Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike and Run Miles For Feb 13th - Feb 19th

Cold / Snowy Valentine's Day Swim From Oro Valley Pool
Feb 13th - Feb 19th: It was another solid week of training with lots of pennies added to the penny jar.  This week started with a snow fall in Tucson with accumulating snow in all the mountains surrounding Tucson including the Tucson Mountains, Tortolita Mountains, and of course on Mt. Lemmon.   It was quite a site and a cruel Valentine's Day surprise exiting the Oro Valley pool at 1:00 pm at a temperature of 33 degrees.

As for the training, well I got in some TT riding doing some longer 20 minute intervals, swam all six days that the pool was open, and went to the track by myself on Sunday to do 4 x 3 mile at marathon pace with stretch rest + 400 jog.   I think I am going to do more long runs like this as it really helped me execute each step with better form.

The highlight of the week was joining the University of Arizona triathlon team, and their coach Brian Grasky, at the track for the 2nd time in two weeks. The main set was an easy 3x1600 at 10K pace but I did it is a 3x1600 at 10K pace descending to 5K pace.  5:42, 5:18, and 5:11 is what I came in on.  It was a short workout, but it was great to open up the legs a bit.
