|My New Wyoming Friend|
This past week I packed up all my possessions - minus a few things (mainly my professional clothes) - and headed for Bend Oregon to race Lifetime Fitness' Epic 250 Leadman Triathlon. As you may have heard, I had a pretty good day at Leadman and finished 3rd. This was actually the first time I have ever put together a good race in conjunction with a cross-country move.
Normally I would do the 2000 mile drive in two days, but this time around I decided to tackle it in a more reasonable 3 days. For those counting, the furthest single travel day I have ever done was ironically 1460 miles, exactly 10 times the distance of Ironman. However, this time around I broke it up and did some training and less traveling per day. On Wednesday morning I had a great bike/run combo in beautiful Laramie Wyoming. I also made sure to get settled into my accommodations each night at a reasonable hour and put a heavy focus on stretching and foam rolling to keep the body fresh and loose.
In the end I didn't get in a lot of training this week but here are my weekly swim, bike, and run totals:
Total: 201 Miles / 11 hours 55 minutes
Swim: 8,400 yards / ~5 miles / 2 hours 14 minutes
Bike: 178 miles / 7 hours 42 minutes
Run: 18 miles / 1 hours 58 minutes
Core: 0 sessions / 0 hours 0 minutes
