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 had a pretty good swim day. I am getting tired of swimming. Of course, that's what 4 days in a row will do for you. The guy next to me at the pool had a very strong cup of coffee. I am not sure if he was drinking it or saving it for later. I like coffee, but wasn't too fond of the smell today.

30 minutes with strides. RPE 3
Distance 3.40 miles
Pace: 8:49/mile

It snow yesterday and so I went to the treadmill at the gym. Towards the end of the run, I raised the elevation to a much high level. The last minute, I lowered the elevation to none and jumped the speed to about 5:45/mile pace. I only did this for about a minute.
