Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For Jun 4 - Jun 10

Organizers at the Wisconsin State Capital
This week was a historic week in Wisconsin with the recall elections taking place. For those not "in the know", Wisconsinites voted on whether or not to recall Governor Scott Walker and unfortunately I pretty much live at Ground Zero for those rallying for the recall of Scott Walker.  Now I am not taking sides, but I am confident in saying that I will sleep better and recovery quicker now that I don't have to worry about vuvuzela horns sounding off at all hours of the night.  With that being said this week was also historic for me in that I won my first ever Olympic distance triathlon.  I know it is tough to believe that I could actually overcome the deficit I typically build for myself in an Olympic distance swim, but I am proud to say that I have done just that in my win at the Elkhart Lake Triathlon.   I'll do a full write-up on the race but I'll save that story for another day.

In the mean time training was so-so this week.  The week started out with the continuation of my a stomach bug from the previous weekend but cleared up midweek and I got in a few solid but short swims, and a handful of V02 max intervals on the bike.  My Achilles seemed to progress a little bit and I was able to do one short pickup where I dropped the pace from my "do no evil pace" down to just slower than tempo. It felt ok, and more importantly, it wasn't anymore more stiff the next morning than it had been with the "do no evil pace".
