All Triathlon, All the Time

« Craig Alexander: 2008 Ironman World Champion

One year later after training for Ironman Arizona

I was finishing up stuyding for some lame stats class, looked at the lovely outlook calendar, and started to think about what I was up to last year. 

Next thing I know I was back on this site trying to figure out what I was doing in ’08 – and yes it was a lot of triathlon stuff.  I had just told work I was leaving, we had just put the loft on the market (brilliant idea), and were trying to downsize.  And yet we were also 1 month away from Ironman Arizona.  Somehow Chelle was kind enough to let me keep training, and during this week in ’08 she went to Brazil+Argentian for work = so that meant I could train.  More than I ever had before. 

28.5 hrs – mostly indoors, though I had 3 runs outside. 

On that Sunday I did a megaworkout – 1hr swim, 5hr bike indoors, and 2 hr run  = all back to back.  Oh and I only weighed 170.8.

Now this site is out of date and half broken, I weigh a lot more, am way out of shape, think midnight on a school night is normal (no 5am swim meets with team swedemala at the Y), and haven’t written on here in a long time.  Well anyway, I do miss triathlon, the minneapolis crew, thinking about getting ready for Gear West duathlon over my birthday, crazy 5k swims with A-aron, etc. Some day it’s coming back.  And when it does I’ll have one more Big Training Week, maybe even go on epiccamp or something before gordo and molina retire…
