Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For April 30th - May 6th

This week was the big lead up to Ironman St George and finally the execution of Ironman St George.  I ramped down my training pretty quickly this week and did a fast 20 minute interval on the bike on Monday, 3x1600 track with 400 recovery on Tuesday, and also 2x(8x100 descending) in the pool on Tuesday as well.  Wednesday was a travel a day.  On Thursday I went for a shake out ride and felt ok but not great, I also went for an easy swim.  On Friday I went for another shake out ride and a shake out run.  Neither felt great and I actually felt pretty sluggish on the run.   Saturday was Ironman St. George.  I have a separate race report up for that race.  Sunday was a day of rest.

I didn't do any core this week as I was starting to feel worn down and wanted to give the body a chance to recovery.  In addition on such a major week it is pointless to check body weight.  For instance on Saturday I weighed in at 154 lbs but on Sunday I weighed in at 167 lbs because of post Ironman bloating.  In addition, on such big weeks I don't count food as I want to make sure I am listening to the body more so than following a plan.

Here are my weekly swimbike, and run totals:
