Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For Jun 11 - Jun 17

Intersection of Badger and Sugar River Trails #Endless
Another week in Wisconsin has been banked and it feels like summer is already flying by.  My Achilles is progressing slowly thanks to PT with ASTYM, stretching, and lots of foam rolling with my latest torture device - I'll be sure to do a post on it sometime soon.   I was able to do back-to-back run days for the first time in a while and I also finally dropped my run pace below 6 minutes per mile.  I'm no where near back to 100%, but progress is progress. Unfortunately all the additional time working on the Achilles has removed my ability to get in any core work.

This week was also the start of masters swimming and it seems like for the first time ever I could be leading the fastest lane. Some ringer might decide to show up - I hope they do - but for someone who learned to swim at 25 I have to say that I have come a long way over the years.  With that being said, the swim coaches said I still have horrendous form, but I look forward to continuing to work on it with their help.

As for the bike, well I continued to explore Wisconsin by mountain bike.  Now I probably don't need a full-suspension 29er for what I am doing, but the overkill bike gives me a better workout.  On the downside, I don't have a power measuring device so I am back to perceived exertion and heart rate for metrics.  I did get in some road riding as well but the majority of the time was spent on the mountain bike.

My race schedule is a little bit ad-hoc for the moment.  I still plan to continue with the races as scheduled, although likely I'll pair down a couple of the 70.3s at the very least.  Ironman Muncie 70.3 is probably the first causality on that list.
