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!

Today was the first bike ride with Team Shuttle Pack. It was very exciting and I learned a few things. We all met about 9am and rode through Chatfield State Park. We then came back at our starting point and headed up Deer Creek Canyon. We all broke up on our own at this point and headed up the mountain. It was a tough climb. I felt like Lance Armstrong on the road. The way down was a little fast. I was going 30-35mph almost the entire way down. That was with head wind.

Time: 1:42:55
Odo: 838.40 miles
Max: 36.6 mph
Avg: 17.8 mph
Distance: 30.58 miles+

After the bike ride I went to Bicycle Village for Triathlon Day. I got to meet Michellie Jones, 2006 Ironman World Champion and Joanna Zeiger. What an awesome experience.

Just when I thought I was done, I went for an afternoon swim. Sunday was going to be another busy day, so I figured I would just swim too.

1,000m Time Trial
Time: 20:43.62
200m split times: 3:53.99, 4:06.47, 4:19.22, 4:22.62, 4:01.32
Average 200m: 4:08.72
Total: 1,050 meters (includes short warm up)

I came home and did some Tom Holland's abs workout. I really enjoy this training video.

How cool is that. A couple of classy ladies for sure. It looks like your training is coming along nicely - you should be in top form for your race.
