3/18 - 3/24 Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles

Finishing Ironman Cabo with long time friend Christine Anderson
Since returning from Ironman Cabo I have bounced between feeling ok at best to downright awful. When feeling awful I have had a combination of chills/fever, stomach ache, vomiting, headaches, and general fatigue. It has definitely been a rough week for me and as a result there has been very little training. Because of this, I made the decision not to race at the Tucson Triathlon today and I will also skip Ironman 70.3 Oceanside next weekend, along with possibly scrapping Ironman 70.3 Galveston as well.

When the body doesn't cooperate there is nothing you can do but give it rest. Hopefully with the appropriate rest I can heal my body and expunge any excess fatigue as I set my sights on the Wildflower triathlon in early May.

My weekly swim, bike, and run totals:

Total: 22 Miles / 2 hours 53 minutes
Swim: 5,400 yards / ~3 miles / 1 hours 38 minutes
Bike: 22 miles / 1 hours 14 minutes
Run: 0 miles / 0 hours 0 minutes
Core:  0 sessions / 0 hours 0 minutes

  3. I followed you at Cabo! Congrats, at least I think you did well :)!!! Did you think so too?

    Sorry you're sick. You've been pretty healthy for awhile so at least you had a good run up until the race.
