Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For May 21st - May 27th


I've made it through my first week at my summer base camp in Madison, and despite no running, I felt pretty good about my training.  Usually it is this time of the year where I start to gain fitness thru racing, but with my Achilles tendinitis I'm not sure how much racing I am going to be doing.  Instead I returned to a base building period and I will continue this for a bit and focus on some other areas that often get neglected in heavy periods of training.

As for the Achilles, I took the first step towards recovery and got in my first ASYTM session at the PT this week.  I'll take it as a good sign that the PT couldn't visibly determine which heel has the issue, but despite that I'm not taking any chances.  I know that Achilles issues can linger for quite some time and even if I do get a few successful runs in I won't be declaring that I beat it.

On a brighter note my brother-in-law ran the Madison half marathon this weekend and I had two nieces and one nephew that ran the kids race.  All the races started and finished at the bottom of our building so it was easy to spectate and for once it was great to be the one that wasn't racing. My only was responsibility was making sure my youngest nephew - who wasn't racing - stayed hydrated.  Pretty easy to handle that with a Trisports water bottle filled with Drip Drop.
