IMAZ training Week 6

Phew, what a great, big week! As mentioned in my last post I headed to Tempe to get some time “on course” and had a blast, but first here’s the weeks digits (sorry it’s two digit posts in a row)! I’ll save you the math; that’s 173 miles and 14 hours and 46 minutes!


Another build week, I veered a little of the plan mostly at the weekend to make best use of my time in Tempe. The bike mileage is up after a long ride on the course and swim mileage is down mostly due to having to cut trips to the gym short to accommodate the kids going back to school. Run mileage has incremented a little but is steady in the mid 20’s.


Next week is the third build week, it’s going to take a bit of shuffling to get it all in but I am sure it can be done, the mid week challenge will be the 2 hour run after an hour’s swim done as a brick. Also there is no rest day so it will be 14 days total by the time I get to my next rest day. With that in mind getting as much sleep in between is going to be critical, no glazing over in front of the TV at 10:00pm and then realizing it’s 11:30pm especially when the alarm goes off at 5:00am!  The 30 day vegan challenge is going well and my energy levels are high…which is a good thing for sure, I am saving my conclusions to the end so you’ll have to wait!

12 weeks to go!
