6/24 - 6/30 - Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles

Kayaking on Lake Wingra
Last week I wrote my weekly status update mid-trip in the airport at Las Vegas. I thought it was mid-trip, but after a flight delay, some thunderstorms mid-flight, and then a torrential storm on my way back from the Milwaukee airport to Madison via vehicle, I realized that air travel is no piece of cake. In this particular instance I rolled into Madison from a midday Spokane flight at the time the sun was starting to come up. My only saving grace was that I only had 4 bags, instead of the 7 bags I would have had if I hadn't used Tri Bike Transport to take care of my bike, gear bag, and wheel bag.

The week post Ironman is always a guessing game to some extent. The key to the game is usually following the mantra "less is more", and even if you are feeling good it usually catches up with you later on and you kick yourself for not following your mantra. With that being said, I spent a lot of time in the pool. It wasn't fast but it might have been my highest time/volume ever. Besides swimming, I did a little biking and running as well, but it was all super easy. Otherwise it was about letting the body rest and that included sitting in a kayak on Lake Wingra and floating around as people twice my age were blowing by me.

My weekly swimbike, and run totals:

Total: 124 Miles / 17 hours 41 minutes
Swim: 32,808 yards / ~19 miles / 10 hours 58 minutes
Bike: 99 miles / 5 hours 44 minutes
