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!

50 minutes, ladder
10:00 RPE 3
10:00 RPE 5
10:00 RPE 7
10:00 RPE 5
10:00 RPE 3

Time: 50:06
Odo: 13.3 miles
Max: 23.1 mph
Avg: 16.0 mph
Distance: 13.34 miles

My ride was inside on a trainer. I should have gone outside, but I didn't feel like the adventure. It is much easier to get ladders on the trainer anyways. I felt pretty sluggish, but I made it.

40 minutes at RPE 3 strides
Time: 40:23
Distance: 5.2 miles
Pace: 7:46/mile

Awesome run today. I clocked every mile and I was feeling pretty good. I started ripping off the band-aids as I went. I felt pretty strong today. I ached a little. My last mile was 7:05. I want to finish close to 40 minutes.

Ladders always seem to take it out of you. I really don't like trainers unless it is a convenience issue, or the weather is bad (cold).

When are you heading down to Florida next week?
