The week that was in training

Last week was a whirlwind.  Traveling for a triathlon is exhilarating and exhausting.  On the one hand you are away from home and all the things that need done around the house... you know... take out the trash, dishes, recycling, water the yard, mow, take care of the kids... you aren't doing.  So you have that "free time" while you are away but when you get back, bills don't stop, work didn't stop, life actually went on while you were gone.  Meantime you had to hurry like hell to pack a bike and make a plane departure time, get home late and try to recover.

It's a full time job in itself!

Last week's numbers include IM Boulder, so they will be a bit skewed but just subtract 70.3 miles and 6 hours... and you have the actual training.
Biking : 91 miles
Running : 19 miles
Swimming : 3.47 miles
Total time : 10:06:47
Looking back at the time I was able to train and how I did at IM Boulder, it makes you wonder how people cut time out of life to train for a full ironman.
