Ironman 70.3 Training – Week 2 – December 3 – December 9 2018

Week 2 is in the bag and everything went according to plan.  I was in FL for the week so all my swimming was done in a short 17m hotel pool and my bikes workouts while in FL were done in an indoor hotel gym bike.

I ended the week with just over 9 hrs of training time.

Unfortunately due to the weather, I didn’t get to ride outside and based on the weather for the upcoming week, next week may also be all indoors.

A major difference this week has been running on new Hoka Bondi 5 shoes.  Prior to this week, I had done a short run in the Hokas, but for this week, all my runs were in the Hokas and I have to say, they feel great.  I don’t know if this is just coincidence or the fact that I’ve been running less mileage in these opening weeks, but my Achilles has not been bothering me.  I think my long relationship with New Balance may have come to an end and this will be a new relationship with Hoka One One


Plan for Next Week:

Here is the plan for this coming week.  I may have to move the Monday swim around as I have to attend my son’s choir concert, but other than that, I expect a pretty smooth week
