Ironman Training Week 5

Swim: 5000 yards / 1 hour, 41 minutes
Bike: 44 miles / 2 hours, 32 minutes
Run: 18 miles / 2 hours, 22 minutes
Strength: 1 session / 60 minutes

My miles and times were less than prescribed.  Monday night I had a meeting, so couldn't do my strength training session (which actually gave me my first full day off in about a month).  My weekend run was replaced with a 5k.  I decided this year that I wouldn't make up my weekend training because I was doing a race.  I decided, instead, to limit my races so it wouldn't be that big of an issue.

I had been trying to schedule a weekend ride on the KC Triathlon bike course with Drew from twitter but the weather steered us away.

I will be working on my Corporate Challenge 5k race report but a quick review is I did not make my sub-20 goal.  I'm going to get that goal sometime!  My next chance will probably be at Head For The Cure 5k.  There has been rumblings of doing the Amy Thompson run in which there is an 8k and 5k, so maybe I'll do the 5k.  We'll see.

I have two posts that I need to get published, so hopefully I'll push those out this week.

Training this week will continue to push the distances but still nothing I haven't seen before.  I'm hoping to do a trial time trial race at the downtown airport on Thursday after work.  Once again, it's dependent on this stupid weather we are having.  It should be warm enough but it might be a bit too wet.  If anyone is interested in joining, let me know.  I've been trying to get some folks together at work to play along as well.
