Training Week #23 (Madison Boot Camp Training Week)

Although it is too early to be peaking, I did peak training this week (23 training hours…I will not be repeating that training intensity again). Coming back from my Half-Ironman in Muncie Indiana, I drove right thru the site of Ironman Wisconsin. I took most of the week off so that I could spend a few days to train on the actual bike and run course. Since I had nothing else to do, and I was taking time off work to do it, I did a lot of training. The details of my time in Verona will be a separate post, but I toured the bike loop 4 times and in am very familiar with the layout and the challenges. This was easily the most important week in my training program and I am pleased with the results. I know what I am up against, and I know what I must work on. I have 4 training weeks to go and I feel confident that I will be ready for the challenges ahead.

The Plan:

Tuesday-1:00 swim/1:15 run
Wednesday-0:45 bike/0:30 run (with transition)
