This was a very rewarding week. I really began to focus on getting in some serious workouts to mark the beginning of my building up towards my half distance triathlon in May. The week included multiple long and hard workouts in the beginning and ended with an Indoor Triathlon at Bradley University in Peoria, IL. By competing I qualified for the NCAA Triathlon Championships at Clemson University in April!
This week I have a fun and unique goal. The Rec Center here on campus is having a three week long “Indoor Ironman” competition where during those three weeks you are asked to complete 2.4 miles worth of swimming, 112 miles on the bike and a 26.2 mile run. I thought it would be fun to try to get all those distances in one week. I began yesterday and will work through Sunday in order to get the required distances. What a week!
