Week 14 Ride the Rockies/Ironman Wisconsin - A time for rest and renewal
Week 14 of training was a time for recovery and rest. The week started out with a return from Colorado after an amazing trip for Ride the Rockies and exploring Colorado. On Tuesday, I went for a short ride and also had a short run. Wednesday was my first swim in over three weeks. Not a bad swim, and it was nice to get back in the pool. Thursday was just a short run and swim. Friday was a short ride, and then I finished the weekend with a 27 mile ride and 1.75 mile run on Saturday and a long run of 6.5 miles on Sunday. At the beginning of the week, I was pretty tired from the previous weeks of training and riding. However, by the end of the week I was starting to feel stronger. Week 15 will be a time to increase the training again and add some intensity. Now the post will only be Week xx Ironman Wisconsin.
