Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For Jun 25 - Jul 1

Madison => Elkhart Lake => Madison 
My definition of hot is the point where dogs no longer have any desire to chase after you and instead sit idle under any shade they can find.  As a biker, that is a good thing, and thankfully this week was hot enough to keep the dogs at bay.  This allowed me to get in some stress-free LSD (Long-Slow Distance) work.  Now, I'm never a fan of LSD work, but in this case it was better than driving the 2 hours to The Osthoff Resort in Elkhart Lake Wisconsin for a birthday party.  It also gave me the opportunity to travel on some roads that I would have otherwise never been exposed to.

I discovered that there are a lot of great roads to the northeast of Madison.  If anyone has a desire to replicate this ride then you can find the ride file below.  Keep in mind I didn't see a gas station for over 60 miles.

As for the rest of the week, well it was pretty much status quo.  Two solid master swim practices and some light running earlier in the week.  My Achilles didn't really show much improvement at all this week but it wasn't for the lack of time devoted to it.  Oh and my bike legs showed up to play on Monday morning for some redonkulous intevals - too bad they didn't show up the day prior though when it counted at the Copper Creek Triathlon.

Here are my weekly swimbike, and run totals:

Total: 364 Miles / 28 hours 33 minutes

Swim: 19192 yards / ~11 miles / 6 hours 14 minutes
Bike: 329 miles / 19 hours 20 minutes
Run:  24 miles /  2 hours 58 minutes
Core:  0 sessions / 0 hours 0 minutes
