Life, work and moving into a new house are my excuses for not posting a training log in the past two weeks.  But, I’m back on the wagon again and making a point to be more timely with my posts.  Hope everyone had a great ‘first day of summer!’  It’s been warm and dry here in Colorado, and although we are a few hours from the fires, the smoke and haze do make it to Boulder and affect the overall air quality.  Still, it was a great week of training!  Our new house is about 1/4 mile from a trailhead that leads to more gravel trails with great mountain views!  It’s now my new favorite place to run in Boulder!


Sunday:  2,200 swim; weights/core.

Monday:  Easy bike in the morning; about 5 miles in the evening.

Tuesday:  8 miles including 30 minutes of 200/100 hill repeats (300 rest); weights/core in the evening.

Wednesday:  5.65 miles in the morning; 27 mile ride in the evening.

Thursday:  1,700 swim; 5.65 miles in the evening.

Friday:  Weights in the morning/7 miles (ran to work and back)!

Saturday:  31 mile bike ride followed by almost 9 miles.  Very warm during the last two miles of the run, and I ran out of water.  Still, I managed sub IM marathon pace after biking IM pace for 31 miles.  Yay!

Weekly Totals:

Running:  39.7 miles

Biking:  72 miles

Swimming:  3,900 yards (2.24 miles)
