Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For Sept 17 - Sept 23

My New Wyoming Friend
This is the last week that the training update will be late. Starting this week I will be back to publishing on Sunday night or Monday morning. For the last few weeks I felt like my life has been in constant transition, but now I am finally back in Tucson and I am planning to get back to some actual training once I get settled in.

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 swimbike, and run totals:
