Week 4....Breaking Through

Week 4 of 6 is almost done and again, we added to what I did the previous week. My big breakthrough this week came on Wednesday's ride. After a solid day I backed the ride up with another solid session on Saturday. I seem to really be making progress in my bike wattage, while staying strong in the pool and on the run.

I am very excited as we get closer to June 22. I will now sharpen up a bit for each key session/block. Next weekend will be my final big Sat/Sun pairing before Ironman Coeur d'Alene. I have a few goals for these sessions that will give me even more confidence when I hit the start line in June...but for now, they stay a secret.
