Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike and Run Miles For Jan 2nd - Jan 8th

The Road to the Top of Mt Lemmon
Jan 2nd - Jan 8th:  This week was a week focused on swimming.  I got in a total of 8 sessions over 6 days with a lot of strength work and some intensity.   The University of Arizona Tricats put on a triathlon camp for their students along with students from Colorado State University and New Mexico State University.  The camp gave me an opportunity to get in another Mt Lemmon ride.  I gave the kids a headstart and played catch-up to maximize the effort.  My 60 minute power was 20 watts higher than the week before so it was nice to see that improvement so early in the season.  I also had a great tempo/threshold run down the Rillito River with USA Olympic Medal winner Bernard Lagat, the tri camp kids, and fellow professional triathletes Aj Baucco, and Doug Maclean.  Here are my training totals:

Total: 219 Miles / 22 hours 04 minutes

Swim: 30,450 yards /  8 hours 32 minutes
Bike: 175 miles / 10 hours 13 minutes
Run: 27 miles / 3 hours 19 minutes


Here is the power file with wattage and heart rate data for the ride up Mt Lemmon.  I had double warm-ups including a 20 mile warm-up to the meet up location, and then a second warm-up to the base of the mountain.
