Day 476 - Swim, Bike, Blog!

May 29, 2014                  240.4 lbs

Hiya all. Today I had a swim and bike assigned. I spent most of the day dealing with a car issue and was feeling stressed, unfocused and undecided by the late afternoon. But I went and worked out anyhow!

Here is the swim:

200 swim - 200 kick - 200 pull
10x100 - 10 sec rest - evry 5th one easy
10x75 - 10 sec rest - pulling, breathing 3,5,7 by 25
10x50 kick - 10 sec rest
10x25 - 10 sec rest - fast, NO FREEstyle
400 swim long and steady.

It was a good swim with lots of visualization of the swim in Arizona. I also started swimming as relaxed as possible while still pulling hard. Basically, testing how hard I could push without losing my breath and needing to recover.

My bike workout was a one hour easy spin.

I would encourage any readers of the blog to leave a comment below. Not on my Facebook page. Usually, when I ask this, I get crickets.  .  .  maybe this time will be different!


  1. Mike you have been kicking unbelievable ass! Great work! Can't wait to see the picture of you with that Ironman medal around your neck!

  2. Thanks buddy. I had to turn on "approve comments" because of trolls.
