Week 3 of Base 2, done. Third week was the last of the "work" weeks of Base 2. Now is a week of R&R. It was a tough week trying to squeeze in all the planned training and hitting 9.5 hours. I had to rearrange some stuff, but it worked out. Barring any issues, Base 3 will start on Monday, March 7 and I'll top out in volume for this peak cycle in the 3rd week of Base 3, March 21 thru 27, at 10 hrs, 40 min. I am peaking for Rochesterfest Olympic on June 19. After June is when the IM training will start and eventually I'll top out at 13-14 hours of training during that cycle. Probably need more than that, but gotta do what I can. My goal is to finish IMWI in 13 hours.
Here are the stats from last week (click TRAINING page above for completed month):
Swim: 4450 Yds, 1h 50m 15s (3 swims)
Bike: 71.0 Mi, 3h 53m 15s (3 bikes)
Run: 24.26 Mi, 3h 7m 317s (5 runs, but one was a 5 min warm-up, and another was a 15 min easy jog, so really there were 3 actual run-runs...)
Weights: 40m (1 quick strength session)
TOTAL TIME: 9h 30m 47s
