I am so pumped with how this phase went. Having 3 kids has helped me really dial in to training and just getting it done day in and day out. I make sure to get my workouts done with out getting in the way of play time and time with my wife. Basically, really early/really late/or lunch break.
Key Workouts (This week was HOT!)
35min Workout on the Trainer and a 20min run immediately after. The goal was basically race pace for the entire workout. The bike was a 3x(5min @ 215w / 5min @ 205w) with a 5min warmup. Then right after I avg. 6.40pace for the 3mile run. I would like under 7min pace for the Half Ironman.
Long Run - 11.04mi - 7.22min/mi pace
A great loop from my house done at 8pm. I ran the last 3 miles faster than race pace and the first 8 very easy. It was a success and I am feeling more run fit by the week.
