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!

Sunday, April 01, 2007

All 3 events back to back today as race prep, but only the swim is higher effort. Use the nutrition and hydration information that you've gathered so far in training and plan for what to take in here. Try to start this session a couple hours after breakfast--just as race prep.

I woke up early because I volunteered to help setup the race. I ate shredded wheat (dry) early before I left. I am pretty sure this will be my breakfast in the morning. I wore my triathlon suit. No problems. I left strait to the pool after the awards and drawings for the race. It took awhile to get in.

My race schedule said to wear a wetsuit. Not today. There were way too many kids and I was not going to "look strange with confidence". 30 minutes with first 400m at RPE7, settle into RPE 3-4 afterwards. I pretty much reached the goal.
