The past 5 weeks constituted my biggest block of Ironman-specific training - 3 build weeks, a recovery week and then peak week - so I've looked at those the most. In just those 5 weeks between July 2nd and August 5th, I swam 45,182 yards, biked 671.8 and ran 113.7! Not huge numbers compared to some people but the strongest block of training I've put in for Ironman ever. I like to think of it as a nice sensible amount that got me to this point uninjured and happy!
The miles for the weeks. That 3rd week left me utterly trashed and yet I was feeling good for week 5, so I know we pushed my limits just right.
The hours I put in training. My first 22 hour week (and just before it, my first 20 hour week)!
Looking at my key workouts, I know I've done the big work. Now it's just about putting in the time to recover properly so that I'm ready to race in 2.5 weeks! Eeeeeek! :)
