Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For May 14th - May 20th

This week was a transitional week as I wrapped up things in Tucson, packed the car, and headed home for Madison.  Early in the week I signed up for the Kansas City Triathlon and decided to abandoned the idea of Ironman Texas in favor of something shorter.  Unfortunately, my *minor* heel issue last week showed no improvement and each day I woke up with a stiff heel.  I didn't run on it all week but I continued to do some biking and swimming, but in reality I was consumed by packing everything up and driving across the country.

Secretly I was hoping that a couple of days in the car would help heal it up, but on race morning it was stiff so I decided that I would just swim and bike at the Kansas City Triathlon.

Unfortunately I'm not sure when I will be running again and my plans are definitely changing with regards to training and racing. I am fairly confident I have insertional Achilles tendonitis and I have heard that this is a very stubborn injury to rid.  My only saving grace is that I am NOT one of those athletes that has problems with stepping away from training.  I know how long fitness lasts and if I can't train at a 100% I'm not going to gain any fitness anyways.  I'm going to take things day-by-day and work towards Ironman Wisconsin.  If it means no running for 6-8 weeks then I'm totally fine with that.

Here are my weekly swimbike, and run totals:

Total: 88 Miles / 6 hours 17 minutes

Swim: 6,900 yards / ~4 miles / 1 hours 57 minutes
