16 weeks to IM Texas

running ironman training

Wooow! I’m already in the middle of the ironman training, time is passing way too fast!

First of all, Happy New Year!!!


I’m following Dave Scott training plan which I got from Training Peaks and even though I found it kind of boring at the beginning I’m really enjoying it right now. It has a total of 24 weeks of training, 4 or 5 of which were sort of a building phase (that which I found boring at the beginning, since I was already putting some volume); and then comes the big volume and the more dynamic workouts, which is where I am right now. So, so far so good.


I finished last week with a 24k long run (15 mi) feeling good. I hadn’t run that long since my NYC Marathon training. And along with the long runs the ice baths came back!!!



I missed a swim because it was cold in Florida (only that day) and I didn’t want to get a cold when I jumped out of the water.


My training this week:

Swim: 5,000 m

15mi,Bike: 163 km (101 mi)

Running: 48 km (30 mi)

Total time: 12:50 hr
