Iron Monday

Iron Monday is done!! 50 laps in the pool (1250 yards) over lunch. Felt great, easy, nice pace. Took about 30 minutes.

After work it was 52 miles on the stationary bike at the gym. Did the first 20 mile block in 59:xx, the second 20 mile block in 58:xx, and the final 12 miles in 35:xx. That's a pretty consistent pace. It's also the longest single ride I've done in a long time, I think since the 56 mile bike leg at the B2B.


Here's the half dead/half asleep Iron Week Day 1 pic from 10:20 pm on monday. Can I really keep this up for the rest of the week? wow, tough day 1. But I got the longest bike ride out of the way.

It has been decided that thursday kelley is coming to Raleigh to buy us a house. That means I am adjusting my schedule to be able to take thursday and friday nights off to rest up for the 20 mile run saturday. we're going to meet with the realtor, submit the offer, then head to Umstead State park. She's going to do part of the run with me, but she's not trained up to do 20. It will be fun. So thursday's 15 mile lunch ride will finish the bike leg now, and friday's 50 lap lunch swim will finish the swim leg. and saturday's 20 mile run will finish the run leg. I love seeing a plan come together.

Now it's time to go nom nom nom fuel up and rest up for tomorrow's workouts. A 15 mile bike over lunch and 6.2 mile run after work. Maybe i'll squeeze in some yoga before work too.

It took me a solid month to get that damn mileage in, & you're getting it done in a week!

You deserve a medal for 52 miles on a stationary bike. I wanted to cry after 20.

My brain fries after about 90 minutes on the trainer. 2:35 is impressive. Well done

Great job. 52 on a stationary. I guess it is better than 26 miles on a treadmill.
