuring myself ...

Let's Do This!
I've just come from the athlete's welcome banquet.  It was very inspiring.  A lot of great stories from people who lost weight to get here, the oldest competitor, the youngest competitors, people who've done a lot Ironmans before, and the fact that almost h...

Peak Training Volume & Taper
I'm hitting my peak volume of training.  I took a couple of days off just to regroup and I feel a million times better, both physically and especially mentally.  I'm about to start my taper and it couldn't come at a better time.  I feel solid about all aspe...

New job, adjustment to schedule and dealing with mental challenges
I've just recently started a new job.  The job is great.  Great company, work from home, exciting new position.  The timing is tough, though. Right as I'm peaking in my training, I'm having to deal with all of the logistics and details that come with transi...

Tall Texan 70.3
As a tune up for Ironman Texas, I entered a the Tall Texan 70.3 in Boerne, TX.  My plan called for me to race the Ironman Texas 70.3 in Galveston next weekend.  It had sold out a few hours before I tried to register. Figures.  Instead I found the Tall Texan...

Weather struggles
We're having a very strange winter here in Texas.  I guess it's happening everywhere but this is really odd for us.  We don't normally get this many wintery days, to this extreme, for this long.  It's been cold, icy, windy and rainy.  Hasn't been very condu...

Swimversity
I've started a 4-week "Pre-Season Plunge" Swim Clinic called " Swimversity ". I think this will be a great way to get people back in the water before the race season kicks off in full force.  I need all of the help I can get and I really benefited from the ...

As part of transforming my life and adopting a healthy lifestyle, I discovered triathlons and tapped into my inner athlete.  It's been my passion ever since.  When I'm not doing that, I'm a solutions consultant for a software company.
