This week will see Ironman come to town for the Dublin 70.3 and as the official bike partner we will be crazy busy, particularly at the end of the week. So the plan is to get as much of the training done before Friday as possible. Read on for all the details…

Tuesday 15 3:05 (2)

 

Run 1:15 15.5k
Felt great on the run.
PM Swim 1:50 5000m

The swim was a typical “Patrick” session. He said we were doing a 30 minute time trial. Which for some reason I took to mean that the total swim would be 3-4k. So I emptied the tank on the TT thinking that I would maybe have a 1000m cool down. Patrick however had other ideas and he proceeded to kick the everliving shit out of me for another 2500 meters. I was hanging so badly at the end I could hardly pull myself up out of the pool.
