Ron Ledesma  My journey. Making up for lost time. Living life to the fullest. Spartan | Trifecta Tribe x4 | Half Marathon x6| Marathon |Triathlon x7 | 10 mi | 15k

Medal Monday

Finally put the finishing touches on my display. Growing up, I had never participated in any sports. I have been overweight most of my adult life & when confronted with health risks, I decided to do something about it. My first attempt running a 5k was in 2012. When I realized I could do it, I was excited & motivated. I have even placed in my age group in a 5k several years back. I have worked with great trainers & coaches over the years. I have completed multiple 1/2 marathons, a full marathon, 4 yrs of Spartan Races earning a Trifecta medal each yr from 2014-2017 including 2 Texas Trifectas. I decided in 2018, my 3rd yr of Tris, to focus strictly on training for Tris. Next is the Kerrville Tri in a couple of weeks which will complete the 4th of 4 races in the Texas Tri Series! A personal goal I have been working towards. I am also registered to complete IronMan Waco 70.3 in late October. I have been blessed meeting so many like minded people on my journey who are not only supportive and motivating, but also inspiring. I will be 53 this December & as they say, age is just a number. Find something you love, set some goals, make a plan & go for it!
Thanks to my brother-in-law @flatback_leather for the leather & woodwork.

Sunday Swim - wetsuit open water continuous swim. Got 5 loops in even after having a loop two collision and got clocked pretty good. Did a little treading to catch my breath and cough up some of the water I took in as a result. But you should have seen her, I mean the other guy. ;) recovered well and finished the remaining three loops without any other mishaps. Two weeks for the Kerrville Triathlon half distance. Feeling much better about my ability to complete the distance.

It wasn’t pretty but I got the big bike/run brick done this morning. Unfortunately, due to weather outside ride didn’t happen. However, I was able to get in an extra 1.5 hours in the spin class to get about 30 miles in prior to the regularly scheduled class to get a total of 48 of the 50 miles scheduled for today before the 11 mile run off the bike. As usual, David was a great sub for Joanna. Of course there was rain to deal with but I think it kept me cooled during the run. Had some issues with cramping but a little nutrition tweaking should resolve that for next time. This was my first time for the bike/run distances so I am glad I was able to get it done before the big day in a couple of weeks for the Kerrville Triathlon.

SWEET! Soon to be added to my collection. #gdfr #bicycleworld #imwaco703 #ironman #triathlete #anythingispossible

All weather training! Must be ready for any conditions and because I’d rather run in rain than do any more than maybe 30 mins on a treadmill! Thanks my Spartan Race days! Great 8.31 mile run this morning. Felt strong on the hills and had an unexpectedly nice negative split.

Great ride this morning. Fortunately, the weather held up. Thanks to Michelle for adjusting the route to get us closer to 35 miles since @cheristringer1 and I had that distance in our training plan for today.

Quick open water swim practice. Weather didn’t look good. Made a single loop or 800 meters. Forgot to stop the watch. Lol Got a little late start, but better than not doing any at all.

Felt better than I thought I would after Saturday’s long run. Quick wetsuit open water swim before riding with the Life Time Tri Team, followed by a quick run off the bike.

I regret that workout - said nobody ever!
Traveling 12 mile long run Saturday. Got in late, went to bed late, got up early and would not miss the long run today. Started late and almost talked myself out of running the full distance but pushed through. First long run carrying a water bottle. Glad I did. Had to make a couple of water stops. One at a McDonald’s and another at a local gym with about a mile left. Calves started cramping over the last couple of miles but pushed through. #cantstopwontstop #triathlon #training #run #triathlete #roadtowaco #trilife #imwaco703 #ironman #goals
