Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For Oct 29 - Nov 03

Swimming at Barton Springs in Austin, TX
I had never done an Ironman 70.3 on a Sunday and an Ironman the following Saturday, but now I have that in the books.  After a long drive back from Panama City Beach, along with a Costco trip to break it up, I have had a chance to reflect on the week and Ironman Florida.  I'll save the full reflections for an official race report, but in general I was happy with my race.

I will also say that I'm a big advocate of doing a race once before really excelling at it.  I've never been as gifted as many of the other pro athletes out there and I have always had to work harder and smarter to get where I am at.  Given the chance to rewind, there are many things I would do differently that would all lead to greater success.  Gaining as much experience as I can is one of my top priorities.  I hope to make Ironman Florida and Panama City Beach a yearly tradition and intend to be back next year.

Here is what I did for the week:
