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!

I woke up extra early because I wanted plenty of time to swim. I have been making up my workouts the last week or two. I have an official schedule which starts January 1st, 2007. This is the start of my official 20 week training for the half-ironman. Almost there!!

I went swimming today because another big snow storm is on the way. I wanted to make sure I get my workouts in no matter what because the last blizzard knocked my training out for almost a week. I did lots of shoveling, and some workout training videos. I will be better prepared for the next storm!!

October 24th, 2007 Swim:
8x100's (15 sec rest): 2.02, 2.11, 2.17, 2.13, 2.11, 2.09, 2.07, 2.03
Average Time: 2.09

What a difference I have made in the last 2 months. I have improved my average by about 18 seconds!! This is incredible.
