Eric's Half-Ironman Training

I am now training for my second half-ironman race. The race is in Boulder this time in August, 2007. I finished the Florida Half-Ironman in May, 2007. Wish me luck!

Starting today, I will train for 12 weeks. This time will be my pre-training. Starting January 1st, 2007 I will start my official training over a period of 20 weeks. The time allotted should be enough to get me in good shape.

I did my swim at the Beck Rec Center in Aurora, CO. Because I am a city employee Aurora, I get in at no cost. This will make my training much easier. I will work out at 3 different facilities. I will try to keep track of all my times for the workouts. I will exclude the time for warm ups and cool downs.
Today was swimming:
Warm Up: 300 yards
5x100's (15 sec rest): 2.05, 2.17, 2.10, 2.12, 2.10
Cool Down: 200 yards
Total: 1,000 yards

The triathlon class went well. The group ran to warmup. We learned new stetches and warmups. We then did bricks. The bricks consisted of biking for 5-10 mintues. After the bike, we got off and ran a lap or two around the track. I pushed it extremely hard. I felt great afterwards.
