Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For Dec 24 - Dec 30

Christmas Morning Ride / Walk 

I have often said people really don't know how good they can feel until they feel REALLY good. Well, even though I already felt REALLY good, some how this week I took in to a whole new level. Now it makes me wonder in general if there are even more levels of happiness to achieve in this journey called life. I can chalk my even increased level of happiness to many things including amazing friends and family, workouts, music, clean food, and a little bit of sun. However, as I reflect on the theme of social media this week, I can't seem to think that I might be alone. It seems everyone is always talking about moving on to the next year or the next thing, while in reality I really don't want 2012 to end. 2012 has been an amazing year for me and I hope 2013 is even better, but I am sooo not ready to let 2012 go.

Anyway, I had a great holiday week and had many great runs and swims, including a repeat of the same treadmill workout I have done the past two Sundays. This time I did it on Saturday, the day after my long run, and I had a hard 5K swim right before this workout. For the sake of precision I also switched to a different shoe and I didn't get my lucky treadmill, but if you have followed this workout the last two weeks then here are my numbers.

5K: 16:06
Mile: 4:57
400: 1:09

I had no DOMS today and smashed it again today on the treadmill. I should be able to drop the 5K below 16 with no problem. However, seeing as the mile is never going to be straight mile TT and I'm already significantly gased by the time I get to it, I'm not sure I'll be able to get it down to 4:45.  I still have a few weeks left in this run block and I'm using this workout as a loose baseline.

Here are my weekly swimbike, and run totals:

Total: 167 Miles / 20 hours 29 minutes
Swim: 22,450 yards / ~13 miles / 6 hours 04 minutes
Bike: 103 miles / 7 hours 50 minutes
Run: 51 miles /  6 hours 04 minutes (not a mistake, same as swim)
Hiking: .75 miles / 30 minutes
Core:  0 sessions / 0 hours 0 minutes
