Professional Triathlete Training Log - Weekly Swim, Bike, and Run Miles For Sept 3 - Sept 9

Drew Says "Go Baby Blue!!!"
Yesterday I had the opportunity to compete and complete my 13th Ironman. Although I wasn't sure if I would even complete this race, I ended up doing just that thanks in part to my Team Baby Blue cheering squad. Although mentally I bounced back as fast as always, I know the race took its toll on me and I certainly pushed more than I would have liked.  I did what it took to scrape by while trying to salvage my body for one more EPIC effort at Leadman Bend in less than two weeks.  On that note, if you want to join me in Bend, Oregon, you can use code LTFTRI18 and save 40% off registration.

As for biking... I had very low key week leading up to the race.  Part of this had to do with some ill-timed saddle sores of massive proportion that made riding virtually pointless.  I did enough to keep the legs revved up but not aggrivate the sores even further.  For those that don't ride or have never had them, don't even ask, and just be thankful you haven't had to deal with them.

As for swimming... On Monday I did get in one final pool swim at my local pool, but then it closed for the summer and I'm too poor to afford a daily swim pass anywhere else.  As a result, I was relegated to Lake Mendota and Lake Monona for the rest of the week and did the same workout just decreasing the mainset each day.  That workout was a couple hundred yards warm-up followed by repeating 200s following by a short cool-down.

As for the run, I went on a couple of light runs that included some work in the 70.3 pace range and a small amount of work just slower than threshold pace, but with a marathon on Sunday I didn't want to run myself into the ground.
