Richard's Ironman Race prepararion

Ironman marks the end of my years racing schedule. Compared to 2007 I didn't have the same overall base this year. At the pre-race meal they said the average training week over 7 months is 48 miles (77K) running, 250 miles biking (400kms) and 7 miles swimming (11km).

By the numbers over the first 10 months of the year

2007
1801 km running
5510 km biking
102 km swimming

2009
1360 km running
4209 km biking
72 km swimming

But in the last 4 hard weeks of hard training

2007
196 km running
581 km biking
11 km swimming

2009
290 km runnning
1222 km biking
11 km swimming

Next post will be the race report.
