Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike and Run Miles For Feb 20th - Feb 26th

Sushi Garden House Rules
Feb 20th - Feb 26th: Race season is just around the corner and this week was filled with lots of solid volume including a 106 mile ride from Oro Valley up to the top of Mt Lemmon and a 21 mile track workout that was 5 x 3 mile with 800 recovery + stretch rest.  I got in a solid 6 days of swimming and still was able to focus on the core.  Week after week my body is getting stronger and more importantly my form is really falling into place.  I'm not sure I have ever ran with such strong form and I'm excited to see if I can hold it together late into the Ironman marathon.

The highlight of the week had to be my roomate taking me to Sushi Garden at the Tucson mall for their "all you can eat" sushi.  I was a little skeptical going to an all you can eat sushi place but I was pleasantly surprised.  I liked the fact that they had strict rules governing the eating including surcharge if you didn't finish everything, and the fact that you had to eat all the rice that was provided.  When all was said and done I had 56 rolls (about 1.5 times the size of typical plain rolls) and 18 pieces of Nigiri.  This meal would easily cost a couple of hundred dollars in Chicago, IL but only $19.95 in Tucson, AZ.

  2. Emily - refresh my memory. Where do you get sushi in Springfield, IL. The only thing I remember in Central IL was Ko Fusion in Champaign, IL.
