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!

It was a good day today. I was at the gym and in the pool before 5:45 am. I worked hard on the swim. I either missed 1 x 100m swim or I didn't clock it with my watch? I gave myself 15-20 seconds rest between each repeat. I was very consistent with my time and very happy. I can't wait till I start swimming 100's in under 1:50.

I quickly change and drove back home and hopped on my back. I would say it was about 15 minutes total transition time. I wanted to make sure I had enough time to do the bike. I had no problems with the gatorade that I drank!
